Waitrose kindly sent us some Easter goodies to have an Easter egg hunt in our garden. Mr Z had been asking to do a Easter egg hunt so this was perfect timing and the boys were really excited to get started.
The Waitrose woodland friends eggs are so pretty with brightly coloured foil, I knew they would look great glittering in the grass for the children to find. This package comes with press out sign posts, and you can use the cardboard pack as an Easter basket. We hid a few of the other sweets around the place too for some variety.
We used an Easter egg hunt map with clues, and 10 Spring themed questions and answers. The full pack is available to download as a printable pdf at the end of the post if you would like to use it with your kids.
The boys tried their best to study the map and then raced off to see what clues and Easter eggs they could find. Mr T especially is really interested in maps at the moment, and has been drawing me some amazing maps! I remember enjoying Easter egg hunts with clues as a child too, it just makes it all the more fun!
It took a while for them to find all the eggs!
The first few were found easily but some proved a little trickier! They easily found the eggs on the climbing frame, but not the ones hiding in the long grass or near the sand pit. It was cute to see them sliding down the slide victorious with the Easter eggs they found!
Lots of questions were found along the way too, and they worked together to answer them. The questions are a good mix of easy and not too easy.
One of the easier clues: “What do you do to a plant to help it grow“?
Finally, it was time to eat the chocolate!
The boys all loved the Waitrose eggs. They are perfect for an Easter egg hunt as they are not too big so it’s okay for them to eat a couple. They are just the right size for little hands.
Don’t forget to have baby wipes ready at the end for all the little chocolatey hands and faces! 🙂
