Easter - The Real Easter Eggs

It’s time to hop hop hop into Easter, a long weekend where chocolate indulgence is mandatory and children’s delight is guaranteed. But it needn’t be all about the chocolate… Real eggs are just as much fun – if you decorate them and incorporate them in your Easter festivities.

Send out invitations to your children’s friends, to join you for an afternoon of egg decorating on the Thursday before Easter Sunday. Let your kids help you create these invitations, so that the idea of a crafty day is immediately apparent when everyone receives their invites.

On the day, set out a plastic table cloth on your patio table and have an assortment of decorating crafts available – let them cut out from paper plates, hand out themed plastic confetti, and offer a choice of feathers, ribbon, wrapping paper and serviettes that kids can repurpose into egg décor. Visit our shelves for everything themed with chickens, bunnies and colourful eggs.
