We decided to give the boys their Easter baskets on Saturday this year. Last night, I put together a little scavenger hunt that led to their baskets. This is the first year that we’ve done that and they loved it! Before we started, my guys snuggled up in our bed for a few minutes. They’re so cute!
The scavenger hunt led them all over the house and finally to their baskets which were hid behind the curtains in the living room.
Griffin struggled to open the plastic eggs at first. He hit them on his knee until Ammon showed him a much easier way to do it.
Griffin got a small King James Version of the New Testament. A couple weeks ago, we went to rent a movie at Redbox and sitting on top of the credit card swiper was one of these small New Testaments. Noah asked if he could have it and I said sure. Griffin wanted one desperately and I was thrilled when I saw the exact same ones at the Dollar Tree. He loves his “Bivle”. :)
Bubble gum flavored chapstick. I think this was his favorite thing out of his whole basket. He took it to bed with him tonight.
Both boys got these super cool crazy straws. Pictures of them in use are at the bottom of this post.
Noah got a travel chess set. He was so excited about it!
He also got quite a few magic tricks. He’s really into magic right now.
It’s safe to say that their baskets were a major success this year… whew!
