At this time of year it's hard to know if the Easter bunny will need wellies or a sun hat when he comes to deliver his chocolaty treats. On the off chance that it might be too wet, windy or cold to spend all of the school holidays outside (odds are you'll be spending some of your time indoors!) it's great to have some craft activities on hand to entertain the children for the bank holiday and beyond.
Oh Easter treeKids always have a whale of a time decorating the tree at Christmas, which might be one of the reasons you can increasingly find sparkly eggs dangling from branches these days. I got my 'tree' from Lidl and my girls were more than eager to adorn it with treasures from Easer baskets past, pretty stickers and their newly-created decorations courtesy of Yellow Moon. And an Easter 'tree' makes a lovely centrepiece!
My youngest has recently discovered sewing in a big way - due in part to a very impressive after-school club she attends. I've already been on the receiving end of a fetching 'LOVE' banner on Valentine's and a beautiful lavender-scented cushion for Mother's Day. Accordingly she was keen to get to work on the Easter Bunny Sewing Decoration Kits - making one up for Granny - her personal sewing and knitting guru. Meanwhile my older daughter set about the Easter Basket Ribbon Lacing Cards for her nearest and dearest.
