Positivity Easter Egg Hunt!

Easter is approaching meaning that many of us have a long weekend off, the sun is shining…and we’re stuck in quarantine.

This is a difficult time for everyone, but in particular those with mental health issues. That’s why I’ve created the Positivity Easter Egg Hunt to try and make the days ahead a little less painful.

To make your own version of this egg hunt, you will need:

  • A sheet of plain A4 paper.
  • Scissors.
  • Pencil.
  • Pen.
  • Ruler.
  • Crayons/felt-tip pens.
  • A bangin’ playlist.

Once you have everything you need, it’s time to get started!

  1. Put on that playlist and turn it up.
  2. Using a pencil and ruler, divide the sheet of A4 paper into 24 small squares (portrait: 4 columns x 6 rows). It doesn’t have to be perfect!
  3. Cut along the lines.A stack of plain white squares.
  4. Write a short, positive statement on each square. The more personal they are, the better!3 squares with positive statements written on them next to a black biro pen.
  5. Turn the squares over, and draw patterned eggs on each one. Big, bold patterns will look especially good.3 squared with patterned eggs drawn on them.
  6. Colour the eggs in.The eggs coloured in brightly, ready to be hidden around the house!
  7. Now for the tricky part; hiding the eggs without your family noticing! Try to wait until they’re distracted with a task, having a bath, or have gone out briefly. Do you want your family to naturally find the eggs as they go about their daily tasks, or do you want them to actively hunt for them?
  8. For additional effect, if you choose to make your family actively look for the eggs, play the Benny Hill theme while they search.

It won’t keep your family occupied for the whole weekend, but hopefully it will help keep up spirits during this difficult time.

Happy Easter!
