Our Easter Egg Hunt

Easter egg hunt
So Easter has been and gone and I can’t believe that Harry is back at nursery today after a month off. I have to admit I was a bit worried about how the holiday would pan out but as the weather has (for the most part) been on our side, we have been able to get out and about, see friends and have a few adventures.

Easter Egg Hunt

For Easter itself, we carried out an Easter Egg Hunt (although no eggs were hidden due to Harry’s dairy allergy and the hunt was not on Easter Sunday but was a delayed event!!). Instead of eggs, the Easter Bunny had hidden personalised cotton mini shopper bags from Pearl and Earl around the garden with a couple of goodies inside. Harry was joined by one of his best friends and together they set off (whilst their younger siblings slept through the whole affair).

Our jungle of a garden proved a fantastic place for the hunt. It is so overgrown at the moment it provides a wealth of hidden corners. Harry and Evie ran about searching high and low until they came across each bag, one by one.

Harry and Evie even came across Easter Bunny’s home…but he was asleep after a long weekend of delivering eggs and bags of treats…

Inside their bags was a “flying bunny” which I made (oh, ahem…Easter Bunny made) and some Easter shaped crayons from The Crayon Box. The bunnies were filled with a mixture of rice and stuffing and had ribbons trailing off their tails so that when they were thrown they could travel quite far with the ribbons flowing behind them. This provided some good entertainment after the hunt.
