Easter for kids?

I was wondering what do most people do for there kids for easter, especially for kids 8 and older besides for the little ones?  I have two children 8 and 4 who i usually do easter egg hunt but also get a little something for them.  My brother has a 12 yr old almost 13 and a 9 yr old who is getting too old for Easter egg hunting according to my brother.  I was wondering what does most people do for easter for their little ones who still into easter egg hunting and for the for the older kids who is getting too old for easter egg hunting?  Also how much does most people spend.  It seems ridiculous to  me to buy each kid a easter basket that is now about $20.00 each and then do easter egg hunting which ends up costing $10.00-20.00 or more to fill all the eggs for four kids.   I am trying to come up with some good ideas for Easter for four kids who is still into it or not.

  • The older ones in my family love to hunt the eggs---maybe it is because we put money in them and one special one has a 50 in it. My son is 5 and I try not to give him too much candy in the basket I go to the dollar store and maybe spend 10 dollars on all of his easter needs.

  • Ours like to be the ones to HIDE the eggs, LOL.

    Of course, they also like to hunt the eggs as well, so we'll have a special hunt just for them with the eggs hidden really well.
