Since we became parents, Ken and I have felt that it is important for our kids to know why we celebrate Easter (and not have the true meaning of Easter fall into the background of the Easter Bunny). That said, we totally love all of the fun of the Easter bunny and didn't want to lose that! So, we've tried to sort of categorize the Easter Bunny and those things as more of a "Spring" celebration than an Easter celebration (I mean really that's what bunnies and eggs and chicks and things like that are all about!) So, with the first official day of Spring approaching (just a couple of days away!), we've had that special bunny and his treats on our minds!

Did you know that you can Instagram your Easter-themed pictures and tag @KinderCanada and they just might re-gram your photo!
To help celebrate this special time, KINDER® Canada has created a fun online contest called "Unwrap the KINDER® SURPRISE® to Win"... and if you ask my kids, it's pretty fun just to play, even if you don't win! :)
How it Works:
From March 16-31, 2015 you can open the new "KINDER® Easter" app tab on their Facebook page. Then you can digitally "tap to unwrap" the egg! When you unwrap your egg, you could find instant prizes or the option to try again. You'll be entered automatically for the KINDER® $3,000 “do-something-fun-with-the-family”grand prize gift card! How awesome would that be?!
You could also win one of two daily KINDER® Easter gift baskets valued at $50.
More Easter Fun:
Aside from the fun prizes up for grabs, you can also explore the Facebook page to find games, crafts, recipes and more fun things to do, all inspired by Easter!
Of course, KINDER® has a whole line of fun Easter products for 2015 that are always a hit with kids. Here are a few of our favourites:
And although they don't have toys inside, I'd have to say that my personal favourite are the mini eggs- sooo delicious!!
What is your favourite treat at Easter time?
