We threw our welcoming Spring time and Easter bash for the kids a bit early this year. The kids really didn’t know the difference and because it’s early than the actual Easter date next Sunday, this equals more happy not over tired children. Easter can be a taxing holiday if your religious with a weekend starting with a Good Friday Service, a Saturday Egg Hunt, an over packed children’s church classroom, and then off to the Grandparents for either lunch or dinner. So doing something with our family before that weekend was great idea and went very well.
Thanks to Mom Select, I was able to throw a fun party featuring the Xia-Xia Pets. I’ll have to admit that I hadn’t heard of them before, shame on me! Bascially, these toys are really cute battery operated hermit crabs perfect for both boys and girls! Every Hermit grab looks different in color, shape, and size. The crabs come with pretty nifty a interchangeable shell and nifty little trinkets that you can put inside or decorate the outside of the shell itself.
My daughter and son really enjoyed our family Easter/Spring Time celebration. I made a two dozen cupcakes topped with coconut to look like a spring time lawn. It was really a lot of fun to set up our party and to see my kids happy faces! And as a parent, I’ve really been working to incorporate more fun things to hide inside eggs this year instead of candy, especially since it’s really hard to find organic and all natural candies and the Xia Xia Pets shells were the perfect fit for the larger sized Easter eggs!
My kids are quite taken with these toys! And I’ll have to admit I think they are pretty cute too! My daughter is now at the age where she likes to collect all these little treasure and the ones that come with the Hermit crabs are a total winner with her! I personally like that there are so many neat accessories, and different looking xia xia pets to choose from!
I encourage you to check out the Xia Xia website for more information and would love to suggest you include these fun toys in your own Easter celebrations!
