A confession...I let my kids go to Easter Egg Hunts
So, I have a confession to make: I let my kids go to the local Easter Egg Hunt! I went to Easter Egg Hunts growing up, I actually have memories of them from about 4 or 5 years old. I even remember making some strange sort of Easter bonnet.
So, why do I let my kids participate in this? First of all, I really don't see any relationship to the holiday of Easter. We're running through a meadow, searching for plastic eggs filled with candy. Second, it's fun! What's not to like about candy? Third, (and I think this is really the reason why so many neighborhoods do this activity) after a long winter it's one of the first opportunities to get everyone out to see each other again.
