Thankfully, you have a mother who understands such things and who is willing to make this work. Enter "Happy Day-Before-Easter," the day when the members of the King family receive their Easter baskets. Another bonus? Keeps the emphasis of the real meaning of Easter ON Easter.
So we negotiated a 10AM wake-up time with the teens to start the hunt. We always do something different to send children looking for their baskets; some years it's a collective hunt, some years it's individual hunt, sometimes it's follow-your-string-to-the-end, or whatever comes to mind.
This year, I found several treasure hunts online and thought of having each child complete a different one. Then I found this Frozen themed scavenger hunt. I knew my girls would love it and my boys would roll their eyes. Perfect!
Each child received the cards in a different order and the hunt had them criss-crossing through the house until finally - the end. Some were more amused than others.
No candy this year, just books, games, hair accessories, gift cards, jewelry, and -
yeah, we really went there.
