Kitty Bee Designs - Easter Easter Hunt Ever


A few weeks ago I opened my big mouth and said to my friends wouldn't it be nice to do an Easter Hunt round the park for the children. "Oh yes" they said and silly me said I'll do it - it'll be easy! Then this Saturday I realised the hunt was the next day!  Cue a very last minute trip to the supermarket for eggs and lots of them!!

Next to make some clues, lovely Ruth from Kitty Bee Designs sent me her very cute Easter Egg Bun so I could start making clues.  I'm a huge fan of her little cuties and so glad I'm on the DT otherwise I would be bankrupt by now.  Here's the link to her Etsy shop - go on take a peek!!

Now in the spirit of making things easy for myself (and leaving it until 11.30pm to sort out!!) and still needing to colour quite a few bunnies - how could I do this quickly?  I opened the image in paint and simply used the paint pot tool to fill in the large areas on the rabbit grey and then a couple of quick clicks to colour it's little nose and ears pink. I then printed out an army of bunnies, with just the eggs to colour.

 I coloured the eggs (very very quickly) with my promarkers and made a quick colour book for the smaller children to match up and the older children took the highlighted letter from each word for their part of the hunt - as they needed to find out the name of another bunny.  

I then used some classy plastic wallets to put the clues in, and dodged the rain in the park attaching them to trees with a bit of ribbon. It worked really well - and the children had loads of fun.

This was so simple to do and so much fun!  Thanks Ruth!

Thanks for stopping by my blog - my mojo has been missing for a while but I've got a lovely crafty night planned tonight!
