Easter Bunny for a 10 year old?

My DD just asked me if the Easter bunny was coming. I find this endearing and was wondering at what age kids usually stop believing in bunny and Santa Claus?

  • Depends on the kids.. Just do what you normally do for this holiday.. My kids are 18,11 and 9 and they all still get baskets and gifts from "santa" if they believe or not.. It is still fun for them and me :)

  • At 10 they know the truth. There's nothing wrong in pretending he still believes.

  • If they are bright kids they NEVER tell you when they stop believing... they just let it all play out.

  • She might not actually believe but wants to play along because it's fun. My older kids do that. They are 9 and 10 and know perfectly well that I hide the eggs and fill the baskets but it's fun to play along (they have younger siblings that still believe).
