Nothing is more fun at Easter than an egg hunt. We’ve taken part in many over the years with the most memorable being the play group one which was held in a stunningly beautiful church because it was raining; the one H took part in last year with his cousin in America with real eggs that the boys had decorated; and the one my brother hosted where he wore a pink rabbit costume. They have all been a lot of fun and usually rather competitive as I find that children are often very motivated by chocolate and sweets (maybe it isn’t just children who feel that way too).
This Easter, Tesco wants to inspire people to make the most of the holiday weekend and make it a real family occasion. So Tesco sent us a big hamper of Easter goodies and asked us to stage our very own Easter egg hunt to celebrate. We didn’t need a lot of persuading and we had a lot of fun. First of all we designed our course using clue cards and signs to indicate how things were going (hot, cold or just keep looking). Then we hid the eggs and other goodies along the course with the equivalent of a saxon hoard of chocolate at the end. Then we let the kids out to pit their wits against the course and each other.
I love the fact that Tesco is also holding free Easter egg hunts in lots of its stores throughout the day on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 April, with prizes to be won. You can download the mobile hunt app or use a paper handbook to take part in the challenge.
