Easter Reading Activity: Easter Chocolate Bark

Late last year I ‘stole’ Ang’s chocolate bark recipe when I saw her and her mum talking about it on Facebook and begged for it. Don’t you just love butting in on a Facebook conversation?

Easter Egg Bark

The bark was a big hit, so now I’m doing ‘Easter Bark’. Pale colours seemed somehow more Easter like, so we went with white chocolate and pastels marshmallows, but really you could do anything you liked. The marshmallows have made it a bit more rocky road than bark…but ‘chocolate bark’ sounds so much cooler.  I did some in Easter egg shapes after I saw this great post which has done this far better than far nicer pictures than my post!

Ingredients

Cooking a great reading and maths activity as we’ve spoken about before here. Child friendly printable instructions are also a purposeful reading activity so there are some simple and printable instructions here: White Chocolate Easter Eggs

Enjoy!

For Easter book gift suggestions, my list of favourite Easter books are here.

Holidays are also a great time to stock the freezer with lunchbox biscuits, and this recipe is an easy one for children to help out with.

Other holidays activities you might like to try include gumnut babies, story stones, walnut babies, a spot of gardening with children, or creating your own fairy garden or land of the dinosaurs.

If you are off on an interesting holiday adventure, a holiday journal is a perfect and portable way to keep children entertained and doing a bit of purposeful reading and writing.
