It was touch and go with the weather last Easter Sunday, so we weren’t really sure whether we would manage to go to an Easter Egg hunt. But when you’re a parent of a young child, you have to take your chances, don’t you? Armed with wellies and waterproof coats, we decided to brace it and head for a National Trust property that wasn’t too far from where we lived.
We went to Trerice as mentioned on this post with its beautiful gardens, perfect for an Easter Egg hunt. Although T was feeling a bit sad because her friends weren’t able to join us since they had a surprise visit from their grandparents from Somerset. She had to make do with us instead, the grown-ups and a close friend visiting from Bristol.
It wasn’t an ordinary Easter egg hunt, the kids had to read the clues and find the animals with paw prints on the sheet and then tick them off. In the end, they had to name which animal didn’t leave a paw print in the park before they could get their chocolate prize.
Here’s little T reading the clues with her dad.
And off they went to find more clues.
And this is where the trail ended. Which animal didn’t leave a paw print? Can you guess?
It was the rabbit!
And it’s not surprising that the price turned out to be a chocolate Easter bunny 🙂
Did you go to an Easter Egg hunt?
It’s confession time: How many Easter egg chocolates have you devoured since Sunday?
I only ate about three small ones. Okay, fine. Maybe five, six errr, ten?
