How many eggs do you usually fill and hide per kid?  Tomorrow it will be my daughter and my two nieces for our eggs hunt and while I know that I accidentally bought way too many plastic eggs (146 haha) I have no clue how many I should do.  Two of them are three years old and one is four years old. 

So... how many eggs do you fill per child?

we did ours during spring break (which was middle of march) when my daughter, niece and nephew were all together..(thought it would be more fun for them) and we had 98 plastic egg holders..and we put 2-3 eggs in each plastic one.....it seemed to work good...there was enuff for them to have fun (we went to the park, and hid them there for the kids) and yet they didnt have MOUNDS of chocolate.......

 

of course tomorrow, i will be doing another lil hunt for my daughter..LOL..but i wont be using the plastic containers...just gonna hide them in the living room for her  :)

Oh yeah we have a variety of candy and then some stickers, little toys, and change.  Then we will be hiding them along with some of the eggs that we decorated today.  Thanks!!!

We do a LOT! I also went a bit overboard. About 125 plastic eggs filled with different stuff. Not sure how many kids we'll have tomorrow though. Last year at my sister's (or was it the year before?), there were 4 kids, and nearly 400 eggs. The kids would fill their basket, dump it in a bag and go back to hunting. They had a blast! I say fill them all :-)

Ugh!!  Now I have to go fill more haha.  I did 90 of them, hmm... maybe I will get up early and do more.  Although I know my daughter will be getting an additional 40 or so later in the day.  I still have a bunch of stuff to fill them with though so I really should so that it doesn't sit around here forever!  Thanks ladies!!
