Easter Holidays!

Well, its half term again! I always look forward to spending time with my girls and most of the time its fab but today they are driving me bonkers! I thought a bit of crafting would help them play nicely but they are fighting over glue sticks, lying on each others cards and now throwing things at each other!! Go away rain we need some outdoor running around!

Before the fighting started we made some lovely Easter gifts for friends and cousins, here's what we did and how we did it....

We started with some cardboard tubes, cut them in half and stuck coloured paper to them. You could paint them I guess but it was quicker and cleaner for us to cut and stick!

The over hanging edges were slit and folded under each end

Each covered tube was then stuck to a cardboard base

Features were added, wings and beaks and little feet for chicks...

And ears and carrots and bigger feet for bunnies!

We added cotton wool balls for tails too! We shredded some yellow paper and stuffed the tubes with it to make a nice soft nest for some chocolate yumminess!

All in all a fun rainy afternoon, we will definately make these again, I am already thinking of ways to customise them for the royal wedding....and Halloween...and Christmas....

Hope you love them as much as I do!
See you soon
