Today’s programme introduces the letter Ee, the colour white and number 5.
There is also a guest! A Jumble Tuft Easter Bunny who brings lots of Easter Eggs.
Lizzie shows you how to make some rather cool eggs and also a delicious quick and easy desert.
Lots of extension activities.
This link takes you to today’s programme.
Don’t forget there are lots of Lizzie Witch and Jumbles Books to enjoy . (See the ‘books’ page on this site.). Some of the books are also available on Amazon as ebooks.
Happy Easter from Jumble House!
I love this display because it’s so fresh and spring like.
It’s also fun and cheap to make.
I always like posting something which involves children helping and this post is no exception. With help even the youngest will enjoy making the flower petals from coffee filter bags and they will learn a little about chromatography at the same time! The video instructions are on the link below.
Putting the flowers together is more tricky and a task for older children or adults.
The bowl is made entirely from string which is soaked in glue and wrapped around a balloon. The fun bit that kids love is the popping of the balloon once the glue has set!
The level of difficulty depends on the size of the balloon. For the blue bowl featured above the balloon was well inflated making it trickier to handle.
At Christmas we followed the same procedure to make baubles but using much smaller balloons which are easier to handle. If your children are small my suggestion would be to help them make the smaller bowls which can be used for biscuits or Easter Eggs while you make the trickier large bowl.
The instructions to make the string balls are given in ‘child friendly’ format on the link below. To make the balls into bowls all you need to do is cut them in half using either very strong scissors or a craft knife and then neaten the edges.
I hope you enjoy. If you do please add a nice comment !

Fun activity which can be adapted to suit all ages.
We always recommend adult supervision.
Uses shaving foam, food colours, hard boiled eggs. We definitely advise wearing disposable gloves unless you don’t mind your fingers looking like the eggs themselves!
We use hard boiled cracked eggs. The colour can’t penetrate the shell but stains the egg white because it, like your fingers, is a protein! Thus the spidery pattern.
The unde-fives will love playing with the shaving foam.
Older children will take up the challenge to try out different ways to colour the eggs. Onion skins are good. (Boil them in a little water before adding the cracked eggs.) Frozen fruits of the forest and fresh berries give varying degrees of pink and purple. (Simply leave the cracked hard boiled eggs in the fruit mixture overnight)
Everyone will find the video fun!
Please note that the colouring does fade.
