It’s that time of year again where I get to go digging through the basement for the box labelled “Easter”. Then I get all dressed up in my bunny costume so I can play the game where my kids believe a fictional rabbit hides chocolate all over the place. It’s not for everyone but we have a good time with it and the kids excitement that morning make it totally worth it. Also, for obvious reasons any photos of said bunny outfit have been destroyed or confiscated from my wife’s collection of embarrassing photos of me.
I think it’s important to mention that while I am the one who gets to wear the bunny costume, my wife is the one who makes the day a magical one for our family. From a house filled with decorations, to crafts, games and the egg hunt, I feel like we are the luckiest family in the world to have her in the driver’s seat. I will say that I make a pretty mean breakfast though!
Instead of the usual dollar store chocolates this year, we decided that we were going to splurge on some Kinder Surprise eggs for the kids and hide those around the house. Pro-Tip: For you first time egg hunt planners out there, make sure that you have an equal number of eggs for the kids and try to find a way to separate them by colour. Anyway, I was excited to see how many Easter themed Kinder packs there were available and we may have spent too much money…
Did I end up buying myself the package with the monkey in it? Yes. Yes I did. You got a problem with that?! Sorry, where was I? Ah yes, it’s shaping up to be a great egg hunt this year and I can’t wait to see the kids faces as they search high and low while missing the eggs right in front of their faces.
Before I go I wanted to let you know about a cool contest that Kinder Canada is hosting on their Facebook page where you can Unwrap the KINDER® SURPRISE® to Win a bunch of great prizes! You’ve still got a couple of days left to enter, so head on over now! Also, don’t forget to share all of your Easter egg hunt pictures with the Kinder Canada Instagram page.
DISCLOSURE: I’m a #KinderDad who is part of the KINDER® Canada influencer team. I also sneak bites of my kids chocolate while they are not looking. I am not proud of this so I thought it was fitting in this portion of the post that people usually don’t read. Don’t tell my kids…
