Egg-cellent Ideas for Easter - Irvine Moms


Easter is a time filled with sweets, fun, and EGGitement. There are so many fun and mysterious facts about Easter that I bet you didn’t know that we participate in without even knowing!

The Easter baskets that we use each year are representations of bird’s nests and new life! Who knew right? Easter Egg Hunts have been around since the 1700’s, where men would hide eggs for women and children to find! Fast forward to today, so many families all around the world celebrate Easter with egg hunts, egg dying and loads of candy and the famous chocolate bunnies. ACTUALLY chocolate is the number 1 most sold candy for Easter. Check out each state’s favorite candy in the picture below.
