Easter Time!!!

We love Easter in our house but since we found out Cooper is allergic to eggs we've had to find some alternatives the usual easter crafts.

I love making hot cross buns as well as some yummy marshmellow....there is nothing better than homemade marshmallow!

While browsing through the Kings Seeds website I found some easter egg radishes. We have planted ours ready in time for Easter but they would make a great gift for avid little gardeners and the great thing with radishes is that they sprout really quickly. I also found some rainbow carrots which the kids are very excited about too! 
You could even personalise them with these cute printable seed packets.

And if you're not into gardening here a few cute ideas from the lovely people at Felt.

Tea Dying, Children's Day & A Little Special!

This week has been a rather busy and fun filled one!

On Monday I got my lovely Good Magazine. There was a great article in there about dying things with tea bags. I couldn't resist having a go and tried out normal tea as well a two of my fruit teas...I had some old doilies that needed something and they come out very colourful.....Now I just need to make something out of them!

Loving the different colours

On Sunday we celebrated Children's Day at Cass Square where the whole area was filled with amazing games, pony rides, petting zoo, crafts, talent comps, food & drink and it was all free! We all had a blast and the kids came home with lots of little prizes! We are so lucky that the community gets together and puts on such a great day for our children!

Now that March is here and things are cooling down I've decided to run a little special. For every purchase you will receive a free finger puppet. Pop over to my Felt & Etsy and check out all the winter warmers!
