The Easter Egg Hunt is something fondly remembered by so many of our visitors. I found it especially wonderful how many families add their own unique details to the occasion! I hope you find something new as you read about these traditions, and that you smile at the differences.

Kisses for Easter

For my daughters first Easter,I left a trail of Hershey Kisses from her room to her Easter Basket. She is now 7 years old and just thinks that the trail of candy is the greatest thing. I believe she looks forward to this more than her basket.

Follow the Clues

We have a family tradition that we have passed along to several other families who adopted it in some form. When our children got up Easter morning they didn't find a basket. Instead there was a plastic egg with a clue inside. This led them to another plastic egg, which led to another, and so on. Up to about a dozen eggs. They had so much fun they were almost disappointed when they got to the basket at the end. When they got older we had them make up clues for each other. It's been a great tradition.

An Easter Note

I just started a tradition a few years ago, of hiding plastic Easter eggs with little notes inside, telling what their prize is. It can be in the form of a poem or just a clue(like this goes hippety hop). I buy little items such as candy eggs, or a little stuffed Easter eggs or bunnies for prizes. I make sure everyone does get at least one prize, but most get around three. I have 10 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren that participate in the hunt, needless to say even the older ones enjoy it. It seems my children enjoy it more then the little ones do! So after the Easter dinner everyone is anxious to hunt!

The Easter Spider

My parents came up with a different twist on the traditional Easter bunny. We had the Easter spider. We (my brother and I) came out of our rooms on Easter morning and we each had an Easter basket just outside of our door. Tied to the Easter basket was a string and we each had to follow our own string throughout the house and around and over and under furniture all over the house. It was a blast!! As we followed our string we found treats along the way.

Easter Post-It-Notes

I used to hide treats in a pathway, and at the end, the boys would find an Easter surprise! When we got a dog, my sons were still young, but old enough to read. If I hid the treats, the dog would get them before Easter morning. So I used post-note and wrote the next clue on each one. I did up about 15 for each boy. Such as, look in freezer, check in dryer, backseat of car, anywhere around the house! My sons are 21 and 18 now, and they still look for that first post-note on their bedside table every Easter morning to begin 'the hunt'!

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
