I love nothing better than sitting down to do crafts with Arthur of course at almost 3 years old he would rather be playing with Playmobil or watching Paw Patrol on tv however crafting teaches valuable skills so we will continue to do this at least once a week.
Our crafts this week have been Easter themed and I really wanted to show you one of the Easter tree decorations we have made. I appreciate that not all three year olds will be able to do this craft and it does require adult supervision as the main component is drawing pins, you could do this with sequins and sequin pins.
To make the golden egg you will need a polystyrene egg, piece of ribbon and gold drawing pins. Start by pinning the ribbon in place on either side of the egg using one drawing pin on each side. With the remaining drawing pins overlap the drawing pins until the whole egg is covered with no gaps showing. Your finished egg can be hung on your Easter tree or placed in an Easter basket.
