Eggheads with cress hair

We make these Eggheads with cress hair every year because the kids think they’re so funny. If you get them ready four or five days beforehand  they will have grown a full head of hair ready for the Easter weekend – which you can then snip off to enjoy with an egg sandwich.

Easter crafts Creation Station with Hallmark

With less than two weeks until the holiday weekend the NurtureStore house is now full on baking, painting and generally bursting with Easter crafts! I’ve got a great idea today for an Easter creation station, which invites the children to glue, stick, paint, tear and create to their hearts content.

This lovely craft idea is brought to you in association with Hallmark. They are also full of the joys of spring and you can visit their site for a great range of greetings cards and gifts. They have lots of Easter fun, games and giveaways happening on their facebook page - so do hop on over to take a look and join in.

Easter bunny and spring lamb cards

Today, less is more. Little made these two Easter cards to give to her best friends at pre-school. They are a very simple design but I think they’re prefect Easter cards for a little one to make, almost by themselves. You can just draw the basic outline and then let them take charge and make a unique card. So easy, you could make them this weekend to send to grandparents in time for the Easter holiday.
