One of the fun things about Easter has to be watching the children enjoy an Easter egg hunt. Over the last few years, I have cheated and attended local Easter Egg trails so that I didn’t have the hassle or the expense of having to organise an Easter Egg hunt at home.
This Easter Poundland has challenged me to plan an Easter egg hunt to show just how easy it can be done and how it doesn’t have to cost the earth too.
Easter Fun | Planning an Easter egg hunt with Poundland
Planning an Easter egg hunt when you have a fabulous garden with trees, flowerbeds and maybe a shed is easy – with many nooks and crannies to hide eggs and treats. However, when you only have a small back yard (or my yarden as I like to refer to it) it becomes slightly more difficult. Not to be deterred I have decided to opt for an Easter egg treasure trail rather than letting Roo and Tigger loose to see what they can find.
To start the preparations I scrolled through the Poundland website as I wasn’t able to get into town to visit my local store. With a range of decorations including Easter egg hunt kits, plastic eggs, decorative eggs, banners and tablecloths I was able to get all the essentials ready to decorate the house and yarden ready for the fun.
Planning the treats
Using Easter loot bags that come beautifully decorated with an Easter chick and ribbon, they are the perfect solution to add treats too. With a wide selection of chocolate mini egg bags available, you can mix and match what you include inside. Tigger is funny about chocolate (obviously, just like all other foods), and will only eat Kinder chocolate so I was very pleased to find both kinder mini eggs and Kinder bars to include inside his treat bags.
It’s not all about the chocolate
I’m not quite sure when Easter became all about chocolate. When I was a little girl my Mum would always buy us a new outfit for Easter rather than getting Easter eggs. Poundland has a great range of non-chocolate treats available this Easter, just like these cute drink holders complete with twirly straw. You could add colouring books, crayons, craft sets and even little toys instead of chocolate treats.
Time to collect the treats
With treat bags packed and hide around the house and yarden, I have prepared some simple clues on where to find the next set of treats. For example, when my clothes are dirty I put them here (wash basket). I managed to pick up two metal Easter buckets for Roo and Tigger to collect all their treats in, however, there was a range of different baskets and bags to choose from.
