After the Easter baskets have been ripped apart and after we have returned from church, the Easter Bunny continues to make surprise visits to our house all throughout the day. On these visits, he hides little chocolate foil covered eggs all around the house.
About 5 times throughout the day, while the kids are preoccupied, my husband will hide a batch of eggs. Then we will point to one of the eggs and say, "Look! The Easter Bunny has been back! How did we miss him?" And the kids will look for the bunny and search for the eggs.
It sounds so simple but I can tell you that my kids love this! It's like a day long egg hunt. And the nice thing about this tradition is that it is portable. When we go to Grandma's for lunch, we just take the eggs with us and hide some at her house.
Just make sure the kids don't see you toting a bag of chocolate eggs around. Because once you explain that Daddy is really the Easter Bunny, then it probably isn't too long until you have to have the whole Santa Claus conversation.
And I think that's probably going to be a harder conversation to have than the "where do babies come from" discussion. But that's just me.
