confectionery such as chocolate Easter
eggs, marshmallow bunnies, Peeps, and jelly

At Easter Sunday children traditionally hunt for easter eggs,
which have been mysteriously hidden all over the house and garden.

chocolate eggs or rabbits, and marshmallow chicks (Peeps),
have been delivered by the Easter Bunny in an Easter basket, which
thechildren should search for.
