Easter Fun and Games
With Easter fast approaching, we hope that you are looking forward to enjoying a Treasure Trail or two!
In the interim, we've had a think to come up with some fun, alternative Easter games to entertain the family with. Let us know your own activities and ideas that you enjoy by leaving us a comment below.
Hunt for Hidden Eggs
If you haven’t already, join in the fun and have a go at Steve’s Eggstra Special Easter Challenge. We’ve hidden six Easter eggs all over the internet, each containing a special prize. Our clever talking rabbit will give you a clue to where you might find each egg, so be sure to listen carefully.
You can search for as few or as many eggs as you like, but you must find all of the first five eggs in order to find the golden egg, which contains an extra special prize!
If the weather is less than pleasant, then why not replace the traditional outdoor Easter egg hunt with an indoor version to entertain little ones? If chocolate eggs are too easy to find, try hiding jelly beans, with a series of cryptic clues to help seek them out.
You can read our previous blog post, Sprinkle Some Fairy Dust – How to Write Great Clues, in order to gain some inspiration.
Remember to make a note of the number of jelly beans you have hidden to avoid finding sticky sweets at a later date!
This is a lot of fun for all ages, and all you need is some eggs and a large hill. Remember, the steeper the hill, the more thrilling the race, but the harder the climb afterwards!
Have fun decorating your boiled eggs beforehand with dyes and paints, and then take them along with you on your next Treasure Trail to add some extra excitement to your day. You never know what landscapes you may find that will make the ideal egg racing track!
Easter crafts are good fun and an ideal boredom breaker if the weather is just too horrid to be outside. Learning how to create origami chicks and bunnies is an enjoyable exercise and your creations can be used afterwards to decorate Easter cards, create bunting or even place names for your Easter table.
Instructions are easy to find on the internet, ranging from the easy to the more complex.
Knitting is another traditional craft that can be taught to children and enjoyed by adults alike. There are plenty of fun patterns and kits available that only require simple stitches and a ball of yarn, aside the odd googly eye.
You can win one of three Easter Bunny Kits, courtesy of Gift Horse Knit Kits, in our Easter Challenge!
