*This is a guest post from DaddiLife on Easter Activities for Dads.
Holidays like Easter are the perfect opportunity for dads to further the bond with their children. Regardless of whether you have an infant on a weaning schedule or a couple of toddlers who need something to keep them occupied and engaged, these activities will create Easter moments that your children can remember fondly for the rest of their lives.
1. Colouring Easter Eggs
Colouring Easter Eggs is probably one of the first activities that comes to mind when you think of Easter, and there’s a good reason for it! Not only is it a fun way for your kids to stimulate their creativity and help with brain development, but it’s cheap and easy too.
Premade egg decorating kits are available for low prices in many stores and include stickers, egg stands, non-toxic dye tablets, egg dippers and drying trays — everything you need to create some beautiful eggs! Alternatively if you have the spare ingredients at home, why not embrace your own crafts with the kids to make your very own eggs! Just make sure to lay out some newspaper or a disposable tablecloth to avoid staining tables and countertops.
One of my favourite times of the year – Easter. The Easter eggs and chocolates have been around the shops for a while now so I’ve been looking around as well as online at what’s available this year and come up with the ultimate Easter Chocolate gift guide for you.
This guide contains regular Easter eggs as well as specialty Easter chocolates from some fantastic chocolatiers. There is something for everyone on any budget.
Small Aero Easter Egg
I’m a huge fan of Aero chocolate and these small Easter eggs are great. The Aero bubbles are found inside the egg. Great tasting and value for money.
Stockists – Found in all good supermarkets
RRP – £1.50
First of all I would like to say Happy Easter to you all! I hope you all got lots of wonderful chocolate Easter eggs and are scoffing lots of cakes!
During the Easter period I have been entering lots of competitions (especially for Easter eggs!) I have yet to win an Easter egg yet but my fingers and toes are still crossed! However I did win a twitter competition with Mr Kipling Cakes
and what a cakealicious surprise I had through the post! Thanks Mr Kipling!
The brightly coloured orange box contained Lemon Whirls, St Clements Slices, Lemon Fancies and Lemon Bakewells.
As you can tell from the picture above I love the Lemon Bakewells best! They are crumbly, sweet and just scrumptious!
Mr Kipling’s current promotion on Twitter is #BetterWithCake and I have to agree with them! Life is better with Cake!
So why does cake make you feel better?
Baking all sorts of cakes, brownies and scones is very therapeutic and can help stimulate the mind. It gives you a sense of achievement when you look back at what you have created.
I love this quote from Mary Berry the ultimate Queen of Cakes: “If you’re feeling a little bit down, a bit of kneading helps,”
I would like to hear what you love to bake, and does it make you feel better?
