Welcome back! This activity has absolute nothing to do with any of my books, but just a bit of fun for Easter.
7: Make a woolly Easter/Spring card!
So, I had some yellow wool and fancied making something for Easter, but didn’t really want to make the standard pom-pom chick, when I had the idea of using wool as a medium for colouring in, instead of crayon or paint (as you do!)
My first idea was to do this ‘freehand’; painting with glue direct onto the blank card, but this does take a fair amount of manual dexterity and may be a bit tricky for little finger (I’ll show you how I did this at the end), so I produced a couple of templates for you to ‘colour in’ with wool (or crayons if you prefer). or, of course, you can draw your own…
You will need:
- A print-out of the card or your own drawing
- coloured wool or string
- PVA or similar liquid glue
- Felt tips for details (optional)

And for those who want an extra challenge, here’s how I made the ‘freehand’ version:
