Cute Popsicle Stick Easter Bunny Craft

When I was a little girl, my mom made this adorable bunny out of popsicle sticks and gave them as gifts to everyone she knew. I know she kept one for herself because my sister found it in her things, and I know she gave one to Old Grandma because she still has hers, too. I imagine that she gave them to my Granny and who knows who else. She was a very generous person. The Easter bunny’s face was attached to a baby food jar, and she kept paper clips and push pins and other small things in hers. … Read more

Making the Most of Easter at the Last Minute

Today is Good Friday, and I’m on the Tommy Nelson blog talking about creating an especially fun and meaningful Easter with your family, even at the last minute. Here are some easy ideas for making the most of Easter at the last minute 1. Turn off all the lights. There was a period of darkness when Jesus died, right? So don’t use any lights tonight. Do everything by candlelight and remind your kids that the world was dark before Jesus died for us. 2. Read books. Reading is always a good idea. Two of my favorite Easter books are God … Read more

Lamb of God – Sheep Craft for Preschoolers and Older Kids

Lamb of God - Sheep craft for preschoolers and older kids

The next day John [the Baptist] saw Jesus coming toward him and said, – Look! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” – John 1:29 NLT I like sheep and lambs. I think they’re cute, and they’re synonymous with spring, which has been sorely lacking in my part of the world this year (until this week, that is). Having seen lots of cute lamb and sheep crafts on Pinterest recently, I came up with a little lamb project for my girls to do. I had intended to write Lamb of God on their pink hearts and … Read more

Cross Resist Paintings for Preschoolers and Big Kids

How to do Cross Resist Paintings for Easter or any time of year

This is one of those projects that I’ve been meaning to do for a long time. We tried some resist painting using stickers a few months ago. It went well at first, but the stickers got too wet and let behind half of the sticker paper on the canvas. Someday, I’ll blog those pictures. The finished paintings look great, but the process was more difficult than I expected. Because we were making crosses this time (for Easter but really, is there a time of year when the cross is not timely and relevant?), I knew painter’s tape would work out … Read more

Rainbow Button Craft – An Easter Egg Craft

Rainbow Button Easter Egg Craft

Sometimes, when Grace and I are really lucky, Allie meanders down the steps after lunch, lays down on our overstuffed chair, and falls asleep. I say it happens only when we’re lucky because – although we love her madly – Allie can be a veritable distraction when Grace is trying to get her schoolwork done. She’s a little past the halfway point of first grade, and she is getting in to new topics, things she doesn’t already know. She needs to focus. I suppose you could argue that I need to do a better job of occupying Allie while Grace … Read more

Decorate for Spring with a Homemade Flower Garland

I’ve had enough snow for 2010, thankyouverymuch. It’s March. March means spring flowers, spring colors, spring weather. I’m ready for Easter eggs and Easter bunnies and Easter grass. I am pretending that it’s spring, even if the weather isn’t cooperating. We’re expecting more snow this week. I am celebrating pretending it’s spring with a with a homemade flower garland. I made it myself with minimal time and no expense whatsoever. I hung it in my big front window so that I can look at it often. Here’s what I did: Homemade Flower Garland for Springtime Decorating Materials Two pieces of … Read more
