The long Easter weekend is fast approaching, which means one thing – Easter egg hunting. We worked alongside Maggy from Red Ted Art, who has taken the Easter Egg hunt one step further & changed the egg for a carrot filled with PhotoBox treats, what’s not to love! Over to you, Maggy… ”We love Easter – a wonderful time for the family to get together and enjoy some valuable time together. Of course, Easter also has to include an Easter hunt for all involved and if you are looking for some chocolate alternatives or a quirky way to give a small gift this Easter, take a peak at these super duper easy to make Carrot treat bags. Aren’t they fun? Make them in minutes and hide these in the bushes instead of all that chocolate! Materials – Orange paper or light card Glue stick and/ or tape Scissors Green tissue paper PhotoBox Jigsaw PhotoBox Keyring Start with you’re A4 sheet of paper and roll it into a cone. Tape (or glue) it into place, so it doesn’t come undone. Now cut across the top of your cone to even it out and have a nice round opening. Put plenty of glue stick all around the inside of your cone. Carefully insert your tissue paper in this and stick it around your carrot – yes there will be a gap, but you will need that in order to be able to insert your gifts more easily. Fill with your gifts – we filled it with a photo jigsaw from last Easter, we also included a photo of the original picture so the children will know what to make! As well as key ring of the whole family. You can of course add a few small chocolate eggs too! Once full, bunch up your tissue paper. Tie it, and if you need to, you can cut it down a little. We also cut the strips into it to make it look more carrot top-y. And done! The kids **adored** these surprises when we had an early Easter hunt.” ____________________________________________________________________ Thanks Maggy – what a great Easter surprise!
