Easter is another great opportunity to try something new with the kids, and brighten things up with some Easter decorations – and this Carrot Garland certainly fits the bill. It’s very quick and easy to make, and should keep the kids busy for an hour or so.

Mook’s Valentine Card
So yesterday was the calm before the ‘next’ storm. This year, that means we had glimpses of sunshine, in between heavy showers of rain and hail, with a little less wind than on previous days. Needless to say, we’re all going a little stir crazy.
Thankfully, we have not had to contend with the tragic consequences some people are suffering after the recent storms. But, when the level of activity in the rabbit hutch suggests they are planning their next ‘great escape’, and the kids are being ever more inventive in their mischief, it’s time for a distraction…
Sadly, the rabbits will have to make do with extra helpings of carrots and cabbage, but today Mook and Lulu have been happily crafting for Valentine’s Day.

Don’t throw your pizza backing boards away
– turn them into decorative flip-flops with the kids!
There are days, particularly when we’ve all been busy at school or work, when I just need something quick and easy for the kids to eat. On days such as these, I have been know to give them *whisper* shop-bought pizza.
Often these pizzas come with a polystyrene backing board, which my local council is unable to recycle. I find these perfect little white circles quite endearing and it seems such a shame to throw them in the bin. So over several years…ahem, months I’ve collected quite a few.
I’ve recently come up with the idea to use these polystyrene discs to create delightful decorative flip-flops, complete with tread on the bottom. They’re so easy and fun to make and make a great project to do with your children, or (if like me, you have quite a few of them) this would be a lovely activity for a party.
Here’s how we made Pizza Board Flip-Flops
