How to Set up Simon Says Easter Egg Hunt
First, grab some colourful construction paper in easter colours and cut out about 2″-3″ strips.
On each strip write out some funny short action for child to complete. Here are some examples:
- Do a cartwheel.
- Hop like a bunny to the next egg.
- Put your finger to you head and wiggle them around like bunny ears.
- Chirp like a baby chirp.
- Baa like a baby lamb.
- Wiggle your nose like a bunny.
- Do a log roll.
- Jump as high as you can.
- Flap your arms like a bird.
- Twirl around in a circle.
- Do a frog jump.
- Walk like a bear coming out of hibernation.
- Move your bum like you have a bushy tail like a squirrel.
Fill each egg with the note and candies, chocolate or a small toy.
Each time your child finds an egg and open it they have to perform the action like Simon says and then move on to find the next egg.
This idea will add tons of laughs and giggles to your Easter egg hunt and create memories they will never forget!!

TV Show: Curious Crafting
I’m so excited to finally share my new crafting TV show Curious Crafting which launched July 1 at on TVOkids and TVOkids YouTube!
Set in the ultimate crafting space, Curious Crafting is a short form pre-school age series about the joy of making crafts. I lead a rotating cast of adorable little preschoolers (including my own) making magic out of common household objects.
In each episode we transform recycled items into magical crafts like a milk carton school bus, paper bag puppet or cotton pad turtle. The crafters learn and laugh their way through each activity while demonstrating what their young imaginations can create.
Curious Crafting shares the adventure and joy of making art with takeaway lessons for creating crafts at home.
