a week five days until Easter-holidays, can you believe it? This spring has been so quick, March/April until today disappeared just like that. Tomorrow is the Palm Sunday, and traditionally children make pretty Easter-branches and go around to meet&greet their family, relatives and friends to wish them all the best for the year to come. The little visitors are always rewarded with some little surprises, chocolate eggs, little toys, maybe coins. My nephew has made his visit every year (this is the 6th), his visit a few years back can be seen here. Tomorrow will be the first time when they come as pair, my nephew and my little niece (6months), but I think it still is my nephew's show this year. He loves all kind of treasury hunts, and I am planning a little egg-adventure for him for tomorrow.
My nephew loves the movies Despicable Me 1&2, and especially the little yellow Minions. If you are not familiar with them, this could be a good start or this, they really are the cutest. And the movies are great too, we have watched both many times. Many. I couldn't find any Minions-themed eggs or decoration here, so I had to (once again) improvise. So just a quick glimpse to internet (many minions there) and I was good to go!
I am sure you all are familiar with toilet roll-crafts? You either have made some yourself or have received a family-heirloom-to-be from your children/grandchildren, I presume? These are quite popular in kindergarten (we used to have a huge basket next to front door, and parents brought rolls weekly for us to use, and all were used by the end of the season, talk about cheap and innovative crafts), and really a great way to create happy decoration with anything at home, no shopping needed.
I was absolutely sure I had both yellow and blue paper at home, but when I started my minion-making I couldn't find either. Typical. But a creative crafter gets over a little obstacle like this in a second, out comes regular printing paper, old watercolors and only a slightly over-sized brush. Yellow&blue here I come!
