Easter is nearly here again, and we know it means a chocolate blow-out for the kids, and maybe for us too.
Cadbury expects to sell 270 million chocolate eggs, and Coles supermarket predict around 6 million chocolate eggs and bunnies will fly out their doors. That's a spend of $157 million and equates to to a family size block of chocolate for every man woman and child in the country.
So we've come up with a few ways to offset that indulgence using scooters of course!
1. Bunny spotting
Before the hunt, tell the kids you're sure you saw the Easter Bunny in the park, wherever you want them scoot to - tell them he was going pretty fast so they'll need their scooters. Then take them out on a little mission to find him, ending up back at the house again where - oh my gosh - he's hidden the Easter Eggs :)
2. Make your Easter Egg Hunt a Scooting Hunt
Hide your eggs really well, and use clues that keep the kids scooting from one end of the garden to the other.
3. Make a Progressive Easter hunt party
We love this idea....Enlist 3 or 4 friends that live within scooting distance to help make a progressive Easter Egg Hunt party. Have eggs hidden at each house, and get the kids to scoot to between houses ending up at yours for an awesome and easy Easter lunch. How to make lunch easy? Everyone brings a dish of course!
4. Scoot off that chocolate
After the indulgence keep the day car free and go to the park for a scooter marathon or a big game of scooter tag.
Get a scooter for yourself and make the kids' day by scooting the whole thing with them. Not only will they love you for it but you'll also be able to give yourself parenting brownie points for being a healthy role model.
Scooting burns more calories than walking or cycling, and is an excellent lower body workout so it's big wins all round.
