Easter in Kent.
With Easter not too far away. Some parents are in a panic about what to do with the children during midterm, let’s not forget the most important part of Easter and what it’s really about… A super-long bank holiday weekend!! In the hope that the weather will hold up, here’s some ideas on how you can spend your long weekend this Easter.
Easter Egg Hunt
An Easter weekend can not be complete without an Easter egg hunt. It is a fantastic and fun activity to keep the children occupied. Throughout Kent practically everywhere have egg hunts, from the castles (Leeds, Dover etc) to the activity parks (Dreamland, Kent Life etc). Check out your local area and get hunting for the delicious treats.
If you’re considering throwing a party over the bank holiday, then an Easter Egg hunt (for adults) could be on the cards. Make the adults hunt for their refreshments and add to the fun of the weekend!
Easter is not complete without the food! From hot cross buns to the traditional roast lamb, it’s certainly as much of an eating occasion as Christmas. Also, let’s not forget all the chocolate that’s consumed and with the chocolate egg market worth a whopping £200 million in the UK, it’s a lot of chocolatey goodness that’s devoured annually.
Finally onto… the Easter Egg!
It was first produced in 1873 by Fry’s however, unlike the eggs of today; it was solid. Hhmmm feeling a bit cheated with our hollow eggs…
The most expensive egg that is made is £25,000 from Choccywoccydoodah and weighs 100kg. You must really need to have a sweet tooth to eat this egg and with a unique design inspired by Russian Tsars, this egg screams luxury.
Of course it’s not Easter without the famous cadbury’s creme egg and there are 500 million of the delicious treat made every year in the UK. How do you eat yours?
Not a fan of chocolate or allergic? The alternative is the Lakridis liquorice egg, made with sea salt-coated liquorice. Not to everyone’s taste but a unique change from the usual eggs.
