All about Easter


I can’t wait for the Easter holidays to start, hubbie has some time off work too, so it will be handy to have an extra pair of helping hands plus it means we can get out and about somewhere nice as he is also the official driver of the family!

My two little bunnies like to take part in Easter Egg Hunts and we have tried a few good ones over the years.

I was looking at this infographic by Busy Bees nurseries in Leeds and I was shocked to read about the largest Easter Egg hunt in Florida back in 2007 which had a staggering 501,000 eggs and only 9,753 children on the look out for them. Imagine your odds, you wouldn’t have a basket big enough to collect them all up!!! You could do with a few wheelbarrows…

Here is the whole infographic if you want to learn some more eggcellent facts about Easter!

Below are a couple of our favourite things we have done over Easter although I very much doubt that they come close to rivaling that Egg hunt in Florida!!! But still they might provide you with some inspiration if your wondering what to do.

Greenwood Forest Park Easter Eggstravaganza

We looked for letters to spell out a word and then the boys were awarded with a chocolaty treat! I liked this hunt as it got them lots of fresh air in the process.

Cadbury’s Easter Egg Trail Penrhyn Castle

This trail was really well though out with interesting questions, a little picture to draw and letters to unscramble. Cadbury’s host these all across the country so I am sure you will find one at a location near you! They are really beautiful settings too and being Cadbury’s you get a yummy chocolate treat at the end for your efforts.

Tea with the Easter Bunny

If you have a participating Wyevale garden centre near you then you really must book tea with the Easter bunny. The boys made cornflakes cakes, met the bunny himself for cuddles and pictures and had a tasty dinner. They left with a lovely goodie bag with soft toy and some mini eggs to eat.

We tend to do our own little Easter egg hunt at home these days, but reading about egg rolling on the infographic has captured my interest, that’s something the boys haven’t experienced yet!
