During one of our yard sale excursions, I came across a magazine I didn’t know at all: Bussi l’ours.
Apparently this children’s magazine of German origin was published in the second half of the 1980s in France. There were more than 100 issues published. I was already too old for that kind of reading which is why I didn’t know about it. A lot of people on Instagram told me it brought back memories.
I found these magazines so cute that I have scanned them to share with you. You can find the links at the bottom of the post.
The magazine is composed of games, activities and stories.
The two issues I found were Easter themed. Luckily, the activities had not been cut out. We found cards, tags and decorations to cut out.
I scanned one of the activity pages and edited it in illustrator into a coloring image.
Once we colored these pictures, we used them to make the craft proposed in one of the issues. We used them to present chocolates.
I cut out a big cardboard tube and some backgrounds from featherboard. I put it all together and covered it with pretty paper and masking tape.
Then we glued the bunnies onto the tubes. I had made sure to print the bunnies on the back of a decorated sheet of paper so it would look nicer.
We then filled the tubes with bags of small eggs and chocolates.
I let you discover in the magazines the other activities proposed. Click on the links to download.
