Spring has sprung! Well, perhaps not quite yet, as it's not official until around the 20th March, however it’s certainly feeling more and more spring like everyday. We have tiny bursts of narcisisi in the garden, & a sprinkling of muscari which I am stopping the girls from ploughing into pots to make perfumes and potions! The slighlty brighter mornings & evenings are giving me a little spring in my step, & I’m loving adding more & more pops of the fresh new season's colours into my home.
I love having little mini Easter displays in my home that the kids can add to with their decorated eggs & crafts
I go through their books & toys, & pick out a few seasonal ones. I then add to it with anything they might have gathered on walks and school runs. They haven’t fully had the opportunity yet, but I know the display will include egg cups full of daisies and buttercups, (always egg cups as they always seem to pick such short stems!) along with all the Easter crafting they will create. I adore Easter makes. You don’t have the pressure of Christmas, & you can simply revel in all the time to make and enjoy!
The new personalised Easter egg hunt tins are fantastic for making your easter egg hunts even more exciting...
These cute little personalised stripy tins house 10 american maple wood eggs with different words engraved on them which will lead you to the location of the next egg - you can also leave little treats on the way if you choose. So with the first egg, it could say ‘clean’ and you would find the second egg in the bath, & so on. I thought I’d give you a couple of examples of places I've thought of to hide the eggs.
Obviously the garden is the perfect place for an Easter egg hunt, but sadly the weather can’t be relied upon. If it does stay dry, by a watering can or pond is great for hiding the ‘wet’ or ‘dirty’ eggs.
Shoes are great for ‘shiny’ or ‘smelly’ depending on your footwear of choice!
Something to hang decorated eggs on is always a feature in our home at Easter
You can collect sticks and twigs & display in a jug or vase to hang them on. I have used pussy willow as I love the soft buds alongside the brightly coloured eggs. These decorated eggs from the personalised Easter decoration gift tin are perfect as everything is included in the tin. The decoration is lightweight and so it's easy to hang from even the weediest of branches, & the simple repeat pattern is just so happy!
The tins are also fab for keeping little treats in after doing the activity, we use ours for hairclips, beads, & all manner of tiny things!
These kits are so much fun! All you need to add is the egg & a pen to draw on the face, then you're good to go. They are the perfect activity as so much joy can be had from playing with them after they've been made. We enjoyed coming up with names for their little masterpieces. We have Eggmond the Great and Eggmae the mermaid so far...
Have an eggcellent Easter break!
