Have them grab a hold of the bottom of the bulb making sure not to squeeze bulb or to move once hand has made contact with the bulb. Have the child gently remove their fingers first by pulling straight off. Then remove palm. Decorate the ‘snowmen’. You might want to spray a protective coating of polyurethane to keep the paint from peeling. You could also use glue instead of paint and just glitter the whole hand. Great keepsake and would be a perfect gift for grandparents, uncles and aunts.

Easter Egg Wreath

59780_453138318092647_1127927847_nThis would make an awesome decoration that you can even make with your child. With all of the varieties of these plastic Easter eggs available this could go into any direction: Mix and match, use all glitter, use a theme, all animal designs. Start with a Styrofoam wreath of your choosing. Take a ribbon or thin wire and wrap it around the top to make a loop to use as a hanger.Wrap the wreath in a cheap fabric (use scrap or buy a festive Easter color or print) and hot glue and pin this together. Use hot glue to attach eggs – starting with the largest and going smaller to fill in the gaps. You could add a little Easter basket grass as you go if you wish. Add a festive bow to complete.
