NEWS: March/April issue - OUT NOW!

03 March 2019

Yay, our March/April 2019 issue hits the streets today, and how A D O R A B L E is the poppet on the cover?!

As it's March, that means it's almost time for Easter!

If I had to choose my favourite celebration, Easter would win every time. I adored the Easter Bunny as a child. I always believed he would give the most amazing furry cuddles, and the mischief of hiding chocolate eggs around the house was far more appealing than Santa’s stockings (plus the big red man kinda scared me a little!). The Easter Bunny also took the time to leave us a handwritten letter each year telling us what colour eggs were ours to collect (a clever way to stop my older siblings grabbing them all first, thank you Mr Bunny!).

Even as an adult, he’s still my favourite holiday hero. Why?

  1. Because he doesn’t live in the North Pole (brrrr… too cold for me!)
  2. There’s no requests, letters or decisions. 
Just one product – chocolate eggs for everyone. That’s my kind of shopping list.
  3. He’s cute, fluffy yet a bit of an enigma. 
Who knows what he really looks like?
  4. He doesn’t just drop and run, he makes it into 
a fun game before he hops on out.
  5. I love treasure hunts!
  6. Did I already mention the chocolate?

March also holds a special place for the 
Kids on the Coast/Kids in the City team as it’s our birthday! 
And 2019 is a big one as we turn 15 (wow)!

Since joining the team many years ago, and then taking ownership several years ago, these fab magazines are my third baby, where I live, breathe and (rarely) sleep everything that is 
Kids on the Coast/Kids in the City. Every milestone we achieve, every comment we receive, I’m one very proud mama bear.

So, a huge thank you to our amazing advertisers, whose support allows us to continue to produce. And a huge thanks to 
our fabulous readers, for liking, sharing, chatting and being an essential part of the 

Kids on the Coast/Kids in the City community.

As well as celebrating our birthday, this issue we head south to Byron Bay to get the low-down on enjoying a family-friendly, budget-friendly weekend in Northern NSW. We also delve into the digital world to chat 
to the experts about keeping kids safe online.

And of course, with all the latest news, events, education stories, local interviews 
and more, it’s another bumper issue made with love and fuelled by (way too many) chocolate eggs.

Hoppy Easter!
