Easter Bunny leaves the hunt in the front yard (otherwise the dogs would eat them LOL!) He/she will do that about 5:30 or 6?

Also a basket inside with a few small eggs and some stickers with their names on them.

We will give them their bilbys from us in the morning original.gif

We used to find them in the garden, as children. For my 2, they will be hidden inside, in a basket for them to find. Chocolate would melt outside quick smart, even at 5am in the morn! Or eaten by the dogs unsure.gif

Probably on her desk in her room.

She's pretty good at following instructions though and when I say, "don't eat them until I say you can," I can trust she'll follow that. She's only ever raided them when was 2... and she escaped her baby gate and ate every scrap of chocolate in the fridge sometime before 6am... lol... so I'd say they wouldn't be safe wherever they were at that age.  tongue.gif

He leaves two near the baby powder we leave out to record his footprints, next to the chewed carrot. wink.gif Then he leaves little powdery footprints all over the place with little eggs here and there until finally the powder runs out and we just have to follow the trail of small eggs until we find the big chocolate bunnies (or similar) at the end. original.gif

I've just left the nibbled end of the carrot we left on a plate on DS's bedside table and added his easter egg. He'll be so excited to find that in the morning as he's only had a couple of eggs from a hunt in previous years  happy.gif

We're going to do a little egg hunt in the garden as well.

On the table on the back veranda. We left a basket there for the Easter Bunny. We do this so Miss 6 won't see what EB brought before the other two kids get up.

DD has 3 little ones on her drawers, she will see them as soon as she opens her eyes. 4 little ones on her toybox and 4 little ones on her table in her room. Saving a heap of small ones and one big one and a fluffy bunny for the easter egg hunt we will do in the morning original.gif

On the dinner table, they each have a little Easter gift bag they put out where they sit (although two of my boys are at my mums, so nice and easy for the Easter bunny here tonight). We left a carrot out, which DS3 put in his gift bag!  The easter bunny is also very nice and leaves something little for me and DH wink.gif

The boys don't get all chocolate, the two older ones are getting a ds game and a small choc bunny, and DS3 is getting a dvd with a diary free bunny.
