Kinder Canada Hops Into Easter With Great Chocolate & CONTEST!

A Giant Easter Kinder Surprise Egg Display!
I was shopping with my son at the end of February, and came across the largest supply of Kinder Chocolate Surprise Eggs that I had ever seen!  Not only were there multiple displays throughout the store, each and every display was humongous!  Along with the usual Kinder Surprise eggs with white and pink tops, there was also Kinder Bueno chocolates and a gigantic display of Kinder Easter chocolates!

It was my 3-year old son who first brought the massive chocolate egg display to my attention.  "Kinder Eggs!", he shouted with enthusiasm, as his face filled with a chocoholic's delight.

For those of you wondering, this was a cold winter for Canada, hence my son's snowsuit, scarf and gloves worn in the supermarket!
Chocolate Heaven! 
The Easter chocolate from Kinder was fantastic: packages of mini chocolate eggs, 100g Kinder eggs with Easter-themed toys, Kinder chocolate packaged with stuffed frogs, rabbits, and elephants, Kinder Egg Hunt kits, Kinder "Giant Surprise" eggs with giant-sized toys, a Kinder Mix package shaped like a house with a bunny on front, a Kinder Surprise bunny with a 4-pack of eggs shaped like a basket, a duckling-shaped Kinder Surprise 2-pack, and a variety of foil-wrapped Kinder chocolates with pictures of bunnies, chicks, chicken, lambs, and ladybugs!  Phew!
Easter Hunt-Worthy!
Because my blog posts were so popular about the 2013 Marvel Heroes & Disney Princesses Kinder Surprise Egg toy collection, and the 2013/2014 Kinder Surprise Egg toy collection, I'm showcasing the Kinder Surprise Easter 2014 Toy Collection, below!  The collection prominently features frogs, with a few lions, a cat and bunny!

I'm feeling pretty hopeful that it's Spring now, after a long, cold, Canadian winter!  And with Easter around the corner, I'm already planning our egg hunt!  I have fond memories of hunts as a child, and my dad would even give me a special Valentine's Day hunt, with rhyming riddles directing me to the location of the next clue or treat!  In that same family tradition, I will be having a special Easter hunt for my 5 kids--with the goal of finding delicious Kinder Chocolate Surprise Eggs and Kinder stuffed animals!  Proud to be a #KinderMom! 

For my 3- and 4-year olds, I hide the eggs and surprises in their rooms, as they become a little impatient if they don't find eggs right away.  For my 6-year old, I do a more challenging hunt in his room with written clues made up of simple sentences and pictures.  For my 7- and 8-year olds, I create a more complex hunt throughout my entire house with rhyming riddles that will keep them on their toes.  As there is still lots of snow on the ground where I live and the ground is wet, I will not be doing an outdoor hunt this year.

One year my son did not use a basket in his egg hunt, and (unbeknownst to me) put the small foil-wrapped chocolate eggs in his front and back pockets.  Needless to say, his body heat melted them quite nicely and the eggs were royally smooshed!  This year, I'll definitely insist on collection baskets for all of the kids!

I created a pretty cute Pinterest Easter Board this year, with some Easter activities that I'll be trying out with the kids, including Tulip art that uses a fork to make the tulips petals, a paper watering can make out of tinsel, and a cute mommy duck and Easter duckling set made from painted stones.

  15. Wow, what an epic display!

    Hiding eggs in a child's room is really genius. Impatience is rampant in kids, especially with all of the excitement of Easter and candy and the bunny. I can see a lot of frustration coming out during an egg hunt for sure.
