The weather looks as if it’s going to stay warm this weekend in the South East so if you’re near the capital and looking for inspiration for something to do with the kids, then joining in with the Fabergé Big Egg Hunt is well worth considering.
I had heard a little bit about it before we went to London last week. In a nutshell (or should that be eggshell?) there are 200 beautiful, individually-designed egg sculptures hidden across London in 12 special egg zones. You can hunt for the eggs by downloading the zone maps, then just text the keyword on each plinth and you could win The Diamond Jubilee Egg worth £100,000. The more eggs you see, the better your chances of winning. The Egg hunt will raise money for Elephant Family and Action for Children. It continues until Easter weekend and there is also an online auction where you can bid for the eggs.
If we hadn’t already planned our days’ activities, this would have been a fantastic way to see the city. I know Rory would have loved this when he was younger: treasure hunts and ticking things off lists were always a great way to add excitement to an attraction.
I only thought to take two photos of the eggs, even though I saw plenty on our walks. Did I think to text the keywords for a chance of winning?….No. Might have to bid for one instead: would look good at the bottom of the garden.
The two large photos were eggs I spotted myself. The other little images are from the Big Egg Hunt’s website.
