Easter Eggs & Containers

A Medicine Hat provider submitted these cute Easter eggs and baskets, saying: “Easter baskets made from tuna tins and clothes pins (excellent fine motor activity for the kids) and Easter eggs dyed in regular dye and dyed using tissue paper and water (their favorite way to do it by far)”. Adorable!
