easter craft ideas






The bringer of chocolate will be hopping around the corner soon enough (yay!). I have this week to make some hats of some description for the Easter Hat Parade on Friday. Zak wasn't too keen until I mentioned it would be small, and Layla wants a bunny mask again - 
and of course that means Immy does too. We made these ones last year (above)... I guess they're going to be similar this year, but might use some pretty fabric this time. Stay tuned... In the meantime, to get a similar look to these masks, you can try my original version, below, (no template though sorry) here.

I have one or two new crafts to bring you soon, but in the meantime, here are some blasts from the past that are no longer on my site (because it was hacked last year and I have been too lazy to painstakingly upload all the old posts in one hit). So maybe they're new to you? I made them for Kidspot a few years back - I love seeing how my kids have grown through their Kidspot pics! Layla looks so cute and tiny here! And yes, it's the same suit Immy is wearing in the top pics. I have no doubt there will be a picture of Annika in it in a year or so too! Possibly at Easter time just for fun.

  3. Aww, I remember when I used to see bunny footprints on Easter morning when I was little. My mum used to make them by sprinkling baby powder on the floor. It seemed pretty convincing that a big white bunny might leave nice-smelling snowy foot prints on the carpet. I thought it was pretty cool
