Easter is here, but maybe you don't have all the money to throw at the biggest basket the People's Republic of Walton has to offer. Why not do some fun things with the kids that won't cost you an arm and a leg!

1. Easter Egg Hunts.

The Sedalia Parks and Recreation hunt is over, but there are two others happening on Easter Sunday.  Santa's Sub's and More will host an Easter Egg Hunt on March 31st at the Indian Foothills Park in Marshall from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m.  There is no cost, and there will be food, games, and crafts. Northside Outreach will host an Easter Egg Hunt at Hubbard Park on March 31st from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for children aged 1-11. Or, you could just do one in your backyard, if you're feeling up to it.

2.  Cook or Bake Together.

You're probably going to cook an Easter meal, right? Why not let the kids help? Sure, you  might not want to give them big jobs, but you can let them help you mash the potatoes or you can let them decorate some sugar cookies (that's actually a really good way to use up any old random candy or last little bit of glitter/food coloring). After all, if a kid knows that they had a hand in making a part of the meal, they will be really proud to show everybody - and if it's a vegetable... they might EAT IT.

3.  Pin The Tail On the Bunny.

It's just like the old games you used to play as a kid.  But now, you can print out a little bunny at home, tape it up to the wall, and bam! You're done. You can google all sorts of different designs on the bunny itself - OR, if you don't even want to do that, have the kids draw the bunny themselves!

4.  Do Some Easter Crafts.

You could make Easter masks out of paper plates and paints, you could make sock rabbits, make egg shakers (you put seeds and stuff in a plastic egg and glue it together, they can play with it like a maraca) or maybe some Popsicle stick bunnies!

Either way, I hope you have a fun weekend with the kiddos!

Easterly yours,
Behka
