2) Whilst the bodies are drying, cut small triangles out of the red paper for the mouth. Once the bodies are dried, glue on the mouth and googly eyes. Stick the feather to the back with the glue.

Chocolate Nests

Chocolate Nests

These are super easy to make and are a great Easter treat. We filled ours with little chickens, but you could fill them with chocolate eggs or raspberries.

Ingredients

200g milk chocolate, 85g shredded wheat (crushed), 1 tbsp golden syrup, cupcake cases, decorative chickens (Hobby craft). 

Method

1) Melt the chocolate and golden syrup in a small bowl placed over a pan of simmering water.

2) Pour the chocolate mixture over the shredded wheat and stir well to combine.

3) Spoon the chocolate wheat into 12 cupcake cases and press the back of a teaspoon in the centre to create a nest shape.

4) Chill the nests in the fridge for 2 hrs until set.

Hide the cake

This is a great game as it's really quick to set up. We use the girls toy cake as it's a good size and you can hide all the pieces (hence the name!). Both girls love playing this (3 years old and 22 months).

1) Get the kids to close their eyes (no peeking!).

2) Hide a few small objects around the room.

3) Get them to find them.

A super quick and easy activity!
