Easter wouldn't be complete without chocolate eggs and homemade Easter bonnets. We'd love to see your forays into millinery craftship. Post pictures of your eggcellent headgear here and on Thursday 28 March we'll toss them all in a bonnet and pull one out. The winner will receive a gorgeous Montezuma's Easter hamper containing chocolate bunnies, eggs, buttons and other goodies.

PLEASE NOTE: It's possible we'll love your photos so much that we select a few for a picture gallery or a Pinterest board. Please only post a photo if you're happy for us to use it in these places.

If making an Easter bonnet is completely beyond your ken, take a look at our simple Easter bonnet ideas guide.

Child will not stand still for picture, but you get the idea... The hat I made from paper mache, covered it in a cheap yellow duster. It is supposed to be a chick coming out of a shell...

This is our first joint effort at Easter bonnet. Sophia (soon-to-be 3) had lots of fun decorating it with eggs, chicks and flowers.

Our Easter Duck bonnet - we have a duck race each year at Easter where we release hundreds of plastic ducks in the river. Great fun and brilliant fundraiser. Don't worry, we do capture them all at the bridge. Our bonnet is reflecting the great race

Last year I made something small and intricate. It was ignored I think I've gone too far the other way this year and the Reception Class is going to be having Donnie Darko type nightmares. ho Hum.
