Did you know the Easter Bunny is going low-carb?
Right now, it may not look that way at Walmart or your favorite grocery store, but it’s true. As an alternative to candy, he’s filling the hollow eggs with notes of appreciation, motivation and inspiration and you can do it too.
If you love busting open a fortune cookie, then you know your kids will love hunting for eggs and getting note-after-note of encouragement, fun activities and surprises in the eggs they find.
Here’s a list of suggestions we got from the Big Bunny:
