Easter Fun Ideas

Easter Fun Ideas
With my little girl being 3 now, easter has become a lot more fun.  I decided to really celebrate easter this year for the first time and start a bit of an easter tradition. Something we haven’t had before but would look forward to each year.
When she woke up the easter bunny had left a basket in her room with an easter T-shirt in it , a bunny teddy and a little easter treat in a bag .
when we went downstairs , the dining room was laid out like a teddy bear/ Toy picnic .  I told my daughter that the easter bunny must have been having a picnic with the toys while we were sleeping. She loved it and we ate our breakfast there.
It was easy to put together thanks to the 99p shop (if in UK) and the dollar stores (if in USA) . I got the following
  • Stickers – which I put on bit of card to stand up as a little display
  • table cover – I just folded this to the size I wanted
  • Shot glasses – these were shaped perfectly to the adult ones to look like mini tumbler glasses
  • paper plates
  • Bunny lights
  • Easter confetti
  • Easter bunting
The shops are always full of great selections at the time
After breakfast (always good to get something other than chocolate to start , might not get away with that every year) we got our easter basket and went egg hunting.  Had to be indoors this year due to the weather but she didn’t mind.  We bought plastic eggs and had lots of different gifts inside them (this was cheap loot items from eBay).  She had a blast and had to play the ‘hunt the eggs’ game many many times during the day .
All items you need would be super cheap and lots of hours of fun.  Let us know of any ideas you do
Hope you like

Indoor Swing

With all the wet weather we have had, we were getting bored not getting to the park, so we decided to bring the park to us. Well not really an entire park but the swing.  I saw this on pinterest and thought it was a great idea.

All that was needed was a chin-up/pushup bar, about £5 , and a swing, about £7, both available from many shops including amazon and eBay

Took only seconds to put up and April loved it.  Even better that it is a physical thing to do than sitting watching tv .

Baking day

Rainy days with a toddler can be tough. So planning was needed.  We have a bread machine which sits idle 90% of the time so today was its day lol.

Ingredients in first thing and turned on and after a couple of hours it, gorgeous smelling bread dough.   Half was given to the little toots to play with and the other momma made bread with for lunch.  April played with it for hours, allowed me to make and set the bread and even bake them and clean up while she still played.  After she was finished we had gorgeous fresh and healthy bread for lunch with a movie . Perfect

Cheap and makes lunch at the same time.



First Post

My first post for Home Creative Home. Not going to lie its my fourth try at a blog but I think I have got the correct outlet for what I am looking for.  This is a scrapbook of my life, creative outlet and memory keeper all in one. The one thing I am not good at is grammar. Please be kind if viewing.

Hopefully you will find some things you can use . xxx
