Get crafty with the kids this spring with our take on a traditional Easter bonnet. When it comes to decorating – more really is more! As flowers jostle for space next to glittery eggs and beads. Get creative and have some craft-inspired play to keep those little munchkins out of trouble. Then why not do a photoshoot in the garden and share your pic with us using the hashtag #tasteiw !

You will need:
  • Bonnet style hats (we got ours online but you could get creative and use any hat you have – lockdown calls for flexibility – mum you got this!)
  • Pom-Poms
  • Fabric or fresh spring flowers (depending what you have in the cupboards, the garden or forage some on your daily walk – remember to source responsibly and only take one or two flowers per plant)
  • Mini eggs
  • Yellow fluffy chicks
  • Coloured tissue paper 
  • Ribbons
  • Glitter
  • PVA glue

Some of these suggestions may be harder to get your hands on the usual seasonal crafts, so why not make flowers out of paper, raid the button jar and even get the poster paints and felt tips out?

Simple, easy and great fun. Sit the kids down at a table with a wipe-clean tablecloth and clothes that they can get messy in. Give each child a hat, put all the different items in bowls with a small pot of PVA glue per child and then just let them at it!
