|Lesson in how to open an Easter Egg|
|There's something inside|
Talking about egg-things, we are suddenly inundated with eggs; JUST as I have found some great crafty eggy projects and Spring/Easter is now over. I'm sure anyone with chickens will agree when I say it is astonishing how you can go from planning how to best to use your last egg - not knowing when the next will come - to being 'egg city', within a blink of an eye.
It was very rainy and horrible here today so we decided to do C a little egg hunt in the house instead of outside as planned. Whilst she was asleep we put a couple of foil covered mini eggs inside partially blown up balloons and 'hid' them around the house, of course some of the balloons were empty.
When C 'found' a balloon (and after vigourous shaking) she popped the balloon with scissors to get out the eggs. We did about 6 balloons in total and as many little eggs. Great fun and definitely one to repeat next year.
All in all it's been a chocolatey; rabbity; lazy; kind of a day - as you can see from the photos. I suppose I should have made more effort to tidy C up for the photos but the child will insist on going out without shoes on; rolling around on the floor with the dogs; and brushing her hair herself (I do the knots on special occasions). Anyway, what harm's a bit of mud; dirt; and chocolate when you're 2.
