This week at Mothers Group we had a little Easter Party for the kids… ok, well for us. We each brought a plate of goodies and I organised a few craft activities. Here is Aidan sporting his bunny ears.
All I did was draw some ears, cut multiples out and stick them to a strip of cardboard for the headband. Then everyone coloured in the centers with a crayon and glued on strips of cotton wool. Sticky tape held the headband in place once it was sized for each child. Super cheap and super cute.
I also made little Easter Baskets out of paper cups from Woolworths. I just happened to have matching cardboard in my scrapbooking stash which I cut into strips and attached with a stapler. I used green cocktail napkins from the reject shop to line the cups. Then I filled them with little handmade chocolates that Mum and I made on Sunday night. Milk and white chocolates with mini marshmallows. I already owned chocolate moulds which inspired the project. I simply bundled them up in clear cello and popped them in the cups. The Mums went crazy for them!
Overall the last couple of days have been a bit crazy but the party (and the preparation for it) has been lots of fun. You can see some of the happy little bunnies from the party, such a cool bunch of babies. My Mum has come to visit for the next 2 weeks and I’m taking the opertunity to get some “me” time. She’s entertaining Aidan (or is it the other way around?) and I plan on doing a bit of uninterupted cleaning, going to the gym, getting fitted for some new bras and napping… Zzz
