Five years ago, I posted a big list of 106 fillers for plastic Easter eggs. I don’t remember now what prompted the list, maybe an urge to cut down on the amount of candy my kids were eating or just a general feeling of being stumped in the gifting department. Over the years, I have gotten loads and loads of comments on the fact that there’s a pocket knife on the list (they’re dangerous! what was I thinking?!) and I explain to each commenter that a pocket knife is a perfectly reasonable egg filler for a tween or teen, all … Read more

Bring the Easter Story to Life with A Sense of the Resurrection

A Sense of the Resurrection teaches children about Jesus' death through real life sensory experiences.

We love holidays at my house. Obviously. Even though many all of the holidays have been difficult since my mom died, I think it’s so important to preserve my kids’ childhood celebrations. Holidays are magical when you’re little, and I want my kids to be little for as long as possible. During Advent, we focus on Jesus for the whole month before Christmas. We study his lineage through our Jesse Tree devotionals, and we talk about our excitement for His coming. We celebrate His birthday, and then Santa comes and brings lots of presents. I don’t think it’s confusing for … Read more

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

Easter Eggs Sensory Bin

Frugal Easter Egg Sensory Bin

The last time I put together a sensory bin for my girls was a disaster. Well, it was a disaster for Allie. Grace loved it. Like always, I failed to pack it up and put it away, so it’s still sitting in a dishpan in my dining room. I’m just on the ball like that. Anyway. I learned a little something from that St. Patrick’s Day experience and No Time for Flashcards. I put a few cups of fruity o’s (or whatever the generic Fruit Loops are called) in a bowl with a SOLO cup, a tiny scoop, and two … Read more

I like candy. A lot. Give me some chocolate and I’ll follow you anywhere. Okay, not anywhere, but many places. My kids like candy, too.
