Felt Book - Decorate Eggs for Easter

A cute spring idea for your little ones. Holly from Chez Beeper Bebe, has an adorable tutorial for this felt egg book, that lets your kids decorate eggs over and over. Cut out all sorts of shapes and let their imaginations run wild, and when you’re not decorating you can store all the little pieces in the handy pocket at the back. Such a great idea, and beautifully crafted.

More eggs! I know everyone is partial to the chocolate variety, but these knitted ones are pretty sweet. Why not mix it up a bit in this year’s Easter egg hunt, and throw in a couple knitted eggs to ease everyone’s sugar high. Or hang them from a couple of branches and make your very own Easter Tree.
