    what are you doing with your toddlers? Do you have any special treats for them???

    We bought a gingerbread Easter house kit that we plan to make with Hannah, I'm going to make some sugar cookies with her to give out to friends, we'll dye Easter eggs and of course hide them from her (should be interesting to see what she does :rofl:). I want to do some Easter crafts with her but need to get some art supplies together :) And I've bought her some books, a few music cds oh and of course some chocolate for her basket :D

    I'm not entirely sure lol.

    I bought those plastic eggs to fill with stuff, but I don't think she'll be able to do an Easter Egg hunt lol.. so I'll just put them in a basket probably and let her open them up,

    I have an egg dying kit to do with her..

    The Easter Bunny is coming into my work on the 30th so I'll probably bring her to that but I think she might be afraid of a giant blue bunny.. if they get the same costume they did last year lol. Actually no.. I think all Easter Bunny costumes are a bit creepy.

    The mall sometimes has bunnies to do pictures with, I might see about that.

    Not a lot of money to do anything this year, but she'll have an Easter basket with a bunny in it and maybe some sidewalk chalk or crayons. Not gonna dye eggs yet, too messy...but I might had a few plastic ones around (in plain sight, lol) for her to find. Austin is still too young to care yet, but he'll get some chew toys prolly

    oh Tasha I didn't know that! Will see if Square one has anything :lol: I'm sure Hannah will appreciate you for this :rofl:

    we bought some of those plastic eggs as well and got some stuff from bulk barn to fill them with.....I think we may have a slightly spoiled child :muaha:

    we did egg dying last year, Hannah was 8? maybe 9 months old and she LOVED it. It is messy though :rofl:

    Well this satureday we are going for easter pictures that will have some bunnies. I also heard about the county here having the maple in the country fest which is basically a whole bunch of farms and inn's and things that will have things going on, a couple different farm animal places for kids, wagon rides, pancake breakfast/lunches at a couple places etc... Stuff like that. So after the pictures we might go to a couple places....

    Im working on the real easter so we wont be doing much there. I thought about buying some plastic eggs and hiding them at nap time with a couple goodies. That will be it though.

    We are spending time with family and we might go to the Easter egg event at the Zoo. I don't know about any crafts. Simon just seems unable to refrain from eating art supplies. I want to do something to celebrate spring, but I'm not sure just what yet.

    Jasmine eats crayons too, my mom refuses to let her color when she babysits... its annoying. If you sit with her and color she will color for awhile before she starts eating them.

    I;ve had some colorful poopy diapers to change though he he

    Simon does really well with pencil crayons, but wax crayons are just irrisistable, it seems.
    And once in awhile, he eats the chalk at his dayhome and then he has vibrant green poop.

    I don't understand the appeal of crayons-- she doesn't eat paint... surely paint is easier to eat than a crayon
