THE Easter Egg Hunt is a tradition children truly enjoy and look forward to every year. This year, Easter happens to fall on the first of April which means it’s also April Fools’ Day! To inject some humor into this well-loved activity, here are 10 fun things you can put inside the Easter eggs. But in the true spirit of Easter egg hunting, give the kids and kids-at-heart the good stuff after, so everyone’s happy. Enjoy!
A tiny Easter egg… inside another Easter egg
An old bill
If you still have some old denominations like the five- or ten-peso bill lying around, put them to good use — roll them up and put into the Easter eggs. This will give the kids a glimpse into our country’s history, what the coins they have now used to look like.
A reminder of a chore they have to do back home
A piece of homework
An old photo of mom and dad
A bottle of cough syrup
Because kids absolutely love cough syrup! Sarcasm aside, this will remind them of fun times between parent and kid as the former tries his or her best to get the latter to take a spoonful. Ah, the struggle.
Old school candy
A pack of raisins
Remember these small discs we used to play with as kids? Today’s generation of kids probably have no idea what Pogs are, which makes them the perfect toys to put inside the Easter eggs. Introduce them to the simple joys of the past.
