Good evening everyone!

With all of the hustle and bustle of a new season upon us, spring sports are starting up, the weather is warming up and Easter is just around the corner! This week's Nanny Tip of the Week is going to touch on fun events in the Chicago area you can do for this holiday that can get your kiddos in the spirit of spring! Be sure to try out some of our fun tips below and share your favorite Easter activities with our CCN community!

1. Bunny Rock 5K - Looking to get your kids active and have some fun in the city? Sign up for the Bunny Rock 5K over at Montrose Harbor for Saturday March 26th. They will also be playing 80s music and have a petting zoo for the younger kids ages 2-10. As of today, they are not accepting anymore registrants for the 5K, but they are accepting participants for the egg hunt so hurry up and sign up today!

4. Stay at home! - Don't have time to get out of the house? Stay in and do your own Easter Egg hunt with the neighborhood kids! Find candy or fun items around the house to stuff Easter eggs with, decorate your own Easter eggs, make Easter arts/crafts or make an Easter meal themed around bunnies, candy and all things Easter. Check out this website below for more great ideas to get you started:

​Hopefully these ideas help get the ideas flowing and your kids excited about this fun holiday. Remember to stay safe, brush teeth often (as your kids will probably be consuming a lot of sugar!) and have fun! Keep us posted on how these ideas worked for you and what your favorite ideas were. We love your feedback! In observance of the holiday next Sunday, we will not be posting a Nanny Tip of the Week so be sure to enjoy time with your friends and family. We will see you the following week for another great Nanny Tip of the Week! 

Best,

Samantha Carney
