time for another festive printable me thinks! meet the color-in easter egg box. download the PDF, print, color, cut it out, assemble it and await the bunny. why are some printables no longer free? please note: i do not offer tech support, or customization on printables.
don’t forget to add your name or the bunny might give you the kind of eggs you don’t like. or maybe you could write someone else’s name and surprise them by pretending you’re the easter bunny!
have fun coloring, and here’s hopping (arf!) it gets filled up with delicious treats soon! what are your favourite easter eggs? i love kinder chocolate eggs by ferrero, they used to be available here in australia as ‘noggi’ eggs but now i have to rely on the kindness of europeans to satisfy my insatiable lust for praline! mmmm praline.
a long time agoin the kingdom of make believable knitsthe children declared their independenceand moved across the valley to live with the friendly animals.they were happy until autumn when it came to their noticethat the animals coats were growing thicker and warmerwhile their own clothes were getting thinner.
as winter approached, envy grew into hostility,until the animals, alarmed for their lives,sent the tiger in delegation to persuade the childrenfrom persisting in their foolishness.
“children” said the tiger,“your pride threatens the peace of our land.rob us of our coats and you rob yourself of friends,and when our coats wear thin on your backs youwill be lonely and cold too. let us carry you home where youcan enjoy the fruits of the affectionate adults.”
the children heard his words and metin council to deliberate the matter.a few thought it more romantic to sneak homeunder cover of darkness and gather yarns to knit forthemselves. but the majority said this was not a timefor romance. “all we can knit anyway is scarves and whowants to go around all winter wrapped in a scarfwhen we could have cardigans and dresses and caps and slacks.let us return and reconsider independence when weknow better how to care for ourselves.”
secretly relieved at being outvoted,the few joined the many and they all set out at onceastride the larger animals. the adults were likewiserelieved and decided henceforth they wouldtry to give their children a greater sense of freedom.
and so you will notice as youread through our book that while the children andtheir animal friends play happily together,the grownups are not anywhere to be seen.they are behind the scenes knitting.
