Okay, time to set your Flylady timer for 15 minutes and 'get cracking' [insert big ho, ho here].
- empty milk or juice carton
- pair of scissors
- coloured paper or carton
- glue stick
- cotton wool
- cress seeds
Cut down your empty carton.
Fill it up with cotton wool.
Cut out some 'grass' from a length of green paper or carton and stick on using a glue stick.
Now it's time to make a 'wabbit'. I folded over my paper and drew one freehand. There are plenty of templates and stencils on the net if you need inspiration - just google "rabbit template".
Cut out your 'wabbit' and stick him on to the milk carton. Feel free to draw on eyes, a nose, etc. I like my things pretty plain. Also because I sometimes end up with a Hot Cross Bunny instead of a cute-faced one... But I couldn't resist adding a little bit of cottonwool for his powder puff tail :)
Dampen the cotton wool and sprinkle over the cress seeds. Leave on a warm windowsill for about a week and keep the cotton wool damp. I'll post another picture when we see start to see some growth ;)
When the cress is sprouted, put your Easter Bunny on the table along with a little pair of scissors and let guests help themselves. Though you might have to explain what cress is to younger guests... I remember one Easter where we put cress on top of our egg mayonnaise salad and DS10 (then just a tot) asked, "Why are you putting grass on my food?" Bon appétit! ;)
Hope you have a terrific Tuesday! :)
