Free Cute and Colorful Easter Printable

Free Cute & Colourful Easter Printable

Easter is at the end of March this year…yes that’s pretty soon!  I didn’t want it to jump up and surprise me.  There is nothing worse than leaving it to the last minute and having to rush out and buy the (usually horrible or hugely expensive) left over eggs at the store.  So I decided to get organised! I had a great time creating this Easter Printable to share with you all.

The colours options are endless and so much fun to mix and match. I might have to make another Easter printable for next year.

These are for my Sister-in-law’s four kids, I like to get them similar but not exactly the same presents so no-one feels hard done by.  I also like to keep Easter presents pretty small and inexpensive with seven nieces and nephews and not to mention my two, it can easily get out of hand!

This year I decided on some bright large plastic cups which conveniently came in a 4 pack.  With four colours the kids actually like! And the great part is they each have a new cup they can use for the rest of the year too.

Inside each cup is a milk chocolate bunny, a couple of marshmallow eggs and a little Cadbury Caramello egg.  Not a whole lot but plenty of chocolate for little people, and not so little people too I suppose.  And they get to keep the cups which are always handy for picnics, parties and camping too!

I decided on making an Easter egg shaped printable label for the cups.  Which of course I have also turned into a pdf to share with you all. You can download your Free Printable Easter Egg Tags by clicking the link.  I have placed each one in its own oval to make them easier to cut out.  If you want the name printed you can save a copy in whatever format suits you to add the names on. I chose to hand write mine in fine tip neon pens.

After cutting and writing on the children’s names, I stuck two small pieces of double sided tape on the back.  I didn’t want to use glue or anything that might be hard to wash off later when they use the cups.  Then just stick in place.

Trip to the Tairawhiti Museum Gisborne NZ

Tairawhiti Museum Visit
My sister rang this morning while I was taking the kids grocery shopping (ugh!) thought I would get in early before it got hot and busy!  She wanted to go to the Tairawhiti Museum today, she had heard that local children were free on Monday’s (maybe just in the school holidays) and it turns out adults are free too.  Since I have only ever been to the cafe there I jumped at the chance.

There was a whole room dedicated to cameras and photography.  Including a cute backdrop with ‘olden day’ dress ups you could put on.  I love how interactive museums are becoming, so much more fun especially for the kids.

It really makes you appreciate the smart phone rather than having to lug around one of these beauties.

There were some great shots of our main street from just a few years ago.  I think Harry was in a face pulling mood today!

This gorgeous replica is of the ‘Star of Canada’ part of which has been rebuilt as part of the museum.  The details in these models is amazing the photo just doesn’t do them justice!

There are even the gorgeous plaques of the original shipbuilders.   So I guess the Star of Canada was built in Belfast Ireland…wouldn’t have guessed!

Captain Harry sure was keen on taking charge!

But what really got me was the attention to detail on the Captain’s deck of the boat.  Image how much work this would have been before modern tools were invented!

Oh you just have to love a port hole!  Esepecially with a gorgeous view of the Taruheru river!  It always reminds me of those childhood day dreams of being at sea…

Now for the more sewing related find…check out these two beauties I found in a very dark room.  The lighting made them stand out beautifully!
This really was only a taste, and a great morning was had by all.  I would like to go again without the rugrats so I can actually read a little more about the pieces!  If you’re ever in this neck of the woods check it out.
