Our Easter Card Crafting Fun

Ben loves painting so he was delighted when I produced a pack of Easter themed sponges and his paints yesterday and told him we were going to make cards for his Grandparents. Straight away he got stuck in and we ended up with pages and pages of chicks, eggs, butterflies and bunnies along with a very cute albeit slightly odd shaped chick he drew all by himself.

Once they were dry I cut out all the shapes and laid them on the table. Ben thought this was fantastic and we had lots of fun using them to tell stories. Chicks were hiding behind Easter eggs from bunnies who came hopping along while butterflies flew past and picked up eggs and then dropped them into volcanoes. Yes - volcanoes, Ben is obsessed with them since there was one in Jake and the Neverland Pirates. When he had enough of the storytelling we decided to assemble some cards which you can see pictures of below.

Bunnies, eggs and butterflies!

I have to say I love these little craft projects just as much as Ben and I know that his Grandparents are going to be delighted when these cards arrive in the post.
