A Hopping Good Time – Easter Holidays

Well, the Easter Holidays have arrived and thankfully so has the good weather. This is a great time to get the kids outside for some Eggtivities – I’m sure many of you are planning your own Easter egg hunt, but what about the Easter bonnets?

Love them, or loathe them, Easter bonnets are a fixture in the Easter calendar! So if you are faced with the challenge of making your own, we have a quick creative suggestion for you and your kids to get artistic with….

Egg-Head Bonnet: inflate a balloon and then using papier mache (made from pieces of newspaper dipped in glue) cover the top part of the balloon to create an egg shape. When dry, you will have a hard but lightweight model to decorate with paint, feathers and tissue paper for that Easter look!

Make your very own Easter Cards

We have also designed three eggcellent Easter cards for your kids to get creative with – simply download the patterns for FREE via our Activity Zone and follow the instructions. Encourage your kids to get imaginative by adding foil, tissue paper (lots of yellow!), ribbons and feathers! If you are making your own cards and Easter bonnets we’d love to see the end results – please upload your Easter pics to our Facebook page.

Although the fine weather is set to continue, come rain or shine we have the perfect game to keep your kids entertain for hours. Our mini computer game – Catch the Eggs will keep the kids (and you) entertained for hours.

So come on…help the bunnies catch the falling eggs into their baskets, so they don’t miss out on their Easter treats!
