My children love doing crafts and other structured activities at home. Our dining table sees a lot of action and although I also like to give them time to just play (I’m a firm believer in not over stimulating kids and in the power of being bored), it’s nice to plan some themed activities to do together. It might be the teacher in me…
Crafts are always a great start. You can keep the children entertained for the cost of some basic craft supplies (I always keep in white card, paint, PVA glue and a variety of stickers, as well as saving cardboard boxes and so on).
We try and keep our crafts seasonal, and use it as an opportunity to discuss the changes of the seasons as well as significant festivals. So what better than some daffodil bunting? We used a daffodil template. I searched for the outline on Google, printed it and drew round it on sturdy white card. We then painted them yellow, allowing them to dry. Then we painted the middles of egg boxes with yellow and orange paint.
Once dry we attached the egg box middles to the centre of the painted daffodil shapes and then glued them to string to make bunting.
Easter Egg bunting would also work well – cut Easter egg shapes out of card and decorate with sequins, felt tips and glitter, then attach to string.
