Wooden spoons are not just for mommy to use in the kitchen, kids can create cute characters such as Easter rabbit or chick and spring lady bug to go with the flowers we crafted before.
A very easy bricolage and a lot of fun. If your kid is under 3 years, paint the spoons yourself and let it dry before starting to play together. I recommend acrylic paint but don’t mix it with water for more vibrant colors.
Small details to stick with your kids such as pompom, wiggling eyes, feather…. are more instructional then you think. Learning the shapes, names, colors and you can extend the fun by telling stories about Easter and spring.
Nady was so much interested and fascinated with the lady bug antennas.

Fixing the ears and nose

After playing with the spoons puppet, it’s time to add them to our precious flower vase.
It was such a joy for him. He kept playing and contemplating their fascinating colors for an hour
We love the spring season and can’t wait for Easter!

For elegant yet simple Easter eggs, it’s a must to use gold or silver color and it’s the material that will make it look fancy.
I chose to dye the eggs with acrylic gold paint using my hand to make it look like patina effect.
Give it some time to dry before applying the paillette line. Fix it with glue for safe results, I used super glue.
The richness, neatness and somptuous elegance will mark you Easter!
