Easter fun with older kids

I had a great Easter with my kids. To keep them interested in hunting for eggs, I fill some of the plastic eggs with cash. Some people might consider this bribery, but I consider it “keeping them young for as long as I can”. The Easter egg decorating is certainly becoming much more creative. Instead of only dying them, my daughters decorated several using Sharpie markers, turning them into TV and movie characters.

Do you have tweens or teens? What do you do to keep them involved in holiday traditions?

    I still do Easter baskets for my husband and grown children.

    We turned the regular Easter Egg hunt into a night time easter egg hunt.  They got to use flashlights and the difficulty was higher.

    I still do easter baskets for our family …. mainly summer clothes, golf items.  No candy though.  I wait till after Easter and I buy it half off.
