As we seem to have whizzed through 2012 already, it’s hard to believe that we’re not that far off Easter – in fact it’s just under four weeks away!
Easter is a traditional time of year (weather permitting) for egg hunts, barbeques and of course gardening. So, it’s a good time to think a little bit ahead and consider what you might do for the children this time around.
Whether you’d like to see them with their own climbing frame or swings, outdoor toys are a fantastic way to keep the children occupied and healthy during the holidays while teaching them very important social skills – particularly if they have their friends around.
We’ve looked at some great buys for you this season and this time around we’re looking at how you can make the most of the coming Easter holidays for your little ones.
Egg hunts are a part of Easter that many of us remember well – the thrill of the search, the suspense, and of course the delicious prizes! Why not set out to make this year’s Easter a truly memorable one and, with a little help from us at Wicken Toys, turn the traditional hunt into a fantastic adventure?
A simple way to add more fun to an Easter egg hunt is to give more possibilities of hiding places. Most of our multi-level climbing frames have great potential for this – have a look at this All Out Play Climbing Centre for example, complete with a climbing net, fireman’s pole and a rock wall, all with a striking turreted theme. Encourage your children to storm the castle to reap the chocolatey rewards!
Alternatively, check out the Plum Wildebeest Outdoor Playset – with three towers, walkway bridges and two enclosed den areas, this is the ideal place to set an egg hunt. Just think of all the possibilities! And with swing positions, slides and two sandpit areas, this set has a great deal of reusability. Ideal for more than one child, the Wildebeest is sure to provide long-standing entertainment and hours of play time.
If your little ones are still quite little and you’d prefer them to play a little closer to the ground, tp have the perfect solution – the Explorer Climing Frame Low Height Set. With climbing bars and a slide as well as a covered den, this set provides your young ones with a perfect addition to their Easter egg hunting activities. The Explorer comes with extendable legs, too – so when your little egg hunters get bigger their climbing frame can too!
Of course, we do offer a variety of add-ons and accessories – from covered dens, swings and lunch counters to crawl tubes, slides and fireman’s poles – that can be attached to our basic sets to provide a few extra dimensions to play time throughout the year... not just at Easter!
