It’s a familiar scenario by about 2pm on Easter Sunday. Hordes of sugar-crazed children, their eyes twitching, terrorize parents, pets and neighbours for hours on end. Leaving behind them a trail of chocolate-smeared furniture and empty easter egg wrappers, they fall into a fructose-induced coma…on the garage roof…cuddling a food processor.
This nightmare of a set-up is why canny parents are bringing balance back into the Easter long weekend.
The trick to keeping Easter special for your children is to go for quality over quantity. Follow these 3 simple steps to make Easter special for your kids (without the sugar overdose!)
Easter for Kids Step # 1: Go for quality over quantity
Rather than buying bags and bags of cheap chocolate, buy a few really delicious chocolate treats. Then, round out their Easter treasure with a small, quality gift. Why not get them a brand new pair of Keyholes or Navigators, and get their holiday eye-protection sorted at the same time.
Easter for Kids Step #2: It’s all in the presentation
Next, tuck those yummy chocolates and Easter treasure into a box filled with straw or confetti.
We had a little fun in the Babiators warehouse this week. We went to town shredding paper and making little bunny paws stamps ....
To make it even easier for busy mums and dads to make Easter special for their kids this year, Babiators purchased over the Easter period will come with bunny footprints stamped over the box lid, and your child’s stylish new sunglasses nestled in a bed of confetti. All that’s left to do is to tuck a few chocolate eggs into the straw, and voila! Easter treasure complete!
Easter for Kids Step #3: Set up a bunny footprint trail
Your little ones will have so much fun when they wake up in the morning to find a trail of Easter bunny footprints leading them to their Easter treasure. Depending on your floor surface, you can make these footprints from chalk, children’s finger paint, or a mix of baking soda and glitter sifted onto a template (you can find a free Easter bunny footprint template here).
The only thing left to do is to stand back with a steaming mug of coffee on Easter morning and enjoy the squeals of delight! Now, THAT is the ideal Easter Sunday scenario.
