It’s always good to get a long weekend at Easter but must admit we don’t really celebrate Easter as such in our house. Harry always gets a mountain of chocolate and we use it for time to do some creative things, and this year was no different. We have a garden full of pebbles that we can’t seem to give away for love nor money, and as much as Harry loves digging them with his toy diggers it’s always good to find new uses for them. So, I set him the challenge of choosing some of his faves to make into Easter bunnies for the grandparents. Admittedly they don’t resemble rabbits very much (the ears are wrong) but as a toddler Harry loves anything that involves googley eyes, which is always the first thing he requests from the craft supplies, and puffy paint. I’m not sure what the recipients will do with them but they could be paper weights.
As much as we had fun making these it just wouldn’t be Easter without chocolate, and we have more than enough of that for Harry this easter to combine with Easter egg moulds to make some little bags of choc eggs to go with the pet rock rabbits – we don’t want anyone to be disappointed with lack of chocolate at Easter! Harry even wanted to hide some of his mini mini-eggs in them as a surprise, and of course had to taste a few as quality control.
Did you do any creative activities or presents for Easter?
