Easter Crafts

Yesterday was the 1st day of the Easter holiday and whilst some parents may be dreading it, I'm really looking forward to spending time with both my daughters. Weekends never seem long enough anymore with swimming and ballet lessons along with the chore of homework and reading.

I always like to plan and be organised when it comes to the school holidays, as it gives me a plan of what to do with the girls. If I didn't plan, the holiday would be over and I would be left feeling as though we hadn't really done anything apart from just stay at home and play.

In the sales last year I managed to pick up some really cheap Easter craft packs, and because yesterday I needed to stay at home and wait for a parcel to be delivered, I decided it was a good opportunity to do some Easter crafts. Ruby and Lottie both love taking part in craft activities, since Lottie started playschool she is always asking to paint and draw, she is very different to Ruby, as it took a lot of persuading to encourage Ruby to undertake craft activities; but now I can't stop her, she even chooses to attend an art club during her lunchtime at school.

We made some Easter masks; Lottie opted for a chick mask and Ruby a bunny. 

We also made an Easter basket and briefly filled it up with chocolate, until several chocolates ended up in two little girls stomachs!

Last week at school Ruby made an Easter card which is proudly displayed on the lounge sideboard. She also had lots of fun decorating a hard boiled egg and an Easter bonnet. 

I'd love to hear what Easter cars are taking place in your home.
