Children love arts and crafts and what better time than Easter to get those colouring pencils out! Many of us will be decorating Easter eggs, sharing chocolate eggs (not me!) and participating in Easter egg competitions over the Easter hols.
To celebrate Easter and St. George’s Day (23 April) we are running two fantastic colouring competitions. The 2 -5 year olds must help George find his colours so he can slay the Dragon and they can win one of our fantastic Sponge Painting sets. The over 5s can win one of our fantastic Art Jars by coloring in our Easter Bunnies and their eggs.
To enter simply download the drawings from the Activity zone, print the page and get colouring…!
All entries must be submitted via our Facebook page – to do this take a photo of
your child’s completed art work, upload it onto our Facebook Wall and Tag the
photo with you or your child in it. All entries must be submitted by 1st May 2011.
Despite the fact that most of us associate Easter with chocolate eggs, it is actually hens’ eggs that are the traditional food of Easter Sunday. Did you know that on average people in the UK munch their way through an astounding 80 million Easter eggs a year – that’s a lot of Choc! And 43% of kids eat their first chocolate egg before Easter Sunday – tut tut.
If you have any Easter craft ideas, or any other funny Easter facts, please do share them with us…
Happy Easter Everyone
