It’s the weekend!
And not only that, but here in (please be sunny) Wiltshire, the kids have broken up for Easter.
I have that holiday feeling-if you have small-ish kids you might recognise it-part relieved that that daily “for the eleventh time, will you put your shoes on” race for the door is postponed for a couple of weeks; part mild dread at the thought of trying to referee two small people 24/7 for 16 days, and 8.5hrs….
As ever, I have good intentions of trying to fill our days with many happy hours of crafting and skipping gaily through fields with laughing children, but we shall see….
Anyway, I’ve been hitting Pinterest, and have found some awesome Easter/Spring themed crafts, for you and the smalls in your life.
1. 2. 3. and 5.
Via Pinterest. The links kept saying it was suspicious when I clicked through to try and find the original source, but I think the pics are pretty self-explanatory if you want to have a go!
3. A little bit of clever folding gets you this one from The Scrappy Side of Life
4. A little bit more clever folding and you can make one of these adorable origami bunny baskets from Oh So Very Pretty
5. Or you can weave one from a newspaper, like Deceptively Educational!
1. Shaun the Sheep! Via Pinterest

Crafts for the Grown-ups
1. There are 6 great Easter bags here from Mollie Makes-I really want to have a go at the crocheted bunny…!
