Big Fat Balloons are helping parents to give their children a healthier Easter this year. The online balloons and gifts shop has put together a list of alternative Easter gifts for parents who want to cut down on the number of chocolate Easter eggs their children receive.
"Buying Easter eggs is a popular tradition yet with the current concerns over health, it might be sensible to limit the number of Easter eggs children receive. Our alternative Easter gift guide offers a variety of gift ideas that children will love too,” said Sophie Baxter, managing director, Big Fat Balloons.
“We’re not suggesting that parents should ban Easter eggs altogether, after all Easter wouldn’t be the same. But some children receive so many Easter eggs from family and friends that they don’t know what to do with them all,” Sophie added.
The Big Fat Balloons’ guide to alternative Easter gifts also includes gifts for babies and young children such as a range of Easter balloons, that will keep everyone amused for hours. Cuddly Bunny soft toys are also popular with children.
“If the Easter gift is fun and entertaining, you can be sure it will be a hit with children. For example, we’re discovering that girls of all ages adore our Bunny Ears headbands,” said Sophie.
Easter treats that involve the whole family also feature on the Big Fat Balloons list. A family trip to the cinema that includes a special lunch or a shopping trip for a new summer outfit are all suggestions to not only treat the kids but also keep them occupied during the school Easter holidays.
Other ideas to keep children amused include board games and craft gifts, all of which will keep them away from the TV and entertained on rainy days.
For Easter gifts on a budget, Big Fat Balloons has even more ideas. Encouraging kids to bake traditional Easter goodies like Simnel cake or hot cross buns can help cut costs. Meanwhile, making their own Easter cards for aunts, uncles and grandparents, not only helps with the finances, but also keeps the kids busy for hours and relatives will appreciate the effort.
