Walking past our garden to day, I noticed the snow is quickly receding, tiny green heads are popping up and signs that the Easter Bunny’s scouts (aka bunny droppings) have been visiting! With Easter less then a month away, it isn’t surprising to find signs of Easter everywhere!
What are your Easter traditions?
To celebrate Easter, the Egg Farmers of Ontario like to inspiring Ontarians with a game called the THE EGGS FACTOR! Artists of all ages can express their artistic talent at eggsfactor.ca by pariticpating in an online egg decorating competition for the chance to amazing WIN prizes! Two lucky winners will then be selected from each of the six age categories to win an iPad® mini. Not only is this a fun tradition to share with your children, but it is also a teaching experience about helping others. For every valid entry to the Eggs Factor contest, Egg Farmers of Ontario will donate one dozen eggs to school nutrition programs.
