  • Seriously? Is the Mom jealous that they will be at your home and having a good time? Maybe she's never done that for them.

    Crazy!!! Yes, if it is your home, do what you want. Afterall, it's not like your letting them do something bad.

  • I think they should be able to do it as long as they want to. My brothers used to hide eggs for us. As we got older, they found more challenging places to hide them. It was so fun!

  • i still hunt easter eggs. i hide them for my son..then he hides them for me. i will say if its a community thing there should be an age limit though unless they have it broken up in age groups

  • I did an egg hunt until I moved out at 18 :) You are not too old...ever. My girls are 6 and 8 and they will be doing one.

  • When they're not interested any more. What harm is there in big kids doing an easter egg hunt?

  • Never?!

    She sounds like a grumpy person...who cares if they have an egg hunt! My kids are 17 and almost 15 and would still do one!
    she is being rediculous

  • my kids are 16, 14, and 10 and will wake up and look for plastic eggs in the house.

    of course the eggs will have cash and not candy... but they still love doing it
