Who doesn’t love Easter?
For me it’s right behind Christmas is the seasonal celebration ranking with its cheerful simplicity. There’s no need for endless hours of wrapping impossibly shaped gifts and sacrificing our papercut fingers in the name of love! There’s no carving of large root vegetables into fearsome faces or declaring our love in a card accompanied by a bunch of flowers wrapped in cellophane to honour St Valentine.
No no, there is no need for any of that with Easter. The Easter bunny demands far less from us.
It’s a chance for families to come together, to eat copious amounts of chocolate surreptitiously hidden in your Grandma’s Geranium planters, to finally be able spend time outdoors as Spring slowly opens the door and shoos away the harsh winter.
I love Easter, not only because of how wholesome and chocolate heavy it is, but also because it allows us to flex our creative crafting fingers. Below you will find some of Festive Fingerprints, Cotton Twist, Craft and Crumb and Organised Chaos with Kids’ most favourite Easter crafting ideas, in the hope that it may inspire you to have some fun with your own little ones!
I love to be as sustainable as possible, and if I can do that whilst creating beautiful hand-crafted Easter decorations, then what more could I ask for?
The ink pads that accompany your Festive Fingerprints order can be used far beyond just their intended greetings cards, think Easter Bunting, homemade wrapping paper, and even some delicately decorated cress head friends!
To see how we will be making use of the left-over ink pads in our house this Easter, pop back to the previous blog post or click the link below:
