A warm welcome to all of our new families, nannies and educators! We look forward to getting to know you and your children!
Easter is upon us at the end of the week along with the first term school holidays. Have you and your littlies been enjoying some Easter crafts and activities recently.
Here are some ideas you might like to try!
Easy Easter Bunny or Chic Basket
You will need:
- 2 paper plates
- Felt tip pens
- White or yellow card
- Hole punch
Cut off top of both paper plates. This will form the ears for the bunny. For the chic basket cut a zig zagged pattern like a cracked egg.
Let your child colour and decorate his/her basket how they chose.
Glue buuny ears on and or chic to plate
Staple plates together and attach ribbon for the handle.
Paper Mache Easter Egg Piñata
This activity is a bit of a process and is best done over a few days to let the glue dry.
You will need:
- Old newspaper
- Paste (this can also be homemade using flour and water)
- Paint brushes
Blow up balloon to desired size.
Rip newspaper into small pieces and begin to paste them onto the balloon. Once you have done one layer let it dry in the sun. Continue until you have done 4 -5 layers.
Once the glue is dry you can paint your paper mache Easter Egg
Pop balloon using a pin and fill with Easter goodies.
Hang outdoors and see who can break the egg first!
