Easter is a lovely time of year for families. The sun starts to peek out, daffodils are budding and there’s optimism in the air. And the best part? Lots of chocolate!

To help you make the most of the celebrations, we’ve found some of the best chocolate Easter egg making kits for you to do with (or without!) the kids.

Not only can it be great fun to make your own Easter egg, it also means less mass-produced eggs to buy at the supermarket.

Plus, some of the sets and moulds we’ve found can be reused year after year, so you can cut down on surplus packaging and waste - all while helping keep little ones entertained.

We’ve also put together a useful guide on how to make your own chocolate Easter egg using moulds, which may come in handy once you've bought your kit. Or, for a more traditional activity, take a look at how to make painted Easter eggs.

If chocolate is not for you take a look at our best non-chocolate Easter gifts.
