In celebration of the National Trust’s ‘eggsplorer’ theme, for its annual Easter Egg Trail, Cadbury has immortalised the nation’s favourite explorers in chocolate. These five explorers have been chosen by children and have been superimposed on Cadbury’s Eggheads. When asked what made the perfect explorer, a fifth (22%) of the children thought said they needed to be ‘really cool’, while others said that they would need to be ‘brave’ (51%) or ‘curious’ (29%). Their five favourite explorers of all time are:
- Bear Grylls (24%)
- Sir David Attenborough (17%)
- Christopher Columbus (12%)
- Helen Skelton (9%)
- Ant & Dec (6%)
This Easter is the seventh year that Cadbury are supporting the National Trust and National Trust for Scotland. Together they will be hosting the 2014 Easter Egg Trails, something which promises to be a great day out for all the family!
Over the Easter weekend families will be able to take part in the annual Cadbury Easter Egg Trails with the National Trust. This event will be held in over 260 British locations. From spring woodlands and coastal trails to historic homes and castles. Each explorer will be given a kit when they take part, this will include a trail journal, map, passport and explorer hat. Once the explorers have completed the trail they will receive a Cadbury Egghead! What’s more, every single Cadbury Easter Egg Trail will help support the National Trust’s work, meaning all the lovely places will be looked after so that they can be enjoyed by everyone for a long time to come.
There will be trails at over 300 locations across the UK,click here to find an Eggspedition near you and get the date put in your diary.
At the trail, Eggsplorers will receive a make-it-yourself pith helmet, a Trail Journal containing all the clues they need to complete the trail and an Eggsplorer Passport to be stamped along the way, and on completing the trail they will be rewarded with a delicious Cadbury Egghead.
Kids can get creative and enter the Design Your Own Egghead Competition where the winning design will be printed onto Cadbury Eggheads in 2015.
Why not take a photo of your family on a trail this Easter and transform it with the Eggsplorer Scrapbook. If you share your picture you will have the chance to win a family cottage break.
