I’m not sure about you, but my favourite crafty activities are the ones with a theme. And Easter? It might just be my favourite 🐇
So, to keep those little hands busy [as the weather gets cooler and a bit more damp], we’ve collected some of our favourite Easter activities for you. From brightly coloured eggs, to chicks and bunnies – these are bound to bring a little extra magic to your crafting.
I’ve aimed to find ideas using things you can find at home, or in your garden. So take a look, and I do hope they bring a little inspiration your way. x
No trend has had a comeback quite like tie-dye has this year. Why not bring it to your Easter decorating too?
