E-I-E-I-O,

With the cluck, cluck here, cluck, cluck there…

Alright, let’s just get to business 😛

It’s a wonder what our handprint can do. Today, we’ll transform our handprint into a hen 🙂

Remember the Happy Family Chicken Eggs we just did? Remember the Easter Egg Bunny? All we need to do now is make a basket to keep them nicely together 🙂

Easter Egg Basket. The Happy Chicken Family and their friend, the Easter Bunny 🙂

Cut an empty egg carton. We'll need only four 'nests'.

Trim the sides and paste double-sided tape. Stick a strip of crepe paper all around it.

In case you're wondering how to prepare the crepe paper, just cut a strip and fold. Then trim one end so that it's a little bit rounded.

Use a hole punch and punch a hole each on both sides of the basket. Put a pipe cleaner through it and twist to secure. The Easter Egg Basket is done 🙂

I so love this Easter project that I did with Ethan (well, most of it was ME as empty egg shells are too fragile to be handled by him). The end result is just too satisfying and cute!
Let’s start 😀

One Happy Family Chicken Eggs

You'll need some empty egg shells.

You'll need to cut out some 'chicken parts' from coloured felts and paste double layered tape on it.

Paste all the parts onto the empty egg shell. Draw two dots as the eyes.

Introducing... Daddy Chicken Egg 😀

Put your hands together for... Mummy Chicken Eggs 🙂

Our bundle of joy... Baby Chicken Egg a.k.a. Ethan 😛

Together, we make a lovely Happy Family portrait 🙂

I’m still smiling looking at those eggs 🙂 If you have any Easter projects you want to share with us, please submit them here and we’ll link it back to you. Thank you 🙂

Easter is around the corner. Let’s make a simple but cute Easter greeting card 🙂

Easter Greeting Card

Trace the outline of your palm and cut. You'll need both sides of your palms cut out.

Cut out an oval from a yellow construction paper.

Paste the palm cut out on each side as the wings.

Cut a triangle from a brown felt as the beak. Two circles from beach felt as the eyes. Cut two legs from brown foam and two small circles from black foam. Glue. You may also opt to use construction paper instead of felt and foam but I prefer felt and foam for a better finish 😀
