I know Easter is finished and everyone has moved on, though we still have loads of chocolate left-overs since we’ve been rationing them to T, we don’t want her to over-do it like she did on Easter Sunday. The down-side is, it’s taking ages to get through them. I know, some of you may think I’m nuts for complaining about having chocolates around. Is it me, or do you also hear a tiny voice that says “Eat me?” every time you see one lying around?
A few days ago, little T had some friends over and since we still had loads of chocolate, even a tub of chocolates for an Easter egg hunt we planned to organise in the new garden. But since the move hasn’t happened yet, a friend and I decided to do it in the playground.
The trick was, how do we hide the chocolates with the kids around? Luckily, there is a skateboard ramp near the playground. When we arrived, we suggested to the kids, why not play at the skate-ramp first which thank goodness, they happily obliged us with nary a complaint.
They didn’t suspicious that we sent them off and were happily playing on the ramp while their mum and I quickly “hid” a bunch of chocolates around the playground with little clues arrows pointing on where to find them.
We didn’t really hide them of course, after all they are only five and one three-year-old little boy.
On the merry-go-around.
Under the see-saw and a few other visible places.
The biggest eggs we put on the fort, but since there were only two big ones, we told them that they all had to share it. Was a bit worried that it might end in tears, thankfully they were all happy about sharing.
Once my friend M and I were done with the dispersing of chocolates, we called the little rascals in.
Of course it is was easy to find …
We told them though that they had to hop to where the chocolates were, but I guess they were too excited and ended up hopping-running-jumping like little loonies.
Then they sat down to eat some of their chocolates. I was pleasantly surprised that they didn’t gobble them all down in one sitting. I guess it was because they were after all in the playground. Who wants to eat more when you can play with your friends and run and jump around like a pair of little monkeys?
Do you still have left-over East egg chocolates?
