Welcome, this week some new research which looks at the effectiveness of using family photos to relieve separation anxiety in early childhood settings and some fantastic Easter themed craft ideas to decorate the walls of your service.
Can family snaps ease separation anxiety?
In an effort to help small children cope with separation anxiety an early childhood education and care provider in London is decorating the walls of the service with enlarged images of the children's families.

Bright Beginnings Day Nursery in Twickenham carried out the trial in response to a survey of more than 1000 parents by photographic company Albelli, which found that 64 per cent of parents thought it would be beneficial for early childhood services to include family pictures within the setting.

Director at Bright Beginnings, Raj Mehat said they wanted to find out what kind of positive impact the photographs would have on a child's development and happiness.

Easter craft ideas
Who doesn't love Easter, a four-day weekend when you are legitimately entitled to eat chocolate, it's a no-brainer. With the cute fluffy bunnies and chicks and gorgeously wrapped Easter eggs, it is also a great source of inspiration for crafters.

If you are talking about Easter in your service you may like to try some of the following craft ideas.

Dyed Easter eggs: Brightly coloured dyed Easter eggs are an Easter staple for kids young and old. This link offers suggestions on a number of different ways to dye the eggs.

Paper Mache eggs: Kids adore working with squishy glue and this is a great project to stimulate the senses.

Egg tree: A group activity which makes a fabulous wall display.

Tissue paper eggs: The paper scrunching involved in this project will probably be just as popular as the gluing.

Sequin eggs: Add a bit of bling and a lot of mess to your Easter festivities with this fun but sticky activity.

Bunny rabbit hat: If you are doing an Easter hat parade then this project is sure to be a hit.

Bunny mask: Another great costume idea which the kids will enjoy making and wearing.

Rabbit puppets: Children two and older will enjoy decorating these cute little bunnies.

Thumbprint chicks: A quick and easy activity which will result in a whole family of gorgeous little chicks.
