But since we’re all currently isolated, the Easter bunny may not make it to every home this year (they’ll probably have to take care of their own rabbit family, too).

“So just in case, I’m wondering if you’re going to help me make an Easter egg hunt for all the kids around you?”

The prime minister also encouraged children to color in an Easter egg and place their drawing in the window of their homes instead of more traditional Easter celebrations.

Jacinda Ardern ordered a lockdown for New Zealand, although coronavirus cases have not risen to levels seen in other parts of the world.

1106 virus cases have been confirmed and only one death.

The complete message

This is a message for the children of New Zealand.

Many of you have asked me if the tooth fairy and the Easter bunny are an essential service (I was even asked at a news conference today!). I have good news, they are!

But since we’re all currently isolated, the Easter Bunny may not make it to every home this year (they’ll likely have to take care of their own rabbit family, too).

So just in case, I’m wondering if you’re going to help me make an Easter egg hunt for all the kids around you?

You can draw your own Easter egg, or you can color in the egg that some of my smart friends made. All you have to do is color it or decorate it and leave it in your window for other kids to find.

I would also like to see your designs.

If you email them to [email protected], or share them on social media with the hashtag #NZEggHunt, I’ll have a few of them appear here and on Facebook over Easter weekend.

Have fun everyone! P.S you can print a copy of this coloring sheet on my Facebook page.
