How to have an egg-cellent Easter!
Easter is that time of year when people enjoy eating chocolate eggs, but it is also a time to spend with the family and a great opportunity to go outside and enjoy the spring weather in Hounslow.
Around Hounslow there are a variety of Easter options to make it an egg-cellent time for all of the family and to encourage everyone to get out an egg-cercise.
Earn rewards by eggs-ercising
Earn some rewards while you are enjoying your local Easter hunt. BetterPoints is a great way to earn rewards whilst eggs-ercising with the whole family. You can download BetterPoints from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
BetterPoints is a national reward programme which tracks your physical activity and gives you points for walking, cycling and running. You can earn even more points on the One You Hounslow programme so make sure you download the Betterpoints app before going out and about in Hounslow! When you have collected enough points you can either donate the points to a charity of your choice or get vouchers to spend on the high street. The points can be used on different chains in your area, why not check it out?
So this Easter take your family out for a nice family activity and collect your points together. You can make it into a game with your children or a contest with your friends. It is a great way to spend time with your friends and family while staying active during the holiday. To find out more see here.
