Easter Table Ideas for Kids

Posted by on Apr 9, 2014 in crafts, easter, outdoors | 8 comments

I remember hunting eggs when I was a kid.

We hunted the good old fashioned hard boiled eggs.

No plastic candy filled eggs for us.

We’d hide them and hunt them until they were rotten.

And there were always a few that we could never find…

…until several days later…

…when we would be retrieving a ball from the monkey grass and the smell would knock us over.

Or my Dad would hit it with the lawn mower…that never went over well.

Ahhh…the memories! :)

This year my girls will hunt plastic candy filled eggs.

They will hunt until their baskets are full.

Then they will sit and open up each one to see what kind of candy it holds.

That’s when the trading of candy will begin.

And a few of the eggs won’t be found.

They will discover them days later buried in the monkey grass.

They will find them by the ant trail that is now eating their candy.

And the lawn mower is sure to turn up a few.

But there will be not horrid smells.

Just shreds of plastic egg thrown all over the yard.

And they’ll have their own set of memories…

…that they’ll look back on and smile!

Tomorrow I am a part of a great series that Angie from The Country Chic Cottage is hosting.

  1. LOL- Yep- we did that with our kids, too….or the one the kid put in his pocket and stuffed it in the closet because it warmed up too much to wear it. Oh- yeah- THOSE were the good old dayx- xo Diana

  2. Your table is so gorgeous, so many pretty things to look at, I’ll have to go back to make sure I saw it all. Alot of work for you to set up and photograph. Kids will sure love all of it.
    Haha, so funny about the lawn mower finding rotten eggs. No wonder Dad wasn’t too happy, can you imagine the mess on lawn mower and the smell? Phewy, lol.
    Yeah no plastic eggs for my generation either. Before we moved to Tucson we had a big front and back yard and the woods right behind our house in Cleveland. I can still picture that house and yard, especially the woods. Memories are so great aren’t they? Happy Spring

  3. my kids would love this- so fun and colorful!

  4. Gorgeous table Melissa. I love each and every element of the table but especially that vintage (or reproduction?) table cloth. That brings back the memories for me! I hope your Easter is full of joy and great memories made with your girls.
    Blessings,
