Quick Easter makes

Browsing on-line for some quick Easter makes for young Rosie and I to accomplish this weekend I came across some fun and easy ideas for us adults too.  So what is a girl to do, but share!

Martha Stewart napkins

How about cute Bunny-shape folded napkins for your table? Martha Stewart shows you how, here!

Carrot napkins

Maybe you’re heading on out for a picnic?  Wouldn’t these carrots of cutlery be the perfect compliment? Click here for the how-to as shared by Spoonful.

BHG Easter egg vase

From Better Homes & Gardens, a simple but effective delight to decorate your table, click here for the instructions to make yours.

Now on to the kids… some ideas to get them creative this weekend!

A cute decoration for the pre-schoolers (or indeed, any age!) from Free pre-school Crafts, click here for this and other ideas and how-tos.

Krokotak

How cute are these little guys?  Krokotak even supplies a print-out so that all your littlies have to do is colour in and cut out!  You can find the link here.

How about an activity in the kitchen?

Little hands will enjoy making these cookies as well as bringing them up to their mouths!  You will need cookie-cutters for this one… but I was also thinking that if you didn’t have extra time to bake, you could always make the same cut-outs from freckle-bread.  Belinda Strong at Mums Business shares her recipe here.

Okay, so how about something special for mums and their princesses to do together in the craft room? This beautiful tutu basket is just the thing!  If you haven’t got a stash of organza, I’m sure that you could cut some strips from your scrap basket or get out those ribbons?! Linsey is a gorgeous mum of four and shares wonderful step-by-step photos on her blog for how to create this girlie Easter basket, here.

I’m heading off now to plan the rest of my weekend’s activities!  I hope you’ve had a wonderful day, and I hope too that the rest of your weekend will be a special one!

Till next time – bunny hugs!
