We – me, Chloe and Millie decided just today that we would blog our Easter craft sessions in case anyone else was stuck for ideas for craft to do with your kids. Our first craft was to make some Easter bonnets and seeing as we are surrounded by fields we decided that it be ok to use fresh flowers instead of using the usual paper, glitter and things we would normally use. We figured if we just took one or two flowers from each group of wild flowers it would be ok.
Here’s Millie to tell you how we made the bonnets:
First we cut some wild flowers and got four different types of flowers and some fern.
Next we got wire and tied around the bonnet twice so that we weave the flowers into the wire.
After that we chopped the stalks so that they weren’t too long and weaved the flowers onto the wire.
My Mummy helped us and showed us how to do because it was really tricky.
We we had weaved all the flowers around we put some decorations on top of the bonnets.
We stuck the leftover flowers on top with PVA glue and then tied a bow round the top made out of ribbon.
These are our finished hats.
My favourite was putting the decorations on the top of the hat. Mummy thinks these would look lovely in the middle of the table on Easter Sunday.
