A family tradition has been an annual Easter Egg Hunt. As this is the last year the family will participate in this tradition, my spouse designed a breakout hunt to end all hunts. The Sprouts had to find eggs with clues, then solve the clues alone and collaboratively to open locks in order to find the ‘treasure’ inside the locked boxes.
We were surprised when the Sprouts wanted an Easter egg hunt this year. We thought they might have grown out of the annual family event. But no, they asked for it again. Even though a day late, the egg hunt was eagerly anticipated. Sprout Two, up very early, kept checking every half hour to see if Sprout One was awake. Finally, the princess awoke from her beauty sleep and joined the knight on a quest to find thirty-one eggs, within each a letter to spell out the phrase that would lead them to the ‘treasure’.
