My Mum sent me four of these miniature hessian shopping bags from the Trade Aid shop in NZ.
I think her intention was that the kids would sew and glue things onto them during the holidays, but me being a crafting control freak once I had an idea I had to run with it!
Anyway I needed them for today so last night I whipped three of these cute little Easter Egg Hunt bags up. The buttons were from The Works, cost £1 and I have a handfull left over. I already had the felt so they only cost me pennies to decorate!!
Thursday afternoon saw us at parent teacher meetings so I left the kids to decorate a box of egg shaped cookies from Tescos whilst we popped over to the school. They had fun and it was £4.00 well spent ( my conscience felt guilty for buying them and not making them), as afterwards I was pleased I had bought them as Ben got so much pleasure out of it as well.
I think Georgia enjoys eating more than decorating...and Ben learnt how to steal the sweets from the other girls.....
