Jacinda Ardern encourages Kiwis to get crafty with paper Easter eggs in home windows

For many Kiwi kids (and kids around the world), Easter is going to be a little big different this year.

Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, Easter eggs have been hard to source - but Primie Minister Jacinda Ardern has another idea for how Kiwi families can get involved in Easter in a more 'physically distant' way than usual.

"This is a message for the kids of New Zealand." the PM wrote on Facebook.

"I’ve been asked by lots of you whether the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny are an essential service (I even got asked in a press conference today!) I have good news, they are! But because we’re all in isolation at the moment, the Easter Bunny might not make it to every house this year (they probably have to look after their own Bunny family too). So just in case, I’m wondering if you’ll help me create an Easter egg hunt for all the children in your neighbourhood?"

Seemingly taking inspiration from the NZ Bear Hunt, here's what the PM proposed...

"You can draw your own Easter egg, or you can colour in the one that some of my clever friends helped to make. All you have to do is colour it in or decorate it, and pop it in your window for other kids to find. I'd also love to see your designs."

This could be a great way to keep the kids entertained for a few hours over the next few days.
