The inspiration for our spring chicken play dough comes from the clutch of ten eggs which have been resident in the girls school for a week. The eggs have been in an incubator in the reception class but every child in the school has been in to visit, to hear the chicks cheeping from inside the shells and to see the eggs wobbling and the first cracks appear. Then, most exciting of all, the chicks hatched, some brown, some yellow but all very fluffy. Great inspiration to talk about spring, bring out our favourite easy play dough recipe for some sensory play and make some chicks of our own.

As each new season arrives I look forward to the time when we take out the box of decorations to match the new celebrations. This weekend our Easter box came down and we took out our heirloom Easter eggs ready to decorate our Easter tree.
Easter represents new life and these decorations remind me each year of when my own little chicks were born, because they are made from some of the girls’ baby clothes. The colours and motifs on their babygrows and little dresses seemed such a good match to the theme of Easter that we used them to sew a set of decorations. Here’s how we made them.
