Our top Easter craft ideas offer hassle-free (with max fun) ideas for all ages to enjoy- whilst doubling-up as sweet table decorations!

DYED EASTER EGGS

For many households, dying eggs for an easter activity is on the agenda in the build-up to the big day, and with our simple instructions below (including a useful parent hack!), we crack the method to make this as hassle free as possible! Top tip – the longer you leave the eggs in the deeper your colour will come out – so feel free to egg-periment!

1- Hard-boil your eggs and let them cool
2- Half-fill a muffin tray with boiling water & 1 x teaspoon white vinegar (keep away from the little ones until cooled down)
3- Add in 10 drops of food colouring to each segment - Place the hardboiled eggs in for a few minutes
4- Use tongs to turn the eggs over and leave for another 3 x minutes
5- Decant each egg into a clean muffin tin and leave until dry

When your eggs are dry, why not try our next easter activity to display them, in the perfect Easter craft for older children!

Something to keep, and something to eat - in one fell swoop... what better way to celebrate good news or let someone know you are thinking of them?!

Hearing the 'clunk' of our choc-post letterbox gifts is the start of an amazing gift-giving gesture for our recipients, as they delve into an edible letter (hand-poured with premium Belgian chocolate nonetheless!) and enjoy your personlised note and photo.

We love seeing the diversity of messages that come through - from revealing big news and sending big birthday wishes.... through to some very big grovelling apologies! Whatever the occasion - chocolate seems to work its magic - and we are very happy to be a part of its joyful journey!



Personalised Chocolate | Morse Toad

Morse Toad takes your words, turns them into delicious chocolate, and delivers them to whoever you like. Why? Because greeting cards taste terrible. Our mission is to revolutionise how we send messages. With digital communication being fast but forgettable, and cards being thoughtful but slow and unexciting, we aim to strike a balance by providing a service that is as quick as digital, and infinitely more memorable and delicious than a card.
