I had my first Easter in Sydney this year and everywhere, apart from some cinemas and restaurants, is closed on Good Friday! Which ruined my plans – more things are opened on Easter Sunday!As this meant my plans to go shopping were no longer going to work out, I decided I would make some little easter decorations. I made a couple of little rabbits, a chick hatching as well as decorating some egg shaped pieces of felt – will add some ribbon to these so I can hang them up.
I normally celebrate Easter at home with my family, and although not a religious occasion at our house, the Easter bunny always makes a visit and my mum will get the Easter decorations out. Being away from home this year meant that I had to celebrate Easter a bit differently and make my own decorations. They also make great little presents for little people!
I have put together some templates for you to download and make your own Easter themed items.
I also found a really good Easter Egg Cupcake Recipe – I have made these so many times now that I can do it with my eyes closed (you can use rice pops)! Baking is a big part of home life especially for big occasions like Easter and Christmas.
If you have any Easter crafts that you would like to share, let me know.
