A simple activity for most families
Can at times be interesting and challenging for some
How long should our easter egg hunt be?
How many easter eggs should we hide?
Shall we add a hot cross bun?
It’s our first time planning this fun activity
And it has everyone buzzing with wonder
Fingers and toes crossed for having a ball
But oh, just wish for not a single blunder
You see, our Sparky has ADHD
So coordination of this event is key
Mum, Dad, Sparky–and his best bud Dan
All head off in different directions
Each with their mighty plan
To find as many chocolate treats in the garden as they can
Five minutes later… and the search is on for Sparky
He seems to have wandered off and abandoned the hunt
‘Oh my, what could he be up to this time!’ Exclaimed his Mum
Only hoping for not another entertaining Sparky stunt
Whilst to some this little ‘missing in action’ stunt might seem a frustrating pursuit
For Sparky though…it usually ends up quite a hoot
Though just as everyone had thought, further down the garden
There he was happily jumping away on his trampoline
‘Sparky, why are you not hunting for easter eggs?’ asked his Dad
‘I could not find any and got bored,’ replied Sparky,
‘Or maybe I just was not keen’
‘How about we pair up for the hunt?’ Sparky’s Dad suggested
Sparky liked that and immediately chose to be paired up with his Dad
Whilst His Mom and Dan were full of cheers for this challenge
And oh so glad.
‘So Sparky,’ Dad began; ‘If you were a bunny, where would you hide those Easter eggs?’
‘In a rabbit hole behind that tree’, Sparky pointed, shrieked, and darted off…
With his Dad hot on his heels
I found one, I found one! Sparky excitedly announced.
Beaming with delightful squeals.
