Burn off the Easter chocolate with this fun alternative egg hunt idea - each egg has a fun exercise mini challenge for the kids!
Are you slightly dreading the inevitable pile of chocolate that Easter brings every year? Do you want a fun way to burn off some of that sugar-induced energy that the kids will be no doubt be bouncing off the walls with?
I've got just the thing for you to pull out of the hat come Easter Sunday, in the form of this fun energy burning Easter egg hunt!
It takes just minutes to set up - I've even created a free printable for you, all you need is a sheet of paper, a pair of scissors and some plastic fillable Easter eggs and you're good to go!
This Easter will be a rather out of the ordinary for us, as we have just bought our first house and will be renovating it over the next few weeks in preparation for moving in immediately after Easter.
Come Easter day, I'm pretty sure we'll either be sitting in a pile of boxes or be elbow deep in paint, so it's going to be a little tricky to celebrate in our usual style!
With all the upheaval of moving to a new town, a new house and a new school, I'm determined to get some Easter fun in there somewhere, so I've already planned out several Easter egg hunts for the boys to take place over the next few weeks whenever we can fit them in!
I'm sharing the first of them today, an Easter egg hunt with a difference - each egg will contain a simple exercise challenge to get the kids moving and burning off all of that chocolate!
All you need to do to set up this egg hunt is print off the list below, cut it into strips containing each mini exercise challenge, pop the challenges into plastic eggs and hide them around the house or garden, or even take them to the park, weather permitting!
Below you'll find the free printable list of exercises - just click here or on the image below to download the PDF and print it off.
I can't wait to watch my boys take part in this fun Easter egg hunt, I know they're going to love it!
