We’re just a couple of weeks away from celebrating the first day of Spring in the U.K.The clocks go forward and we look ahead to longer daylight hours, welcoming new life in nature and eating lighter meals.As part of the BritMum’s Carnival I’ve put together A Spring In My Step post, showcasing all the best stuff parents do at this time of year.
Tomorrow is Mother’s Day in the U.K. so we’ll kick off with Mother’s Day And Easter Crafts from Sim’s Life Blog, lovely crafts for the kids to make for you and the family.Staying with Easter crafts, why not make these super cute Easter Crackers from Here Come The Girls or these super clever Carrot Baskets from HPMcQ.Of course Spring wouldn’t be Spring without butterflies, these toilet roll holder Spring butterflies and Spring dressing up crafts from Pink Oddy are perfect for those crafting.Maggy has a plethora of Spring crafts on Fun Craft Kids and her super jam-packed Red Ted Art.
Moving onto food and we start with these delightful Super Simple Easter Nest Cake Pops- No Bake! from Me And My Shadow.Or why not bake up a storm with these Hot Cross Buns With Marmalade Glaze from Kitchen Sanctuary or get the kids involved with Pretzel Chicks – A Quick And Easy Easter Treat from Mummy Alarm.How adorable are these Coconut Easter Nests from Cat Yellow Days and also her Simnel Cupcakes with Almond Buttercream and then take your kids on an egg hunt with the help of a Easter Bunny and Egg Hunt chart from Kiddy Charts.And if that wasn’t enough, here’s a fabulous Chocolate Easter Egg Pinata Cake and Mini Egg Chocolate Bark .
Once you’ve decorated your home with your beautiful Spring crafts and eaten way too much food then you need to head outside.I really love these posts about British Blues from Bavarian Sojourn and Learning With Nature– Tadpoles from Rainy Day Mum.
