Virtual Easter Egg Hunt

We are running another ‘Virtual Easter Egg Hunt’ this year to share some Easter cheer, without the need to travel too far, in association with Active Essex.

You can use our colouring and design template to create your own egg-citing Easter egg and share it in your window ready to be spotted by families. When you are out walking, keep your eyes peeled and spot the eggs on display in people's windows.

You can download your template here.

Or get creative and design your own - draw or paint an egg, use chalks in your driveway and share your creations in your window or front garden for all your neighbours to appreciate.

Make sure to take a photo or video of your creation and upload it to Facebook and Instagram for us to see. Tag @exploressex and @activeessex and use the hashtags #EssexEggHunt #EasterEggHunt

Make sure you are aware of the latest government guidelines and social distancing for when you're out and about here.
