Lanka Kade Wooden Animals {Review}

As you probably know by now, Florence loves animals. Last year while looking for birthday presents for her I stumbled upon a range of chunky wooden toy animals that looked like they were more than up for the challenge of surviving a one year old’s […]

DIY Easter Bunny Treat Bag Tutorial

DIY Easter Bunny Treat Bag Tutorial

So you guys seemed to love my DIY reindeer food sack  tutorial at Christmas so much, so I thought I’d try and recreate something similar for Easter. These little Bunny treat bags are just the cutest and add a lovely extra touch to your Easter Gifts.

I’ve used them to wrap up plastic fillable eggs or small treat size Easter Eggs like Cadbury’s Creme Eggs but you could always size up and use them to wrap bigger eggs or gifts if you fancied too.

What do you need?

Square of Pastel Coloured Fabric

Googly Eyes

Elastic Band

Ribbon

Plastic / treat size Easter Egg

White Pom Pom or Cotton Wool Ball

How to make a DIY Easter Bunny Bag

Lay your fabric square down on a flat surface with a corner pointing to you. Lay your egg (this one here is filled with homemade play dough, but you could fill yours with anything you like) and roll it up inside the fabric until you meet the opposite corner. You’ll have a sausage like shape with a pointed end either side.

Bring each end up to the top and cross them over to make the ears, using the elastic band to keep them in place.

Stick two googly eyes to the front. I used a hot glue gun as it just sticks better but you could use PVA glue if you have more patience than I do!

Turn your bunny bag around and stick the white pom pom to the back to make the tail.

Finish it off by tieing a ribbon around the bottom of the ears.

How cute do these look? I’ve made a couple of these for each of the children in our family and filled them with all sorts of treats including homemade play dough, chocolate buttons and sensory eggs.

They’d look super cute at different stations around an Easter Egg hunt or you could add them to your own little one’s Easter Basket like I have for Florence.

DIY SENSORY EASTER EGGS FOR BABIES & TODDLERS {GIFTED SAMPLES USED}

Gift Ideas for Baby’s First Easter

I can’t believe how quickly William’s first Easter has come around. While he is clearly too young to know what on earth is going on, let alone take advantage of the chocolate fest Easter brings, I still wanted to make him up his own little […]

3 Toddler Approved Easter Meal Ideas {GIFTED}

3 Toddler Approved Easter Meal Ideas {GIFTED}

Ever feel like you just keep serving up the same meals for your little one week after week? Recently I’ve noticed Florence had started to become quite fussy at meal times and I began to wonder if she was just a bit bored of what I was putting in front of her. In a bid to make breakfasts and lunch times a bit more interesting, I have been playing with some different meal ideas to keep things interesting and hopefully ignite her love of food again. With Easter coming up I thought I’d share three  plates I’ve been making for Florrie in case you needed some inspiration for some fun ways to serve your tot’s meals this Easter.

Plastic Egg Snack Box

This was such a fun little breakfast to serve up! Basically, I’d filled three open plastic eggs {gifted} with six of her favourite breakfast ingredients – cheerios, rice snaps, blueberries, grapes (quartered), a strawberry and the contents of an Ella’s kitchen fruit pouch with a chocolate brioche on the side. I gave Florence the box closed so she could open and see the surprise and her little face was a picture. She gobbled up the whole lot too.

Easter Pancakes

These Easter shaped pancakes make for the perfect treat breakfast or snack served up with a handful of your tot’s favourite berries. I used a chick and an egg shaped cookie cutter {gifted} to cut out the shapes in some shop bought pancakes. I spread nutella on the eggs and decorated them with sprinkles and strips of strawberries and squeezed some banana fruit puree onto the chick, using a raisin for his eye. Needless to say, it didn’t take long for these to disappear!

Easter Friend Sandwiches

How adorable are these little Easter friend sarnies! They are simply dairy lea sandwiches cut into a bunny & a chick shape using some cookie cutters. The rabbit is fairly straight forward, and the chick was made using an egg shaped cutter and then cutting some of the spare sandwich into triangles for the wings. Top with blueberry eyes and a carrot beak and voila! I served them on top of spinach and cut some strawberry slices into flower shapes for extra fun. 

I hope you can see how really easy these fun 3 toddler approved Easter meals are to make. I’d love to know if you try any of the above three and what your little one makes of them.

A Week of Play – 7 Sensory & Small World Tray Ideas for Toddlers
