Fancy this end of term brain-teaser?

Posted April 18th, 2019

It's time to give your grey matter a bit of a workout with our Easter crossword, but do make sure you're loafing comfortably first!

Put your Easter knowledge to the test and we'll share the answers on our blog on 23rd April.

For an extra challenge, create a THREE WORD PHRASE that uses ALL of the letters in the grey-shaded boxes. Hint: unintended consequence of overdosing on Easter Eggs.

If you feel like showing off you can share your genius on our Facebook page or Twitter feed using #GreyMatter.

Happy Easter to you and your family!

Love,
