Easy Easter idea: Indian Chief eggs
These Indian eggs were quickly made using a black marker, some masking tape and a little feather or pipe cleaner. I put them in my kids' lunch boxes as a surprise, but I thought it would also be fun to make them for Easter. So easy, and so cute! xxx Esther

Stitch 'n Kids -- DIY Easter chicks from pom-poms
I remember making little chicks like these as a child! The idea is simple: make two pom-poms of different sizes, one forming the body and one the head, and sew them together. Do you recall how to make pom-poms? Cut out two rings from thin cardboard: a big circle (about 8,5 or 3 1/2" Ø) ...

Easter craft -- Bunny Masks
Inspired by the craft project I spotted on The Happy Home blog, I sat down with my boys this week to make Easter bunny masks. It was pretty easy... and once we created a mask template, the boys were able to cut them out and stick the cotton wool on all by themselves.  They were ...

Decorating Easter Eggs
Last week I got inspired by the lovely hand-painted Easter eggs by Laikonik that I saw on the Famile Summerbelle website. I had visions of sitting around the kitchen table with my kids producing one egg gem after another and hanging them all over the flat... But turns out fantasy and reality could not have ...

Egg Heads
Last Easter we decided to make some Egg Heads with the mustard & cress seeds we got in our lunchbox from Kew Gardens.  Now I'm not in any way saying this was an innovative idea -- most of you probably grew some of these little men/women yourself as children.  But for some reason my childhood ...

Butterhorns
Every Christmas and Easter morning of my childhood (and even still now), my mom made a fresh batch of cinnamon rolls called 'Butterhorns'.  The house would fill with the sweet smell of cinnamon and sugar, and we would all congregate in the kitchen waiting eagerly to eat them.  She iced them while they were still ...

Easter tree
We have a tradition here in the Netherlands: we put up an Easter tree. It's not really a tree, merely a couple of curly willow branches put in a vase. We hang colourful eggs from lovely ribbons in the tree, which have the symbolic meaning of new life on earth. Which reminds me - my ...

Pasen
Pasen in the Netherlands involves hiding chocolate eggs, but the only lamb we eat is in the shape of butter! Traditional Dutch Easter brunch takes place on a beautifully decorated table with candles, yellow flowers, brightly coloured eggs and an 'Easter Tree' (a few willow branches decorated with chocolate or wooden eggs). There are the ...

Pasqua
Easter is quite an important day in Italy given our Catholic inheritance. It comes at the end of Lent -- a period during which for religious reasons (or simply for tradition) many people make sacrifices and give something up... like sweets, or shoe shopping! During lent it is also quite common not to eat meat ...

Summer holidays! If you follow Esther and Emilie on Instagram, you’ll have seen a few happy photos of their two families together in France! It’s a sweet summertime tradition for them. Being on the opposite side of the world, I will admit it makes me feel extra far away and sad to miss out on these wonderful get-togethers. The kids are all growing up so quickly — I couldn’t believe how tall and grown-up Emilie’s girls have gotten. And speaking of tall — I’m pretty sure Esther now has at least two kids who are taller than I am. Like an old granny would do, I’m pretty sure I’d squeeze their cheeks and tell them all I remember holding them in my arms when they were just one day old!!! Anyway, we’re taking a couple of weeks off from blogging to allow Esther, Emilie and all of our wonderful contributors some time to enjoy a bit of summer holiday family time. We hope you’re doing the same! See you back here in a couple of weeks. Courtney xx @estherbabyccino @emiliebabyccino @courtneyadamo #babyccinokids

Fancy an easy-peasy, delicious, light, fudgy chocolate sponge cake? Easy enough to rustle up with a 3-year-old’s help too. It’s gluten-free for starters, vegan, and nut free too. 🤎 You won’t need any fancy kit, the preparation time is around 10 minutes, there’s no whipping, melting, or soaking overnight, and you won’t need to source any wacky ingredients from the health food shop. It’s also a robust enough recipe to work as either cupcakes, a sponge cake, or even a loaf. So visit our new blog post and get baking! @beesbakery #babyccinokids #babyccinoeats
