Easter Maze


I think the Bunny needs to hold off on bringing sugary treats this year. I’ve been sugar free for two weeks now and I’m not sure I could stand the temptation. The Beastlings have never gotten a lot of candy at holidays anyway, but I’m not willing to push my luck right now.

I do think everyone should have a chocolate rabbit in their basket, but it doesn’t have to be a big one. I’ll get a good quality chocolate one rather than the cheaper massive ones they sell. That cheap “chocolate” is full of partially hydrogenated nastiness anyway.


And then they will get some trinkets, a book or two, maybe some non-candy snacks, some play-doh toys and matchbox cars, and that will be it. I won’t be tempted to eat the play-doh, at least.

And they will get plenty candy from their school egg hunts. I suggested that the classes fill the eggs with stickers and things other than sweets but that went over like a lead balloon. I should have expected that, but it was worth a try.

I could really go for a Cadbury Creme Egg right now. Or three.

Or five.

Here’s a maze to keep the little’uns busy. Click and enlarge.

P.S. Here’s a very interesting (and somewhat disturbing) article on High Fructose Corn Syrup everyone should read.

PPS.  This entry was originally published on March 24, 2009.  I have since discovered that Cadbury Creme Eggs contain HFCS and am in mourning.  I republished because this because it is one of the most continually popular blog posts on here because of the maze.  Also, I just love that colorful egg graphic.

Valentine’s Day Mazes

Here’s a really cool Valentine’s Maze courtesy of Family Fun. They have a whole passel of printable stuff to keep your little Valentine busy.

Here is a heart-shaped Backyardigan’s maze from Nick Jr. and the rest of their Valentine’s printables.

Blackdog has some increasingly difficult heart-shaped mazes for the child who likes a challenge. Or, make your own maze.

Here is another and another and another. Can you tell my kid really likes mazes? And more.

This one is interesting – you have to count your way through the puzzle. This one is simplest, buy they have others counting by 2s through 5s.

The thing is, my 5 year old broke and dislocated his arm today at the elbow, so instead of him running about like normal, I’ll need to keep him calm and busy and he will stay put for these. I got them each a book of mazes before Christmas and he had done the entire book within 24 hours, but my goodness it kept him quiet!
