Pussy/goat willow (Barka in Hungarian) Easter Bunny
I bought some branches of pussy or goat willow. Honestly, I hate the English name of this beautiful plant, so we just call it catkin, the name referring to this kind of flower.
Anyway, I picked the catkins off the branch, placed them in bowl. I printed a bunny (more precisely 2 types of rabbit colouring pages) from the net and stuck it on card stock. I also added some glue and the fun could begin.
My daughter's idea of fun was different. After having stuck 8-10 catkins on the body of the bunny she told me: - Let's do it tomorrow.
Then she left. She tried it with Daddy the next day and they finished the rabbits more or less. The heads were still missing.
|We are almost there|
So on the third day we managed to finish the whole rabbit.
Split pea chick (Sárgaborsó csibe in Hungarian)
On our usually grocery shopping I picked up a bag of split peas forgetting that E. won't eat it, so I used some of it in our craft. Again, I just printed a chick from the net served E. with the split peas (raw) and glue.
After applying the glue all over the chick with a paintbrush, she enjoyed sprinkling the split peas on the chick, then pouring the excess back into the bowl.
The final art pieces have been stuck on our living-room door.
I took the ideas (Catkin Bunny, I couldn't find the Split Pea Chick idea again) from Pinterest collections on Easter crafts.
HOPPY EASTER, EVERYONE!
