The Easter Holidays have arrived. Make the most of the sunshine with an Easter Egg Hunt in the Garden; hiding Eggs in flower beds or trees, and the house; down the sofa, under the pillows, the hiding places are endless. Keeping the little ones entertained. Finished off with a non-baked mini egg cheesecake as a reward.
Easter Hunt Ideas
When is comes to an Easter Egg Hunt, there are many different types of hunts you can do with your children. Here are few ideas to help you choose. All these can be done individually or as a group.
Why not create a treasure map of hidden eggs and treats. If you have more than one child, you can mark egg location in different colours or encourage them to work together to find multiple treasure. Consider where you are hiding the eggs, ensuring all children taking part can get to them safely.
Another way of making the Easter hunt fun is to leave clues as to where the next hidden egg is when they have found one. This can be a phrase or a couple of sentences. Make sure it is simple and to the point. As well as Eggs, you can also use other sweets, novelty chicks, or plastic eggs.
By writing a letter on each egg, this could be a good way of guessing the next place of hiding. For example; C = Chair, D = Desk, P= Pillow, T=Tree. A small basket, bucket or bag would be needed to collect goods.

- To start with you will need to create the biscuit base. Crush the digestive biscuits in a bag, so they look like bread crumbs. Mix in the unsalted butter. Lay out the mix on a tin. This can be chilled in the fridge whilst you are making the filling.
- With a mixer, mix together the cream cheese, vanilla extract and icing sugar.
