i haven't made any easter decorations for a long time, not since my kids were young.
my egg dying skills are not good and after a few attempts ended up with green eggs instead of the lovely blue i was looking for, reminding me of green eggs and ham! so painting them ended up being easier.
here are a couple of simple ideas using things i already had at home. something kids would enjoy making.
the nest is a small wreath filled with raffia. the sprouted eggs are an idea i saw on tumblr. after i emptied and washed the eggs i filled with cotton wool, wet with water, then sprinkled with broccoli seeds. it took about 3 days for them to sprout, watering every day. the egg cups are cardboard tubes wrapped in hessian/ burlap, ribbon and raffia & i found the seagull feathers near the beach.
wouldn't the kids get a surprise if the easter bunny brought healthy sprout easter eggs instead of chocolate? ;)
enjoy your easter break & the chocolate!
