It's almost Easter! Here that means a LOT of rain, and a lot of time inside.
I love it - there's something so cosy about popping on some knitted socks and curling up with a cup of tea, a blanket and a good book while the rain 'pitter patters' on the roof..
But the kids? Not so much. It won't be long before I start to hear "I'm Bored!"
After we've exhausted colouring, Lego and Playdoh, our go-to activity for keeping the kids amused is craft.
So I thought I'd share one of my old Easter craft favourites with you this week!
It's a really simple one that you can do with the kids this weekend, with stuff you most likely already have at home.
All you need is:
- Paper Plates - 1 large and 1 small for each child
- Pink paint & paintbrushes (or pink textas or crayons if you don't have paint)
- Glitter (optional)
- A black permanent marker
- A stapler
Here's a pictorial How To with a throwback to when the girls' made these for Easter 2013 (they were almost 4 and almost 2 at the time, so cute!):
How to make (super easy) Easter Bunny craft
Step 1. Grab a small paper plate and paint the inner circle pink (we also put glitter around the edge).
Step 2. When it's dry, cut the paper plate in half. Now you have your bunny ears!
Step 3. Take a large paper plate and draw your bunny face on with your thick black marker.
Step 4. Now just staple your ears to the large plate and your bunny is done!
My girls decided their bunnies would be painted pink, purple and blue.
They look fantastic! Really inexpensive, kept them busy for ages and got us excited for Easter.
Here's Soph modelling her mask:
