Easter is my favourite holiday.... chocolate, shiny foil, bunnies and little fluffy chicks... what a fabulous combination! I have been collecting easter-themed bits and pieces for a few weeks – some little chickens, bunny toothpicks and easter themed patty pans. The one thing that has been lacking is the inspiration for what to do with all this Easter cuteness. My brain feels tired, overwhelmed and out of ideas at the moment.
I decided that I would set it all up as an Invitation to craft (I love the invitation to play set-ups over at The Imagination Tree and Learn with Play@home). I laid out all the materials on our outdoor table, this is what I included:
- Patterned paper
- Container of pva glue with some pink paint added and a paintbrush
- 2 sets of easter chicks
- Easter-themed patty pans
- Bunny toothpicks
- Milk bottle tops
The kids created – combining bits and pieces together, dipping the string in the glue, making little seats for the chicks. It didn't really matter what they ended up making it was more important just to have fun and experiment.
|Oh yeah... and this happened!!|
