    My family wasn't big on church, but I always made an elaborate treasure hunt for my daughter, ending with her Easter basket. When she was too little to read, the clues were just pictures, but as she got older the clues became harder and harder. One even entailed looking up a word in the Oxford English Dictionary. The search took forever, since each year I added more and more clues. The ending was bittersweet. She loved the basket, but hated for the search to be over!

    I think this might be an Armenian tradition, because I have only ever head of other Armenians doing it, but our Easter tradition involves Easter Eggs. After dinner, everyone carefully chooses their egg, then the challenge is on. Each person holds their egg with the pointed end exposed and hits it against someone else's. Whichever egg remains intact continues. Whoever has the last egg standing is said to have good luck for the year. :)

    After my kids go to sleep I get their Easter Baskets ready and hide them. I get a bunch of the plastic eggs and fill them with candy or change. I use the plastic eggs to make a trail going to their easter baskets. And my kids love this!

    My grandmother would get the ENTIRE family together, 25-35 adults plus all the kids, take us all for Easter brunch. Making sure each of the grandkids was dressed up. And 2 desserts each if we wanted. My aunt would make a bunny cake with coconut fur and black licorice whiskers. My grandma passed a few yrs ago but we all still remember her commitment to family and the community, not only on Holidays like Easter but each day through out the yr.

    My parents used to hide our Easter baskets and leave clues hidden in Easter eggs for us to find the baskets, it was always a nice scavenger hunt to get the day started while mom made breakfast we searched for our baskets! I think this will be fun with my son when he gets older.

    When I was growing up the Easter Bunny always hid our baskets somewhere in the house and led us to them with a trail of jelly beans starting at our bedroom door! It was a fun mini-hunt for the baskets and I plan to carry on the tradition when I have children of my own!
