Decorate An Easter Bonnet
One of our favourite things about Easter is getting to decorate Easter bonnets with the kids. In fact, we'd argue that it's almost as good as hunting for chocolate eggs! Here are some tips and tricks to help you create the ultimate Easter Bonnets, along with some ideas for decorations:
- First, choose the base for your Easter Bonnet. We sell a lovely easter bonnet that comes in three gorgeous pastel colours. You can buy this here.
- Next, decide on a theme for your Easter Bonnet. Will it be spring themed? Bunny themed? Or maybe you want an Easter egg theme?
- Now it's time to add decorations to your bonnet! There are plenty of things you can use to help them create the perfect hat. It is a fun activity that not only helps children develop fine motor skills and cooperation, it also helps them learn about Easter traditions. We have a brilliant selection of adornments that can be added to your easter bonnets including felt ribbon, stickers, chicks, carrots and eggs.
Organise An Easter Egg Hunt
Easter bunny is on his way to town. But before he can make his deliveries, he needs your kids to help him! It’s time for an Easter egg hunt. Setting up an Easter egg hunt is easy and fun. Children love the excitement of finding Easter Eggs, and it can also be a great opportunity to get them outside, while also keeping them active. Here are our top tips for hosting an unforgettable easter egg hunt:
Step 1: Decide where you want to host your Easter egg hunt. Do you want to keep it simple and do it at home or take it out into nature?
Step 2: Have each of your kids collect their own supplies for the hunt. They'll need a basket or bag to collect their eggs.
Step 3: Decide on the type of eggs you're going to be hiding. Chocolate? Plastic? Maybe even hard-boiled ones? Or turn this into a competition by having each child look for just one specific colour of egg.
Step 4: Our Easter Egg Hunt Kit will enable you to host the perfect Easter Egg Hunt. Simply follow the illustrated signposts, hop over the bunny's footprints and read the clue cards to become the greatest Easter egg hunter ever! With 5 signs, 20 bunny feet and 16 clue cards, our kit has everything you need to create a fun traditional Easter game for the whole family to enjoy.
