Easter

  • Easter Egg Hunt Ideas

    Nothing says Easter like an egg hunt outdoors.

    Young children are easily pleased by brightly coloured foil eggs placed around the garden for them to discover.

    But older children need more of a challenge to have fun, and by the age of five or six, they have probably rumbled the Easter Bunny's favourite hiding places.

    Freshen up your traditional Easter Sunday with these top egg hunt ideas.

    Nighttime Easter Egg Hunt For this you will need a dozen or more plastic eggs that open out and can be filled. In each egg put a small glow stick, then hide around the garden. Hold your egg hunt once it gets dark. This adds a touch of magic to Easter Sunday not least because the anticipation will build all day and the children are being allowed out after dark.

    Rainbow Hunt To stop the egg hunt turning into a free for all, where the older children quickly find all the eggs and the little ones are left disappointed, limit the number of eggs each person should be hunting for. If you are using larger eggs then ask each child to find one egg to represent each colour of the rainbow. If you are using small foil wrapped eggs, you could make a rainbow chart for each child with a gap for each egg to be found.

    LEGO Hunt Not all children are crazy about chocolate. If you are looking for a sugar free Easter treat, this might be the perfect hunt for you. Take a LEGO set and split it up into a dozen small food bags, then fill plastic eggs with a bag each.

    Word Puzzle If you give a large present or Easter egg but you want your children to enjoy the magic of a hunt, replace little eggs with brightly coloured letters. When your child has discovered all the letters they need to rearrange them to work out what their present is, or where it is hidden.

    Jigsaw Puzzle Another fun way of revealing a larger gift is to take a photo of it, cut the picture into smaller jigsaw pieces and laminate each piece. Then hide the pieces around the garden for the children to find and piece together.

    Small Sweet Treats If your child prefers sweets to chocolate, use jelly beans as their treat. They look like tiny, brightly coloured eggs. They look especially effective if nestled in the bottom of a marshmallow crispy nest cake, or in a wafer ice cream cone or brandy snap basket.

    Sporting Challenges If you're bored of the traditional Easter egg hunt, try some egg-inspired sporting events instead. Give your children a set of challenges they need to complete before they are allowed their chocolate treats. An egg and spoon race is the obvious choice, and egg blowing and decoration is a great idea too.

    Rituals and traditions help create childhood memories, so start a routine this year of an epic outdoor Easter event filled with fun games, treats and outdoor play.

  • Start planning your next Easter egg hunt now

    We’re certain that there were many outstanding Easter egg hunts last Easter weekend. Although Easter is now finished for another year, why not start planning 2014’s early and make sure it is going to be the best ever eggs-travaganza?

    To begin planning an Easter egg hunt that the Easter bunny would be proud of, you will need to consider certain features that will ensure optimum egg-hiding and maximum fun. Our outdoor play equipment range boasts all of the characteristics which will help you to construct an entertaining Easter egg trail.

    In this blog we’re going to talk through several garden toys and pieces of play equipment that would be suitable for a family pub’s outdoor play area/garden for kids.

    On your marks, get set, go!

    Our Plum My First Wooden Play Centre is an exciting way to get the Easter egg hunt started. It has many places to hide tiny Easter eggs which are always a good way to begin a trail towards a big surprise. You could slot clues into the rock wall, climbing net, and inside of the play den.

    The next part of the hunt could be the TP Explorer 2 Climbing Frame with Den and Jungle Run. This challenging climbing frame with its high up den and monkey bars presents lots of possibilities for an Easter egg hunt. You could try hanging pieces of string with clues on the ends or eggs from the rungs of the monkey bars and the kids will have to jump to get them.

    The halfway mark of the trail can be the TP Castlewood Tower. Complete with a fireman’s pole, this climbing frame tower will be lots of fun and the platform is certainly big enough for some larger surprises and bigger eggs.

    Hide the next clue buried underneath the sand in this TP Sherwood Sand-pit.

    Our All Out Play Climbing Den and Gatehouse Set (above) will make a very interesting obstacle with all of its exciting features and slide. The possibilities for Easter egg hiding are endless. For something a little bit smaller, take a look at our All Out Play Jungle Hut.

    Next it is time to take the Easter egg hunt out onto the seven seas with this TP Forest Pirate Galleon.

    Finally step into the land of knights and dragons with the All Out Play Fort. This will make a great finishing line to hide the biggest and best Easter egg. Maybe the Easter bunny will be waiting in there too.

    We also have many other garden toys and outdoor play equipment which can all be used for commercial events or home celebrations like this. Contact us for more advice on which products would suit your event and space best.

     

  • Spring turns in to Easter at Wicken Toys

    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.
