Light Up Your Easter Egg Hunt 
With Positive Messages, Memories 
and HERSHEY’S Treats

Every year when Easter rolls around I cannot help but get a twinge of excitement 
 deep within my soul. Being a mom of three children of all ages, I have been 
snapping on the bunny tail and floppy bunny ears for years and years. I find the 
fascination of a child who believes in the magic of the Easter Bunny to be one
 of the most amazing experiences of my life. Along the path of parenting I have come up
with numerous traditions to create family memories. One of my favorite has to
 be the tradition of our Bunny egg hunt that takes place after dinner on Easter Sunday when
the sun goes down. Our official Easter Bunny(me) came up with this idea a
few years ago and it has been a big hit ever since.

It’s quite simple and really amazes the kids every time. Who can resist anything that lights up?

We start with a Memory Jar (we always have a memory jar on the counter) which has a
 constant flow of funny memories or something special that a family member did
 during the year. I look through the strips and use them as the bunny’s inspiration to write
Bunny notes to fill the eggs with.
Example: #1
The Easter Bunny loved when you made a card for you friend that was in the hospital.
Example #2
The Easter Bunny always hops higher when you read a book at bedtime!
Example #3
The Easter Bunny chuckled when Adam had on two different sneakers.
Example #4
Remember to eat your carrots and other vegetables just like the Easter Bunny!
Example #5 
The Easter Bunny wants to remind Dad not to leave his coffee on top of the van!

You can personalize the Bunny Notes to anything you would like. 
My older children love this, too. They are good sports and play along but honestly
I think they do enjoy some of the funny notes the Easter Bunny leaves inside the eggs.
Now, for the light up part of the egg- I get the light-stick bracelets at the dollar store.
They are packed as 18 in a pack so for $2.00 I have enough for 36 eggs!
Makes for an awesome light show. 
Final step is to add a delicious HERSHEY’S treat or two to the light up egg.
In our family by the time Easter dinner is over everyone is just hanging around. As soon as the 
sun goes down hubby or I sneak out to the yard and place the eggs all over.
Then we direct everyone to the yard and fun begins. I will miss the magic when
 I don’t have a bunny believer in the house any more, but I have a feeling this tradition
will carry on for years to come.
