Easter Eggs, Eats, Events and Earnings

C18th Georgian country estate, Osterley Park & House, uses all oWith the Easter holidays upon us, I have been on the hunt for things to do – either online or out and about. I have already written about the huge Eggsplorer event which is being held at lots of National Trust properties over the Easter weekend but what else is there?

With chocolate being at the front of everyone’s minds, why not take a trip to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in London’s West End? This wonderful family show is full of fantastic songs and beautiful staging and, of course, the Oompa-Loompas it is one not to be missed!

The holiday’s wouldn’t be the same without a bit of family baking. One of our favourites in this house is the good old chocolate nest coupled with a few mini eggs to top off the decoration. We also possess some lovely chocolate egg moulds – and I love this post from Eats Amazing who shares her recipe for the dairy-free, homemade version of easter egg chocolates.

Create your own egg hunt?

Last year we visited my Mums for Easter. The weather was beautiful and my sister created a fantastic easter egg hunt for her nieces and nephews with lots of clever clues which got them running round the house. Higgidy even have their own Easter Egg Hunt kit at the moment which you are able to download for free. A great way to keep them occupied for at least 10 minutes!

Win, win, win?

There are plenty of chances to win this Easter with a drawing competition to win hampers containing £50 worth of Cadburys chocolate shared by Mad Mum of 7, the chance to win an Easter party bundle shared by Junior Style and why not turn your hand to a bit of online gaming with Wink Bingo’s Easter promotion?
