With less than one week to go before Easter school holidays Miss Molly is all about bunnies, chocolate, sleeping-in and playing dolls for days on end!! Yesterday evening we turned our attention to how to decorate the door or hallway for the Easter Bunny, make him feel welcome and all that, entice him to leave more chocolate perhaps, and the wonderful Easter printables from Smallful were 'just the ticket'. We loved the choice of printable bunny ears, top hats and diorama easter eggs but Molly, being a 'dress-up doll' kinda gal of course went for Bernie, the dress-up wall bunny puppet. After a quick download and print we were ready to cut, punch and pin the pieces together... the process of making was every bit as fun and engaging as was the dress-up part xx
My latest Easter bunny craft inspiration began with the new Happy Handmade eBook, launched in January, filled cover to cover with doable and unique projects. I loved the simplicity of little animal necklaces and pendants created by Willow Day for the book, made from basic furniture felt pads that you get in hardware stores and supermarkets! and decided to give them a go!

It was an introduction to weaving weekend in our house - for both Molly and moi. I cannot believe I haven't tried this before! I picked up a little wooden kids loom at Tiger store last week, together with some deliciously 'hairy' wool (originally bought to make beards for toilet roll characters or something) but Molly 'absolutely for certain' wanted the hairy wool in her weave. Weaving for kids is such a gorgeous craft activity, Molly is utterly hooked and planning ahead for next weekend already - she wants to try polka dots and triangles. I'm off to find simple tutorials on youtube..... and a bigger loom, mommy wants to play too :) "weaving is easier than knitting mom, and way funner" :)
