Easter surprise craft

There’s so many reasons to be exited for spring and Easter! There’s the gorgeous spring weather that finally let’s us explore nature and the outdoors, the traditional egg painting and the egg hunting with kids. Then there are Easter family gatherings and last but not the least, new Amazon’s award winning children’s series springtime special, the Tumble Leaf ” Spring-a-ling Surprise”!
And while I’m quite strict when it comes to screen time and kids, I’m always so happy when I can find new educational and well made kids shows!

So to celebrate spring and Easter, we got inspired by this sweet whimsical and beautiful episode, and decided to make our own version of the Tumble Leaf Easter eggs. And my girls could not have been happier!

So if you your kids still don’t know the Tumble Leaf series, then let me assure you, that they’ll love it! This series is beautifully made, with gorgeous aesthetics and captures my kids attention every single time! But what I love the most about it, is how it inspires my girls to craft and play after they finish watching it! And when I look at them, concentrated and with their eyes wide opened, it melts my mama’s heart!

Je t’aime means I love you. A valentines day card for dad.

Valentines day card

This valentines day card we made with my girl last week for her Papa. I like this kind of crafts that take a bit more time. They let her practice her fine motor skills while she’s having fun creating something special with a little bit of my help .
So first what you need to do, is to draw a heart for your child. Then help them roll little balls out a of tissue paper. When it seemed like you have enough , let them glue the little bolls inside the heart.



When this step is done, cut out the heart, and let your child glue it on the nice card stock. Give them a pretty pen, and let them decorate around the heart. Lily had fun at this step, and I kind of had to stop her from decorating the heart as well.


On the inside of the heart she had glued another little heart, and then I asked her if she wanted to say: I love you dad ( in French, since she speaks French with her dad) or kisses. She decided on I love you, so here it is :


We had a lot of fun preparing this card 🙂
