Easter Chicks and Their Magically Beans

Two years ago we started a family tradition during Easter in which Easter chicks arrived at our house a few weeks before Easter.  We told the kids a story of the magic to come from these little chicks and how we would have to keeping waiting till Easter morning to see if they would really share their magic with us.

The Story of The Magic Chicks
The story of the magic chicks.  They arrived at your house and it is said that they will soon lay a magical bean. You have to check them each day to see if they have laid one. When you find a bean you must plant it and leave it overnight.  If it is truly a magical bean you will wake up to a surprise!
My kids just love this story and cannot hardly get out of bed in the morning before asking to go check the chicks.  
I really look forward to this year.  Little brother will be able to enjoy it as much as big brother and I think baby brother is going to like it as well.
Our first post on this can be found here Our magic chicks laid magic jelly beans.  As we go through the Easter tradition this year I will be taking new photos to update and complete this post.  I wanted to go ahead and share in case you and your kids might enjoy this ideas as well.
