Easter is different with tweens.

Let’s face it, EVERYTHING is starting feel different with tweens. Tweens are defined as children ages 9-12 who are in the process of leaving childhood and entering adolescence. They are slowing getting taller, more mature, and more independent. The tween years just kind of sneak up on you. Tweens interests and hobbies expand as their time spent playing with toys is dwindling. Sure, they still love snacks and candy, but bubbles and sidewalk chalk just don’t cut it in the tween Easter basket any longer.
