This Easter, Aussie families can bring the magic of the Sydney Royal Easter Show into their homes and replicate some of the popular activities held at the annual event. Chicane Showbags, who are known for creating the much anticipated showbags including Nestlé’s Allen’s, Bertie Beetle, Milkybar and KitKat bags, has created a ‘DIY guide’ to show Aussies how they can recreate their very own Easter Show without having to leave the house.
Director of Chicane Showbags, Emily Williams, said: “We know that the show is something everyone looks forward to each year, and we ourselves have also been planning this for many months. While Aussies can’t physically go to the show, the good news is that they can bring the festivities indoors. Thanks to the ongoing partnership that we have with Nestlé and the Royal Easter Show, we can now deliver a few things to help make it happen.”
With showbags being one of the favourite traditions at the show, Aussies will be pleased to know that the Allen’s, KitKat, Milkybar and Bertie Beetle showbags can be delivered to their homes. Each bag has a lot to offer, with:
· Allen’s giving fans a taste of the favourites with the Party Mix, Snakes Alive, Strawberries and Cream and Frogs Alive all packed in the one bag.
· KitKat providing chocolate lovers with the option to indulge a little with the junior bag or go all in with the KitKat showbag including a special edition of KitKat Gold and Cookies and Cream.
· Lovers of white chocolate can enjoy the Milkybar showbag which includes all the classic bars includes more than 10 classic bars, the Smarties edition and some bonus Bertie Beetles for good measure!
· When it comes to Bertie Beetle, Aussies are spoiled for choice, and can pick showbags which include a range of 80 – 350 Bertie Beetle chocolates with a limited-edition Bertie Beetle Retro Tin or Camping Mug set or socks.
Once Aussies have received the order of their showbag delivery, families can turn the living room into a Showbag Arena and unpack some of these delicious treats with the family. By rearranging couches and chairs in the house, lining them all up next to each other and hanging a showbag off the front, families can create their own stalls and take a walk through the ‘arena’ to pick out some favourites.
To continue the Easter show fun throughout the day, families can teach their household pups how to ‘sit pretty’ and give ‘heart-warming hugs’. Once the showbags arrive, turn the front yard into the stage for the Sydney Royal Dog Show and join friends and family on a video call to share all the tricks the new pup has learnt. To create a podium, find three sturdy boxes of different sizes from around the house which your dog has comfortably sat on before, and cover them individually with table clothes. Using any previous school athletic carnival ribbons around the house, create first, second and third place to add that award-winning feeling.
When it hits lunch time, families can prepare a meal with any food they already have in the house but pop it onto the end of chopsticks to bring to life the novelty of Cheese or Hotdog on a Stick to their home. To create the famous hot dog on a stick in particular, parents can follow this recipe for some guidance and have it ready within 30 mins.
Now that the household pet is trained, move onto the kids! By setting up a series of household chores for the children to complete, families can create a Young Farmer Challenge with kids being challenged to prove their ability of completing the chores the fastest all while wearing a cowboy hat or boots. YouTube Channel Common Sense has a guide on how to create a paper version at home.
Once the kids are all tired out from ‘a big day at the show’, adults can indulge in their own favourite traditions and taste-test a variety of beverages, creating their very own Royal Beer & Cider Show. Transform the kitchen bench into a blind taste test, placing bottles in brown paper bags labelled one to five and create a vote sheet so by the end of the night the ‘judges’ have settled the debate for the best tasting drink.
