Easter crafts with Leanne Cusack

on April 15, 2014

CTV SegmentToday, my two young daughters and I were thrilled to be invited back to chat with Leanne Cusack on CTV News at Noon in Ottawa.

Our focus today was craft and activity ideas for Easter. The girls and I talked about dyeing eggs with natural ingredients – using beets, red cabbage, turmeric and coffee – and how to make an Easter basket using paper plates. We also suggested a non-cavity-producing gift idea – homemade playdough, which can be funked up with glitter and even fragrances for a fun effect.

I recently posted step-by-step instructions for two Easter-themed crafts – a “stained glass butterfly” and a bunny candy-holder (or placeholder for an Easter table), which we talked about on today’s show as well.

As always, Leanne was a warm and wonderful host, and we all had a great time. You can watch our segment from today right here.

    Great job ladies and awesome ideas as usual!!! The eggs turned out so pretty!!! Something to definitely try out this week!

    • Thanks, Penny! The eggs were a lot of fun…we experimented with what worked and didn’t so that you don’t have to! 😉 My advice – stick with the beet juice, red cabbage juice, turmeric and coffee – the other veggies didn’t do much for us!
