Where do you hide Easter chocolate for teens?

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Easy ways to make kids happy

Easy. The same places you hid them when they were little kids.

This reminds me of when my parents used to hide chocolates for us. They did it every year my brother and I were home, even when we were in university. The door frame was a classic place to check! The best was finding a treat a few hours or days after! Wonderful memories. I’m sure you girls will look back on these moments with great fondness :)

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark. We have two daughters: Emma (19) and Sarah (17). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
