We were a bit early for our egg hunt but we had visitors and the rugby on. So it was best to keep the kids busy.
Starting with some rectangles of sugar paper, we set the children decorating with felt tip pens. (No paint or glitter today!) Apart from Harry writing 'Gus has a big bum' on his sheet, the kids got right down to it... I think it is the possibility of chocolate which makes any task a winner.
Then I took their sheet and wrapped it around a glass, leaving an over-hang at the end which I taped at the side. Then I enclosed the overhang over the bottom of the glass and taped. Handle strips were stapled on. They weren't the most sturdy of Easter baskets but they did the job.
Me and Harry had hidden plastic eggs aroung the garden. (See our lovely new garden. Sigh!)
(I had bought 3 bags of 12 hollow eggs from Poundland and added small chocolate eggs or haribo sweets to them). It took the children almost no time to find them all - I must making the hiding more difficult next year!
Oops. Gus rips his bag.
