"Egg"stravagant Easter in Winnipeg

March has come and gone and still no baby. Looks like he'll be an April baby. Hard to believe it's April with all the snow still on the ground!

But that's okay. April is one of my favourite months! It's all about spring cleaning, flowers, and of course Easter! And what better way to start teaching my daughter all about Easter then with some Easter crafts!

So I checked out's blog for some inspiration and ideas. I found a craft that was perfect for my 2 year old toddler and was absolutely adorable! It's called the 'Egg Carton Easter Chicks'. You can find the instructions for this craft and lots more on the arts and crafts blog

  1. Good luck on the new baby. I used to be a Momstown member in Newmarket/Aurora but then I moved to the USA. I had great times. Good luck with your chapter. Cute craft. I'd love it if you checked out my site
