When your family has an Easter Egg hunt do you hide the actual chocolate eggs or do you hide plastic eggs to exchange for chocolate later on? We usually hide the plastic eggs as they are easier to hide. This year we did a hunt with a twist. Instead of seeing who could find the most coloured eggs or who could collect the right coloured egg we went for a Find Your Name Easter Egg Hunt.
Using a permanent marker pen I wrote individual letters on each plastic egg to create the names Adam, Mum, Nana and Grandad. I used large plastic eggs with thick letters to write Adam’s name, large eggs but thin letters to create my name and colourful patterned eggs to create names for Nana and Grandad.
This Easter Egg Hunt idea is great for children of different ages. Instead of just locating the eggs the children can only pick up eggs that correspond to the letters in their name. If the child does not know the letters needed then their name could be written on their Easter Basket for reference. If an older child has a short name you could always get them to search for their surname too.
I hid the plastic easter eggs around Nana’s garden. We all set off carrying our Easter Baskets. It didn’t take long for Adam to spot his letter A in between the daffodils.
Even the chicken started looking for the eggs. Adam is now convinced it was the chicken that left the plastic eggs in the garden for him. Although Adam was reluctant to put back the letters that did not belong in his name he was keen to point out who needed that egg.
With all the plastic Easter eggs collected by the correct person it was time to go inside and enjoy the actual Easter Eggs! We were very lucky that Monty Bojangles had sent us a range of their Truffle Easter Eggs to review.
From left to right there were:
* Scrumble Nutty – Crunchy hazelnut cocoa dusted truffles
* Choccy Scoffy – Organic chocolate coca dusted truffles
* Flutter Scotch – Butterscotch and sea salt coco dusted truffles
* Berry Bubbly – Fruity berry cocoa dusted truffle packed with fun popping candy
I instantly fell in love with their beautifully designed packaging. The colours and illustrations are simply amazing. The attention to detail is outstanding.
Each wonderfully coloured box contains a hallow truffle chocolate egg made with Belgian milk chocolate and a packet of Cocoa Dusted Truffles.
Each truffle packet contained around 9 truffles. My personal favourite was the Berry Bubbly. I loved the fruity chocolate taste yet the popping candy effect was amazing. The truffles were certainly “curiously moreish” and before I knew it an entire packet had disappeared!
What a wonderful way to celebrate Easter! Be sure to check out the Monty Land website – it certainly is a curious and semi incoherent place to be.
