Recipe for a Happy Easter

1 dark chocolate Lindt Easter bunny
20 Purdy's chocolate Lilliput eggs
1 bag gummy rabbits
1 bag jelly beans
4 Easter Cream eggs
15 plastic eggs of various shapes and sizes

1 Easter basket (see below)

In a large bowl, mix together the jelly beans and gummy rabbits. Divide mixture into plastic eggs. Set aside.Carefully sprinkle lilliput eggs throughout the house. Eat only two, because you can pilfer more from your child later on. Strategically place plastic eggs in places that the child can find and won't be forgotten until July. Hide chocolate bunny well away from the heater.
Let all sit overnight. First thing in the morning, be awaken by squeals of delight and clean up candy wrappers strewn all over the carpet.

Easter basket:
3 large plant pots
3 packages of herb seeds (various kinds)
1 aloe vera plant
2 bags of potting soil

Put the potting soil outside lest your child decide to immediately plant something upon finding it. Hide plant pots, seeds, and aloe vera in the farthest reaches of the house. Wonder where your child suddenly got a green thumb from, because it certainly wasn't you.

Then steal a few of his Purdy's dark chocolate eggs.
