At a time when we need to spread joy and fill the air with giggles and laughter more than ever, we bring you a little moment of simple fun this Easter.
If you’re like me you’ll love the idea of a treasure hunt or Garden Easter Egg Hunt but not have a clue where to start. More to the point how to write clues for your Easter Egg Trail! Never fear, we’ve put our heads together to give you some ideas below for a trail in the garden…
What you’ll need for your Garden Easter Egg Hunt
Card (use a cut up cereal box if you have none)
Marker Pen (or a pen that won’t bleed if it gets damp)
Children (unless you are a household of just adults, we won’t judge!)
What to do if you can’t get out to get Chocolate Easter Eggs?
If you have managed to get hold of some eggs, then hard boil them and decorate them with some of the design ideas below. Afterwards you can make them into egg sandwiches if you’re now planning on keeping them for decoration for a few days.
