It’s Good Friday today. Are you done decorating your eggs for Easter? Β Inspired by DisneyFamilyFun, we did this little cutie lamb today πŸ™‚

Easter Egg Lamb

Our little artist has just started learning the piano and one of his favourite piece is Mary has a Little Lamb. He learned this piece from YouTube. Watch him play here πŸ˜€

Since he is loving lambs so much, it is only appropriate to make one to accompany him <3

All you need are:Β 
* an empty egg shell
* a black straw for the legs
* colored paper for the ears (I cut out from old magazine)
* cotton balls
* glue

Cut the straws

Glue onto the egg

Paste cotton all over the lamb leaving the front part empty for the face

Draw eyes and mouth

The Easter Egg family is expanding πŸ˜€ Check out our previous post on making the Easter Egg Mickey Mouse here.

Mushrooms! We love mushrooms! Today we are going to make a footprint paper plate mushroom πŸ˜€

Footprint paper plate mushroom

Cut a paper plate to the shape of a mushroom top

Paint the paper plate red.

While waiting for the paper plate to dry, paint your foot white or brown.. πŸ˜€

Stamp your painted foot on a piece of coloured construction paper.

Back to the paper plate. Paint a coat of diluted PVA glue all over the plate. This acts as an adhesive to hold the cotton later on and also as a varnish. Read here to learn more about varnishing using PVA glue.

Paste cotton balls

Spread the remaining PVA glue at the back of the paper plate

Paste it onto the footprint and the mushroom is done! Served with a bowl of freshly cooked mushroom soup, YUMMY! πŸ˜€
