The sun is shinning and I’ve been inspired to hunt through our craft kits for some Spring and Easter themed stuff to get creative with the kids. At the bottom of the supplies were some plastic Easter Eggs in pale green for some reason the kids didn’t want to play with them last year so they’ve kept. Also were some orange forks (yes I really do keep random stuff for crafting!) so we got creative with a very quick and easy Easter Craft to make some “Carrot” maracas.

Thread the ribbon through the holes in the top of the egg (if your plastic egg doesn’t have any holes then you may need to create some. Secure with a knot or sticky tape.
