The Easter holidays are here and with it brings the dilemma of what to do on the inevitable bad weather days. My kids love to make things, and also to bake so keeping them occupied when it's raining is pretty easy and made easier still with the Easter craft range available from Home Bargains. E spent two days home from school poorly with a temperature, but being E she didn't want to lay around and do nothing so she got to work making and writing Easter cards for her class teacher & teaching assistants as well as for the headmaster and deputy head. The cards came in a pack of five with envelopes ready-cut pieces including bunnies, eggs and chicks which made it nice and easy for miss independent to put together her own designs and stick them down.
Our local Lions Club holds a free egg hunt in town for children under 12 which also includes an Easter bonnet competition. E used the Easter bonnet kit from Home Bargains to design her own hat, using pipe cleaners and feathers to complete her creation. She used a fork to twist the piper cleaners into spirals and decorated the yellow hat with fabric bunny cut outs and pom poms, finishing it off with a nest of baby chicks on the top of some colourful tissue paper 'Easter grass'. The kit also includes glue, felt, wiggly eyes and ribbon to enable kids to create their own special bonnet designs.
In addition to their crafty & creative offerings, Home Bargains stock a range of sweetie favourites including Cadbury's Mini Eggs, as well as iced Easter cookies, marshmallow lollies and hollow chocolate bunnies - the perfect treats for the kids Easter baskets. Or you know, maybe for you to sneakily eat when the kids have gone to bed... I don't judge.
