Get crafty this Easter

WE all know that anything chocolate these days seems to have become a victim of the cost-of-living crisis, and with Easter treats like eggs and bunnies definitely highly priced this year, maybe it’s time to consider some alternatives.

Why not just lower the sugar-intake and costs at the same time and get the kids creating some crafty things to celebrate Easter.

Painting special Easter egg rocks can be fun for the whole family and is certainly cost-effective, especially if you know where there’s some cylindrical looking rocks that will fit the purpose. Even if you don’t, you can buy a bag of smooth, clean rocks at your local hardware or gardening centre.

For the paints, you can opt for the traditional acrylic paint and paint brush technique, or use acrylic paint pens which allow you to be more accurate and don’t create as much mess and clean-up. 

Simply start with a colour, let that bit dry, and start some new ones, then go back later to continue the design.

Using a combination of stripes, shapes, dots, and zigzags, the kids can let their imagination run away, doing different themes for family members, and even start making a collection of their own which can be added to each year.

This year, have a little fun, get creative and reduce the chocolate intake at the same time.
