    Fun Springtime Kid Friendly Activities for Easter!

    We're all looking forward to some warm spring weather this Easter! After two years spent finding new activities for your kids to do at home, we've all run low on our creativity. Luckily for you, we've come up with a few sweet activities that'll keep them engaged this Easter!

    Beyond hunting for eggs, here's some fun ideas for sparking your kids' imagination and creativity this spring!

    Grow some Candy Carrots with The Sugar Cube!

    If your kids are a fan of Elf on the Shelf, they will love some extra magic around Easter! This is a fun activity that's very easy to throw together. An exercise in gardening, science, and imagination!

    Simply bury some carrot scraps and sugar together in a pot of soil. Water generously and leave overnight. When your kids come downstairs in the morning, they'll be surprised to see that some candy carrots have grown!

    Do some crafting with Hip Hooray Studios!

    Hip Hooray Studio's Original Create Kit is a box full of hand curated papers and craft supply treasures that will make any young artist sing for joy.

    This kit is tremendous for confident and more independent creators (those who prefer to make from their own imaginings) as well as creators who are beginning to learn to think outside the box and create more independently.

    Each original create kit comes with a beautiful collection of colourful and patterned papers, illustrated stickers and a colouring in sheet, glitter, yarn and ribbons, as well as all kinds of other wonderful bits and bobs that will inspire and ignite creativity.

    Do some sweet colouring with Cray Cray Crayons, The Oak Village, and The Sugar Cube

    This limited edition Easter Basket includes an Easter Cotton Candy tub and other sweets from The Sugar Cube with the extra fun of a personalized colouring sheet from The Oak Village and Easter themed crayons from Cray Cray Crayons!

    We think it's a great combo that will satisfy their sweet tooth but also keep them engaged in a quiet activity, leaving you free to relax and enjoy the long weekend!

    Three Events Made for a Blind Candy Tasting!

    Blind Candy Tasting with Sugar Cube YYC

    At The Sugar Cube, we're always tasting and trying candy from all over the globe. Now we want to bring some of that fun to you with our Blind Candy Tasting Package! Designed to do at home on your own, 

    Each Tasting Package comes with ten candies for your guests to sample and guess the names and flavour profiles of each sweet. We've provided enough candy, sample sheets, and take home bags for 10 guests. Also included is an answer sheet (sealed in an envelope so the host can participate as well) and a rainbow Regular CandyGram for the person who guesses the most correct!

    Overall, this option works out to about $10 per person and you get a fun activity AND take home favours out of it! Need some inspiration for when to do this? We've included three occasions that are perfect for a Blind Candy Tasting!

    Birthday Parties

    Kids Birthday Party Favours

    If you're celebrating a special milestone or birthday with a small group of people, this could make a really fun activity that will get you guessing, quibbling, and laughing at everyone else's guesses. Perfect for adults looking to expand their candy palette but we also have a kids' version that doesn't contain any spicy or liquor infused flavours!

    Work Events

     Team Building Activity

    Looking for a fun way to mix up your work socials? A Blind Candy Tasting Party is a great alternative to patio beers or museum tour. This is an activity that could realistically be done within 30-45 minutes, leaving lots of time to chat about that new client project coming up!

    Bachelorette Bashes

    Bachelorette Party Activity Ideas

    Such a fun activity to do with the girls if you're staying in OR need a pregame activity before you hit the town! Put your own twist on the tasting by asking your guests to compare each candy to a celebrity hottie.
