Adventures in egg hunting!

An early Easter in 2013 means early sweet chocolate for kids! Parents looking for Easter egg hunts and other kids Easter holiday activities can head to areas north of Toronto for day trip activities or even a whole weekend of Easter fun. For kids, chocolate bunnies, eggs and other candy treats are a big part of the excitement of finding organized hunts on this spring holiday.

Editor’s Tip: B*Y*O*Bag – Bring your own bag. Baskets are cumbersome and they really don’t hold a lot. Bags are easier to handle and bringing your own bag is more eco-friendly. Make it about function, not fashion.
