These 3 will be awarded either a gold, silver or bronze medal and 1 of 3 Easter eggs. It’s every participant for themselves! Good luck to you all! Each group will have 30 minutes to find their 6 chocolate eggs each.
The decorating: The same groups will then decorate a boiled egg each with the tools provided. The best decorated (decorated in the allocated 20 minutes*) 3 of each group will win either a 1st, 2nd or 3rd medal and a chocolate Easter egg. They will be judged on looks, originality and how tough they are! May the best eggs win! *Those that don’t finish in the 20 minutes will be disqualified.
