I loaded the baskets up with the straw, a £1 Easter egg I got from Asda, DVDs, face paints and the colour-in bunnies.
Once the boys get their baskets tomorrow, they will have fun emptying them to play with all their treats, and then the baskets will be used to do a little egg hunt in Nanny’s garden. I found a free leaflet in Sainsbury’s this week that had cut out eggs for kids easter hunts, so I will cut these out and place them around the garden. I will also use the plastic eggs I bought and fill them with chocolate mini eggs and plant these too.
Chunk did a similar hunt at a play group recently and loved going around the playground trying to find as many paper eggs as he could for his basket, which gave me the idea!
I have also baked a mini egg brownie, as I came across the recipe on Baked Potato Mummy and wanted to give it a try.
Most of it has come out lovely, but I didn’t let the middle cook long enough, so we ate a very runny middle for our pudding tonight, and cut up the rest for tomorrow’s Easter with the family.
What are you doing for Easter this year?
