As you know we don't do god in our house but I do like the older idea of a new beginning, a new start with the finer weather, a chance to enjoy the coming year. The children are exposed to the Easter story at school/nursery school and by the chocolate industry.
We made woolly baskets by soaking lengths of wool in PVA glue and draping them over upturned glasses and plant pots covered in cling film;
Elizabeth opted for a fine yarn with felt squares along it's length, she also picked the biggest pot on the table hoping she would get more chocolate (she didn't);
Francesca chose a deep pink yarn and I knittted her a coordinated chick, see the 'necklace' that Francecsa chose from the button box;
