School holidays are a fun time for nannies and their kids. For me, the concept of not having a hard daily schedule locked in pretty much screams freedom. You’re telling me we could spend all day at the zoo and not have to fight traffic to get across town for 3pm? Yes!
For the kids, school holidays are just like, the best time ever. Between day trips, playdates, sleepovers, cubby houses, activity camps, baking and brightly coloured crafts, the possibilities are endless! Combine school holidays with a seasonal event like Easter and it’s a sugar-hyped feast of scavenger hunts, brightly coloured crafts and chocolatey goodies.
The possible downside is that often school holidays mean that with all the kids under the one roof, grocery lists are doubled and shopping trips are lengthy. If your kids are anything like mine, the only time I can convince them that running errands is a good idea is if they’re allowed to purchase a new beanie boo with their pocket money or if a grocery store scavenger hunt is created.
So if you’re hauling kids around the shops these Easter school holidays, pop into a Toys “R” Us as a special treat for the kids.
Now I know Easter is kind of all wrapped up and done for the year (or should that be unwrapped), but there’s still a fun Easter egg scavenger hunt happening for the kids. Looking for some entertainment these school holidays? Toys “R” Us have got you sorted. The Toys “R” Us TRUMagic Easter Hunt is a game available free on the app store.
Toys “R” Us Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt Game
The campaign is designed to bring some modern day magic into Easter using the latest cutting edge technology. The game allows the player to interact with Toys “R” Us mascot Geoffrey the Giraffe and his Easter bunny friends, leading them on a virtual adventure through Toys “R” Us stores to find Geoffrey’s Playground and receive a free Easter treat.
Here’s How It Works:
1. Download the free Toys “R” TRUMagic app from the Apple Store or the Google Play store and activate it.
2. Head to your local Toys “R” Us store, open the app and hunt for one of the Easter eggs hidden around the store. Once you find it, point your device at it to meet your new Easter friends.
3. Follow the bunny paw prints all the way to Geoffrey’s playground.
4. Watch Geoffrey and the bunnies as they do a surprise welcome at the playground. You can even record yourself joining in!
5. Claim your free treat from the nearby Toys “R” Us team member at Geoffrey’s Playground.
Enjoy the school holidays kiddies!
