Are you looking for something to keep the kids busy during this Easter weekend? All you need is an egg box, a craft knife or scissors, some paints and any other crafty bits you have lying around the house.  It’s really easy to do and so many cute animals can be made from egg boxes. How about a mouse…or a ladybird…or, in the true spirit of Easter, a chicken?

Below you will find what we hope is a self explanatory  “How to” guide on building your very own Easter bunny egg cups, some cheeky little mice and “fluffy” chick. If nothing more we’ve given the kids something to do for the next hour. We’d love to see your marvellous creations – send them on through to amy.w@sts-uk.com.
