Get the whole family involved in an Easter Egg hunt around the house and think of some creative hiding spots. You can place them on leaves, in cupboards or under the bed…. but remember – you’ll still find those little eggs months after, cropping up in places you forgot you had put them! Many supermarkets have smaller eggs available that are perfect for hunting! But, if you don’t have eggs, then opt instead for a hidden post-it note clues with some home made treats for the winner.
Remember to join Merton Council’s massive Merton Easter Egg Hunt, by helping to create a trail of colourful eggs in the windows of homes across the borough. Show off your designs by posting on social media with the following hashtags – #MertonTogether #EggsInWindows, and tag in @Merton_Council so they can share your creations!
