A little premature perhaps, however for all the busy mums I thought that I would write some suggestions of ideas for easter. One of my resolutions this year is to be organised. Being pregnant is helping as I have the nesting bug. Here are some of the things we did last year for easter.
Please share your ideas in the comments
A little easter garden
we used egg shells filled with soil and sprout seeds
We should have really started this a little earlier than we did, so that it was really 'grassy'.
The easter bunny/ hare is then able to come and chew down the grass on easter morning and leave a little treasure and a big mess of grass! Thanks Maree for this lovely suggestion.
Little felt easter bunnies
these are one of my favourites.
They make a special little gift for your child ....tucked up inside a little basket with perhaps a chocolate egg or two or homemade chocolate.....
I have some kits for mini bunnies similar to these I made last year in my shop, here.
Beeswax candle making
...this is always lots of fun
Egg shell candles
I am thinking this year we will experiment with painting the eggs. I think there is a technique with wax and then dyes......anyone tried it?
Little bunny rabbit finger puppets
Wool Felt Chicks
and these gorgeous little felted easter chicks
Here are my attempts......I have to say this was a lot of fun and oh so sweet!
and here is a chick of my own...more of a little red hen don't you think?
I have drawn the pattern based on a little chick I bought some time ago and inspired by our own little chooks.
