Ideas to entertain this Easter
Create the excitement of Easter at home this year with these three ideas to keep the little ones entertained.
1. Easter letter hunt
Hunting for letters to solve a mystery word can be just as fun as hunting for eggs. This is an alternative to the traditional Easter egg hunt.
The letter hunt is ideal if you have a pet that is likely to sniff out the chocolate before the children do and it can be played indoors or outdoors. This is a fun interactive game in itself but you can always reward them with a treat once they solve the mystery phrase.
