Happy Easter!

Maybe I’m a bit of a wet blanket when it comes to Easter but there is no Easter bunny delivery in this household. Yes the kids get Easter eggs (not from us I hasten to add; that’s what grandparents are for!) but I have not even tried to pretend that there is an Easter bunny and the usually inquisitive 4 year old hasn’t asked any awkward questions. I am prepared to keep the magic of Santa Claus alive for a little while longer so it’s not all bar humbug in this household.

Anyway, in the lead up to the holidays, the kids have been busy with some Easter craft activities. Ava’s Easter bonnet was thanks to a lazy Sunday at our friends recently. It’s creation was inspired by the following You Tube video – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFwCkoai5T8 It took a lot of self discipline on my part not to try and direct its creation. I would say less is more but try telling that to a 4 year old!

Benjamin’s Easter chick was made at Toddler group . Our toddler group craft team are a very talented bunch!

And no Easter would be complete without a couple of home decorated Easter eggs. I found the following website invaluable for reminding me how to blow out the eggs – http://www.wikihow.com/Blow-Out-Eggs A plaster is a must when piercing the holes on the eggs!

Who says you can’t buy a boy flowers for Valentine’s Day?

Valentine's Day

Okay so I cheated a little but I think the ‘boy’ in question was quite impressed with this little Valentine’s offering. Unfortunately for him and as politely reminded by his 4 year old daughter this morning, ‘no touching the chocolate until Easter, as we have given up chocolate for Lent’!
