With the arrival of the school holidays and a certain bunny, Easter is always a popular time with children. Keep your little ones entertained with easy-peasy recipes for cupcakes and cookies, and for hours of fun, get your crayons ready for some egg decorating. Or why not host an Easter egg hunt? As well as being super exciting, it's a great way to keep the little ones happy.

Egg decorating is a great way to get into the Easter spirit. Dye your eggs with food colouring added to the water when hard-boiling them. Before dyeing, clean the eggs with white vinegar to help the shell absorb the dye. If you want to play with patterns, use a white crayon as the wax will block the dye. Alternatively, decorate plain-dyed eggs with glitter, sequins and ribbon. (Don’t eat the eggs after they’ve been dyed.)
You can also use washed raw eggs. Use a needle to make a small hole in the narrow end and a slightly larger hole at the other. Wriggle round the needle to break the yolk’s membrane, blow through the small hole to empty the egg, then decorate with glitter, sequins and ribbon.
