Easter & Holiday Fun

What is the best thing about Eater for me? The wide-eyed delight of the boy hunting for Easter Eggs!!

We had a quiet Easter, hubby was working Friday & Monday so we stayed home, but we had a great time regardless. 'Easter Bunny' came and left the below eggs - OK so maybe I got a bit carried away when I went egg-shopping - scattered around the yard.. They were in trees, under bushes, on the grass, by the steps.. Kids loved it :) (Our neighbours came in with their 4 kids).

It was a glorious autumn day and we had a cruisy time - Hot X Buns & tea/coffee for brekky & lunch and watching the kids hunt and then burn off the chocolate on the trampoline & totem tennis.

What to do on a wet, windy & cold day in the holidays? Make noise & mess!!

We had a wool dyeing session here for the boy & his friends (3 x mums had the chance to have a cuppa & chat!).

We used Jelly as the dye :) Easy to set up and safe for the kids.

Here are the end results.

  1. oh wow the wool looks great, what plans do you have for it? and how good is the jelly dye for the colour staying in?

  2. I don't have any plans so far, the kids will keep their own skeins so no doubt I'll end up knitting something with one lot, the boy suggested a cow! LOL!
