Their farm was baked dry by drought. But with hope, faith, and the help of the bilbies, William makes an Easter surprise more magical than any bunny could deliver. (fishpond)
They began by reading the story of The Bilbies' First Easter, before moving into some fun hands on activities to help bring the book alive.
Everyone was keen to make their very own chocolate Easter Bilby.
Eating the chocolate, though was a whole lot more fun.
mmmmm Yum, these Easter Bilbies' are good.
In the story the Bilbies' paint rainbow coloured eggs to bring to William, for a simpler version the kids simply decorated their eggs with rainbow coloured felt pens.
The older members of the crew made themselves (with Grandma's help) a cute Bilby pencil topper.

A few simple hands on activities can really bring a book alive.
