Easter Egg Hunt

THE day dawned brightly for our Easter Egg hunt and the children gathered excitedly. After a short circle of spring and Easter action-songs and fingerplays, the children departed with some parents on a walk, while the rest of the parents played the Easter Bunny. We had all kinds of gifts to hide, donated by the parents and all obviously prepared with much love: butterfly-shaped cookies, beautifully dyed hard-boiled eggs, lollipops, painted wooden eggs, felted butterflies, handmade bags containing wildflower seeds, handsewn felt leaf pockets with a tiny ladybird hiding inside.

Naturally the edible goodies didn't last long, but the seeds are already planted in our garden and the butterfly, wooden egg and ladybird have pride of place on our nature table.
