Our perfect Easter involves a touch of colour. It includes mostly pale colours, like colours that have been soaked in water. Colours that are like little rays of light, a faint light which hasn’t been completely flooded with the brightness of Summer yet. There’s just one thing on our minds at this time of year: to be outdoors. To be closer to nature, closer to the light. To celebrate Spring.

  3. Thread the twine through the holes to seal the bag.
  4. Following the outline, cut out the bunny’s shape.
  5. Using a black marker, colour in the bunny’s eyes, nose and whiskers.

My Little Day’s Happy Easter Egg Hunt – with all the allure of a treasure hunt!

What you’ll need:

  • Eggs
  • A large needle
  • Food colouring
  • A pair of scissors
  • Our super printable set: http://en.mylittleday.fr/imgfck/230/Image/printable_diy_paques.pdf

Directions:

  1. Empty out the contents of the raw egg using the big needle (get a grown up to help with this) by piercing a hole at the top of the egg and then piercing an even bigger hole at the bottom of the egg. You can blow through the smaller hole to make sure the egg is completely empty
  2. Create your own colours using the food colouring (ask a grown up to help with this) and place the eggs in the food colouring solution for several minutes to create a softer tint or leave them in longer for a more vibrant colour. Leave to dry
  3. Print and cut out the super printable set
  4. Roll the paper as tightly as you can and insert it into the egg using the bigger hole and voilà, your egg is ready! All the children need to do now is to crack open their egg to discover the secret message which has been hidden inside!
