Four Fun & Delicious Activities for Easter

When the Easter bunny starts to appear in our stores, Easter is inevitably just around the corner! With fewer restrictions on social distancing this year, we're fully enjoying the sweet and tasty activities associated with this holiday. Easter egg hunts, chocolates, homemade chocolate and sugar shacks are our top choices to celebrate Easter 2022!


For as long as anyone can remember, egg hunts have been a favourite activity at Easter. Follow the orthodox tradition by decorating the eggs with watercolour paint. This way, everyone in the family can take part! At Griffon, you can get a painting kit for under $25! For the sweet version of the egg hunt, choose chocolate eggs.


It’s the perfect opportunity to indulge in sweet treats without feeling guilty. A natural pick-me-up, cocoa comes in all kinds of shapes and colours. This Easter, make the most of it by supporting local businesses that offer exclusive Easter-themed collections.
