Easter Celebrations With Kinder®!

Spring is finally here!  A time of rebirth and new beginnings, a season where the outdoors wake from a long winter sleep, my favourite time of year.  Although we still have cold and snowy weather in the GTA, I'm quickly getting into spring mode, ready to put away boots and hats and start up the BBQ.  One of my favourite things about spring is celebrating Easter with my family.

As a child, I have wonderful memories of Easter egg hunts with my siblings, decorating eggs with my mother and putting on my prettiest dress for church.  My boys love Easter too, and already have great memories of past holidays.

We have had fun-filled Easter weekends at our own home and at the cottage.  Last year, family friends had us over for an outdoor chocolate hunt where treats were hidden in trees, shrubs and in gardens.  Just the other day I was chatting with Lil-J about his favourite thing about Easter and he remembered finding his special chocolate in a pile of fire wood last year.  And we found an awesome Kinder® Easter Egg Hunt Kit at Costco and the boys had a blast hunting for their favourite chocolate!

My boys loved hunting for Kinder® treasure last Easter!

This year we're staying home, as we'll also be celebrating two family birthdays that same weekend.  It's a busy time of year but I love any reason to get together with my family.  This year is extra special, as my (first) nephew was born in January and this will be his first official holiday spent with his 5 big cousins.

As a #KINDERMom, I'm looking forward to planning an Easter egg hunt for the boys, and Kinder® will definitely make an appearance on that fun morning. The fantastic folks at Kinder® were kind enough to send us a basket filled with Easter goodies like mini eggs, a bunny and a giant classic Kinder® egg. We also received an egg decorating kit which we will be using Easter weekend. The boys love arts and crafts, and I think I'll have as much fun as they will decorating eggs!
