    the big egg hunt

    April 5, 2012

    Many of you might have already heard of ‘the big egg hunt‘ that has been ‘hatched’ by elephant family and action for children for a record-breaking egg hunt across central london to raise money for these two causes. 210 uniquely crafted eggs, created by leading artists, designers, architects and jewellers have been hidden in 12 zones across the capital for over six weeks now. Annie from insideology found quite a few and kept us in the loop.

    The egg hunt began on 21th february. 30 spectacular eggs were auctioned in a live auction on 20 march raising £667.000 for both charities. The rest of the eggs are being auctioned as you read this and bidding will close at 6pm on monday 9th april.

    Earlier this week all eggs were collected and brought to covent garden piazza for the grand extravaganza on the easter weekend. In the spirit of things I zoomed down and braved the huge crowds to bring you some first hand pictures of some of my favourite egg designs.

    The place was heaving with 100’s of people, all clicking away trying to capture their visit to covent garden and london. Most were running around with their i-spy-eggs guide trying to find and tick off as many eggs as possible. I tried my best to get some decent pictures but it was hard work. If you have kids and are in london over easter, go and have a look. Your kids will love you for it and it’s an egg hunt after all.

    Which one is your favourite?

    I wish you all a very happy easter weekend.
