For anyone not sure what I'm talking about, the Afikomen is a special piece of matzoh that gets hidden at some point during the meal. After dinner, all of the kids present go hunting for the Afikoman. Whoever finds it gets a prize. When I was a kid the prize was a couple dollars. Probably now kids get $100. (I'm joking, I have no idea what they get these days!) Anyway, back to the hunt!
I had planned to make pony cake pops because I have a whole box of peppermint sticks already. But since baking was an epic fail, I used these treats instead:
I had hoped to play this game outside in the ring mounted, but alas it's been pouring buckets all day. (Hey, at least it's not snow this time!) So we took the fun inside.
Before the hunt could start, some weird bunny had to hide the treats:
Jampy went first after getting his ears on.
He really couldn't find any of them himself even when I basically led him to the treats.
|There's a cookie in that handle. He never found it.|
Rio went next (obviously, since I only have the two of them at home).
I put a few treats on the floor to get him started. (I should have done that for Jampy too, but honestly, I don't think it would have mattered.)
|Mom left snacks all over the barn! I find them all!|
|Side eye 'cause he blames me for this torment.|
