Easter Goodness!

We love Easter at our house! I don't do a million decorations like Christmas but we do have lots of activities, pretty dresses and fun-filled baskets to look foward to.
First up, What holiday would be complete without Cards for Grandma
Trying to find a craft that fits ages 2-9 is a little challenging. Mae was not at all amused with this project. She kept reading the newspapers that we were using to protect the tablecloth!
It's just a handprint and cotton balls! Supplies needed: paint, foam brush, cotton balls, assorted paper,crayons, glue and googley eyes (optional)

Google-y eyes

Every year we do an Easter Egg Hunt but this year I thought it would be fun to do an Easter Countdown as well! I found the idea here simple-easter-countdown 

Each egg is numbered and has a verse relating to the last days of Christ's life and an object in it. For example: In the #2 egg "Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief
priests, and said unto them, “What will ye give me, and I will deliver
him unto you?” And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of
silver. Mathew 26:14-15" (And in the egg: three dimes.)

For this project you will need 12 plastic eggs, a marker or sticker numbers, the verse list (click the link above) and your objects (found on the verse list) 
Obviously, I'm getting this idea to you a little close to Easter, So you could make up your countdown eggs and do a scavenger hunt with them this weekend! (Not only does this reinforce the real reason for Easter but it's also a healthy alternative to candy-filled eggs!)

"He Is Not Here. He Is Risen!"
Luke 24:6

Have A Blessed Easter!


  1. Great idea with the eggs Sarah. Thanks for sharing this with me! Those little sheep are super cute. I might have to try that one as well. Thanks again!


  2. You're so dang creative! Love the sheep cards.


  3. Aw, these are really cute! I'm HORRIBLE about doing crafts with my kids: in other words, we never do crafts. This one doesn't look too hard and I'm sure they'd get a kick out of it. thanks for sharing, and for stopping by my blog today :)


Your Comments Make My Day! I always look foward to reading them! Thanks!
