Little Sis had her first Easter party at nursery this morning. I think she quite enjoyed wearing an Easter bonnet although she didn’t want to spend any time decorating it. We were allowed to pick her up a little early to watch the Easter parade.
The Easter bunny made a special appearance, we listened to the children singing some songs and then everyone walked the runway in pairs. Little Sis was last to go on and looked a little non-plussed by the whole thing!
Our Easter holidays officially started today as nursery broke up yesterday. Big Brother was given some fun homework tasks to carry out and we ticked off the first one this morning – a treasure hunt on the High Street.
Big Brother had a sheet containing letters spelling out the words Easter Hunt Eggs, all the letters could be found on shop signs! We spent our morning walking up and down trying to identify the shops and he did really well, only needing a little help.
He identified all of the shops except for one but we handed in his form and he received a small prize which made him very happy.
We seem to have a plethora of styofoam eggs this year, I obviously keep buying them when I see them and promptly forget about them. This year they are all in an Easter basket to remind us to get crafting.
I bought a pack of eye and moustache stickers from Tiger which I thought would be perfect for some quick crafting. The 4 year old had fun choosing his favourites and sticking them on the eggs to create some crazy faces.
When he had finished we displayed some of the eggs in vintage egg cups.
I wonder what other ways we can come up with to decorate them.
