Can you believe it is March already?
And can you believe that Easter is only four weeks away? Three weeks away if you are like me and don’t count this week because it’s half over anyway!
I’m not ready!
I’m not ready for our summer to end, I am not ready for the end of our first term at school, and I am certainly not ready to think about Easter!
Well, except for the hot cross buns, I’ve been thinking about those, and consuming them since January!
But if I must contemplate the coming of Easter, then the least I can do is make some Easter play dough mats!
My play dough mat co-colaborator (aka Noah, my five year old) was at school when I designed this new set of play dough mats, so he got a great surprise when he got home and found them all set up on the table waiting for him.
Do you have an Easter hat parade where you live? Our school does one every year for the juniors and it’s lots of fun, so the first play dough mat in this series is an Easter hat to decorate.
Of course it’s not Easter without eggs, and it’s lots of fun to decorate your own Easter eggs, even play dough ones!
Does the Easter bunny visit your house? What does he look like? Does he have long ears like these?
Easter doesn’t happen during spring time for us in Australia, so perhaps it won’t be a chick that is hatching out of this egg?

It was so nice to spend some time creating with Noah and playing play dough.
Of course my big kids are ‘too old’ for play dough, but they’ll have a bit of a play, just to keep their little brother company.
