Top-secret mission hunt
If we get a rainy Easter Sunday this year, here's a fun indoor option. Fill an Easter basket with secret agent props like those found on the Shim & Sons blog and include a manila envelope labeled “top secret.” Inside the envelope is a list of evidence to find. Hide items such as a water gun, stolen loot (pennies) and precious stones (plastic beads) around the house and let the hunt begin. For added fun, set a timer and see who can find the most items the quickest.
