Growing Bookworms – Sir Chocolate Saves Easter #SirChocolateStory #Childrensfiction

Easter is around the corner and it is a time for spending time with family. If you are Christian, it is also an important religious holiday. I thought it would be nice to share a Sir Chocolate story with you today. It’s called Sir Chocolate Saves Easter and you can download it as a PDF here:

Fun Easter activity

Painting Easter eggs with food colouring is great fun. I used the white candy coated ‘hens’ eggs for this activity and liquid food colouring. Be careful to use aprons as the food colouring stains. Here are the Easter eggs some of the children in my Sunday School painted a few years ago.

    Hi Robbie,

    Your story is adorable and delightful, and I love all the characters. I’m a baker also just like my mom, but your skills (and patience) are incredible. Painting and decorating Easter eggs evokes precious memories of when my children were little, too. Happy Easter to you and your family.

    • Hi Lauren, I have this vague hope that by sharing my stories and ideas to entertain kids the old fashioned way, things like making paper chains and painting Easter eggs will be remembered for the next generation to enjoy. Happy Easter to you. PS, I’ve set up a Twitter blitz for our poetry book and I’ve also added it to an All Author promotion so if you happen to see the tweets, do share.

    What an adorable story and, as always, I’m drooling over the chocolate. I’ve never tried food coloring with eggs (only the dye kits), but the colors look so vibrant!

  12. An adorable story, Robbie, and a fun egg painting project in your Sunday School classroom. I haven’t painted with food coloring. I haven’t heard of candy-coated eggs, are they real eggs or just candy?

    • Hi Diana, I am glad you enjoyed this little story. I saw that you painted real egg shells as a girl. There is a tradition of painting ostrich eggs here in South Africa. Of course, ostrich eggs are 30 times bigger than hens eggs so they are quite a big canvas. These eggs look just like hens but they are chocolate inside and coated with white candy on the outside.
