We began by making ducks. Everyone painted their paper plates yellow,and then traced their hands on yellow paper.Then while we waited for the plates to dry, we moved onto the next activity.
We used pipe cleaner and beads to make butterflies. The kids filled two pipe cleaners with beads and we used a third, folded in half for the body. I then bent one beaded pipe cleaner into almost a small m shape, with one of the bumps a little bigger, and twisted it onto one side of the body of the butterfly and repeated this step on the opposite side.
We then decorated cupcakes. We made bunny face and basket cupcakes. For the basket cupcakes, we simply used green frosting, licorice for the handles, and egg shaped jelly beans to place in the basket. We used jelly beans and gel frosting to simply draw bunny faces on some of the cupcakes, Lourie did use some licorice to make ears for hers too, it was so cute.
And then we finally finished our ducks. Lourie and I ended out cutting out all of the feet, beaks, and heads while the kids all played for a bit. Then they came back together to make their ducks.Instructions can be found at link below
It was a very fun morning. And I am definitely ready for a nap now. Hope you have a great Easter!
