This week we have been doing activities to celebrate Easter. We have been bless with some gorgeous weather (every rare in the North West of England especially so early in the year!) so most activities have been done outside. This is very good since the new house has a carpet rather than laminate so crafts such a painting and playdough are harder to clean up (must invest in a large shower curtain to put down under the craft table!
So here goes...
The Easter Sensory Bin
Not one of my greatest sensory bin attempts I must say but rather thrown together at the last minute! It contains, Easter grass, mini chicks and rabbits, large open and close plastic Easter eggs and some flowers.
The pound shops had some fab Easter themed playdough cutters so I made some pink playdough for a Spring/Easter theme! I also added these cute egg trays, again from the Poundshop!
Egg cup painting
Again another Pound shop find. I bought some clay 'paint your own' eg cups for the kids to paint. They didn't quite get 'wash your brush between colours' as normally when painting we just have a different brush for each colour!
Easter egg hunt
I hid several little plastic eggs around the garden for a simple Easter egg hunt. I had to slow Melissa down and practically guide Louis right to them or Melissa would of found them all!
Not really a craft with the kids but my attempt at making Melissa an Easter bonnet-you better be impressed lol!
