Happy Easter! It’s certainly been an Easter weekend like none of us have ever experienced before, but I hope it still had that little touch of magic, chocolate and fun! We have a few family traditions that have grown with us since Quinn has been a baby and I was determined to keep them going at home during these exceptional circumstances.
We usually like to start off the Easter weekend by baking our own Easter cake, but with ingredients being hard to find on our weekly shop, we went with what we could find. Quinn wanted to decorate our vanilla cheesecake with mini eggs, but those too were unavailable. We did have some Milkybar eggs which were just as yummy and Quinn could still add his hidden Mickey!
A highlight for Quinn each year is to decorate his own hard boiled eggs. For the last five years, his Peter Pan trademark design of a little Peter Pan hat with feather has remained the same and makes him so happy! Usually we enjoy going to a hill not far from our house to roll them, but this year Quinn got creative and rolled them in our garden using his bench and slide!
The favourite part of everyones Easter is of course the egg hunt! On Easter weekend we usually get together with our friends and attend a local Cadbury’s Easter egg hunt at a National Trust for Scotland location. I knew Quinn would really miss this and wanted to plan some fun activities for our little family at home in the garden.
Quinn had the fun idea of hiding his Forky toys around the house and garden for us to find. We loved the Forky hunt and it set the tone for a Toy Story 4 day!
ShopDisney brought a little magic to our home with Disney’s Destination of Imagination, an online destination of fun filled activities from arts and crafts to trivia. Each Friday the website is updated with new activities for all the family! The Frozen 2 Easter Egg Hunt was a big hit in our house! I printed the ten themed eggs and tick sheet, which Quinn cut out. We had so much fun taking it in turn to hide and find the eggs, timing ourselves to see who the the winner was! The winner of course being Quinn!
In addition to the Frozen 2 egg hunt, Quinn also designed his own Disney Store Opening Ceremony Key. Of course it was Peter Pan themed and I was so impressed with his magical design! You can create your own key over on ShopDisney.
Which key design would you like to become a reality?
