::: magic wands perhaps?
Ester egg wrappers hold a certain kind of fascination for children. They’re bright and sparkly and the colours are very beautiful. For generations we’ve been carefully unwrapping our chocolate eggs in the hope of keeping the wrappers in one piece, to be rubbed smooth with the backs of fingernails and pressed in books for future use – often in pasting and collage activities.
This Easter Sunday was no different but instead of smoothing the papers flat, our little friend Kate took her brightly coloured foil …
and began to wrap it around some sticks she had discovered in the kindling box.
It wasn’t long before she had some rather lovely multicoloured stick!
After a while she asked if she could use some aluminium foil too, as the Easter wrappings were soon running low.
Kate explained it was best to carefully tear the paper into long strips and roll it very gently around the stick …
but not too tight, just squeeze it firmly or it might rip!
What beautiful sticks she made.
When Donna suggested they looked like magic wands she replied …
“Well you never know Donna … It is Easter after all!”
