I began this fun tradition on a whim three years ago. We were killing some time before having to head to a family Easter gathering, so I grabbed some uncooked eggs, corralled the family and we headed outside for an Egg Run! You know what I mean: place an egg on a spoon, run a short distance, and the first to cross the finish with the egg on the spoon wins.
Oh my! My kids, who at the time were 3, 5 and 11 had a blast. I was referee, so my hubby participated. Fast forward to Easter Day last year, and all 3 of my kids were asking when we were going to do the Egg Run. I had forgotten about it and we were out of time, so in formal wear and all, we headed outside and ran our run! This year I am ready. And it’s getting serious! The kids are getting older and each can hold their own more or less in the race, so I whipped up an Conner Family Egg Run Trophy that will be passed on year to year to whoever wins the race! A little bit of friendly competition and fun bragging rights!
I scrounged around my house and came up with a large Easter egg, a jewelry box and some washi tape. Put them all together and you get the perfect tacky Easter Egg Run trophy! And the base even opens so I can put a slip of paper inside with the winner name and date! Of course you can make this anyway you like! It would be super fun with a natural stone base, with a spoon and a golden egg!
I showed the Trophy to my kids and they were ready to race to win it then and there. Tell me, what fun traditions do you have for Easter?
