As Easter and the school holidays approach we start thinking about how we will entertain the kidlets for a couple of weeks, and (try to) keep them away from the sweeter treats that the Easter bunny brings.


Hand-dying eggs has been an Easter tradition for many to keep young minds, and the young at heart busy over the Easter period. It’s a fun thing to do and a great way to get the creativity flowing.


If you have never done it before give it a go this Easter, just have plenty of newspaper and old clothes on hand to keep everyone and your house looking good.
