Easter is that time when children and adults love to indulge in chocolate. You name it those eggs are all around us. They come in different sizes – large, small, colourful or plain, dark or milk chocolate. But is it the worst time to eat chocolate? It’s probably the only time to get children to go on an Easter egg hunt.
Get a few eggs from the Supermarket or Pound shop and plant them around your home, garden or an area in your local park (if the weather is favourable). Leave a few clues then get children to sing some rhymes as they search for the eggs.
They need to know that the eggs are theirs to keep once they’ve made a discovery and that they will also be given a prize.
On the other hand, the the downside to dishing out eggs are:
- Small Easter eggs can be a chocking hazard for young children.
- Pets might react to chocolate.
- There’s a risk of over-indulging.
- Some eggs contain nuts.
- Not everyone can afford exquisite eggs.
Is Easter the worst time to eat chocolate? Maybe but most of all let’s not forget the true meaning of the season! Here’s an Easter Poem to inspire you:
An Easter Poem
Doubt sees the obstacle,
Faith sees the way;
Doubt sees the blackest night
Faith sees the day;
Doubt dreads to take a step,
Faith soars on high;
Doubt questions, “Who believes?
Faith answers “I!”
