When I was a child, we never had Easter Egg Hunts. Instead, my Mum would cut out different coloured teddy bears, and my sisters and I would each have to seek out the bears of the colour we were given. Once we'd found all the bears of our chosen colour, we would get a prize.
Taking inspiration from this, I've created this alternative Easter Egg Hunt printable!
than hunting for eggs, each participant can hunt for a
specific-coloured chick, and then cash them in for their chocolate egg
once they've found them all!
This is great if you only gift your kids one egg each at Easter, but want to give them the fun experience of an Easter egg hunt.
It also solves the problem of one child ending up with more eggs than the other!
I've included two versions of the same printable in this post: one coloured, one black and white.
The black and white version is here in case you'd rather print straight onto coloured card, or want to expand on the Easter activities with a colouring-in session before the hunt begins!

Remember how, back in November, I posted about destashing?
That I claimed to have a list of project ideas to work on?
Well, my friends, I finally used some of that fabric, and made this cute stripy pouch with an embroidered nautical design.
Summer might be months away, but dreaming of those warm and dry days is a nice way to forget about the grey skies and damp air, don't you think?!
Fabric for lining (I used thin polycotton)
5"-6" Zip (mine was old and a weird size)
Optional: thin ribbon
Optional: pinking shears
*I used some loose-woven neutral fabric, but it was a total pain in the butt to sew. I could have done with some interfacing on it! Lesson: take care in your fabric choices!
Okay, on with the tutorial!
