The Tale of the Great Bunny was released by Cadbury 20 years ago and you can download your free copy on the Cadbury Easter website. It’s a story about making Easter special and fun, a real family tradition. Over the years we have taken part in some magical Easter Egg Hunts. One of my favourites was the one that our playgroup held in the church rather than outside because of the weather. There was something very special about being in a beautiful Victorian church with so many excited little ones.
Another favourite was last year’s which I organised with my sister in Scotland. We had great fun thinking of hiding places, creating clues and setting the hunt up for 4 very eager children. They had even more fun following the trail round, reading and solving the clues, finding some treats along the way to put in the Easter basket until they eventually discovered some larger eggs at the end of the hunt.
This year I needed to conjour up some of that magic at home. This year though I’m pushed for time (isn’t that usually the way?) and I’m on the look out for some ways to make the whole experience that bit easier for the organiser (that’s me). I’d like the time available to me on creating clues and hiding eggs rather than buying the things I need.
A real godsend find this year was the Cadbury Easter Egg Super Hunt Pack RRP £6.99 . Each box contains 14 hollow chocolate eggs (individually wrapped in colourful foil, which is great when they have to go on the ground) and treat-size Mini Eggs pack (so again all wrapped up) and some Easter Bunny Minis (wrapped in bunny design foil). It’s just perfect for creating your own Easter egg hunt or taking along as your contribution to an Easter party/hunt.
For very little ones (and everyone else really) I’m liking the Cadbury Hollow Easter Bunny. It’s fun and easy for them to eat, plus it tastes great too because it’s made from Dairy Milk.
I know my nephew, a massive Peter Rabbit fan, will love the Peter Rabbit and Flopsy Rabbit Toy Easter Egg Packs. You get a lovely soft rabbit toy and a hollow egg made from Dairy Milk.
We went to our local woods where they have some fabulous fairy doors to create our very special Easter Egg Hunt. It certainly added to the magic and the sense of mystery.
It’s always sad to reach the end of the hunt, but finding a nice chocolate egg there always helps.
Such an excited boy!
