A Perfect Easter Egg Hunt
Plan an Egg-stra Special Event for Your Kids
What Easter celebration would be complete without an Easter egg hunt? Whether you’re planning an indoor search for three or an outdoor event for 300, here are a few ideas to help you organize the perfect hunt this year.
Color code the eggs according to age. Get two- to four-year-olds looking for blue eggs while those four to six search for green, and so on.
Paint a different letter on each egg. Then have the kids create words with the eggs they’ve found. The kid with the most words wins a prize.
Always make a note of how many eggs you’ve used and where they’re hidden. There’s nothing worse than smelling a rotten egg in July or finding melted chocolate under the couch cushions!
For safety, establish borders when planning an outdoor hunt. Tell kids to stay between the house and the first maple tree, for instance, or to go no farther than the mailbox.
Keep things interesting by setting up a treasure hunt for kids. Give each child a map using picture clues for non-readers. Cut out a picture of a chair, for instance, or draw a coffee table to show them where the eggs are. Then be a bit sneaky by hiding another map at one of the clues. Use riddles for older kids and lead them to more difficult places, such as a specific novel on the book shelf.

Peek into your backyard and your art-supply drawer -- odds are you have everything you need to make this bat mobile.
Trace our bat templates onto black card stock; cut them out and fold them according to template instructions. Make a small hole in the center of each bat with a tack. Poke a piece of thread through each hole, and knot it. Tie the bats to a found branch (painting it black is optional). Then hang the branch from two pieces of thread secured to the top of the window with flat thumbtacks.

Tips for a family holiday in the Czech Republic
Parents often devote great effort to coming up with a holiday that would give their children an unforgettable and irreplaceable experience while at the same time teaching them something. And many children, aware of these parental intentions, also put great mental effort into the task of avoiding a thoroughly parent-managed holiday that would mean endless hours of wandering through stately homes and museums. Yet there is a possibility of a compromise that would satisfy all parties thoroughly – in the Czech Republic what appears to be boring history turns into a captivating tale, and children and adults can agree on a common language.
