Attack of the paper plates

We decided to have a little Easter party this week - admittedly, after Easter but when it comes so early what do you expect? So we entertained seven little girls (and two little boys) to an afternoon of easter nest making:



cress egg head construction:



and Easter bunny treasure hunting:


For once I had more activities planned than we had time for, so we ended up making the paper plate bunny masks the next day. This is what they were supposed to look like:



but this was what the girls wanted them to be:


Is it me or is there something reminiscent of a very scary film there?!

  3. I can definitely see the spooky side...although they do look pretty cute too. Amazing what you can do with paper plates isn't it?

  4. Such cute little pink noses.

    I am glad to see that your daughters use white paper cases for their cakes. They are obviously VERY well brought up.

  8. There is every chance you get away with a bank robbery in those masks!! The easter nests look very tasty though! Looks like you had lots of fun, which is the main thing (and hopefully not too many childrens nightmares!)x

  17. Love the masks! Although I know what you mean, sometimes when my boys put on a mask they freak me out a little too. Too many scary movies when I was a teenager, I think:-)

    I wanted to get around to making nests this year but never got around to it, maybe next year!

  21. Do you think they're scary because you know what's behind the masks?
    I think they look very cute :)

    I agree with Lucy - you are a great Mum to have an Easter party for them and a very organized one too!!

  23. LOL, yes, that last pic of the two in bunny masks has the faint qualities of those eerie clown faces in scary movies.

  25. I wouldn't like to bump into somebody wearing one of those bunny masks in a dark alley! And r.e. the post below: Were you not tempted to fill your bath with custard and have a paddle? That would be great fun :D
