On Wednesday the two PK3 classes had an Easter egg hunt in the morning and an Easter party in the afternoon. It was quite the busy day for the kiddos.
Each student had to bring in a dozen filled plastic eggs, and I volunteered to help hide all of them before the kids were unleashed into the play yard. Three other moms were also there, so we were able to knock out the task fairly quickly. And then chaos ensued.
Each child had an empty egg carton to collect their eggs in, which prevented them from picking up more than their allotted twelve. Once they were done, they sat in a big group off to the side while the rest of their friends finished. And that was a great way to get a group picture once the last egg had been found!
How cute are they in their bunny ears??? So much fun. After the hunt, I left, went home to change and eat lunch, and then arrived back at school less than three hours later to find this:
The hunt (and the outside play afterwards) must have worn Riley-bean out because he woke up a little confused to see me kneeling over him. But he almost immediately asked about the Easter party, and all was well once he saw the three donut holes on his plate.
The students also had a very special surprise visitor: the Easter Bunny! He handed out treat bags to every kid. They loved seeing him and were so excited. Check out Riley’s ecstatic expression below. Thanks, Ms. Lisa, for capturing this!
The PK3 teachers were also so kind to personalize Easter buckets for all of the kids. While they were napping, their collected eggs were put into their very own bucket to take home.
Needless to say, this was a very fun party. A lot of parents were in attendance and the kids had a great time. And now there’s only one more party left for this school year. SO hard to believe.
As we were driving home, Riley said something about moving up to the big school next year but really missing seeing Ms. Amanda every day. I told him he could always go back and visit her if he wanted to but that I was sure he would love his PK4 teacher too. Such a sweet boy I have.
Have a wonderful Easter weekend, y’all!
