Easter is a time for giving, a time for receiving and a time for indulging! It is a time when many children are immersed in arts and crafts of all kinds. There are hat parades, pastel colours, chocolate wrappers and all sorts of weird and wonderful experiences going on. It is a naturally energetic and creative time.
Over the past few weeks our Brand Ambassador, Olivia from A Crafty LIVing, has been using our resources to create some of the most vibrant and engaging educational experiences we have ever seen. One of our favourites so far has been the "Exploring reflection with Wet Chalk Drawing on a rainy day".
Parents and educators are encouraged to focus on alternatives to chocolate this Easter to help children live a healthy life, as statistics show more Australian children are overweight or obese than ever before. Julie Gilbert, Accredited Practising Dietitian and proprietor of Brisbane based Solutions with Food provides some practical advice and top tips for Easter.
