The Family night before Easter we always dye our Easter eggs. The kids are actually being able to do more, which is great for Mom : ) Jaylee and EJ that is, Jett just runs around and yells. This is a tradition we will have forever and I love it. (Minus the dye spills)
We have also tried a few new things this Easter. The big kids and I made paper Mache Easter Eggs. A lot of fun, but what a mess. EJ wondered why we had to put the newspaper in snot to put on the balloon. But, he dug in and had fun, and even blamed me when the goo was in his armpit! (How did I do that haha silly kid) For obvious reasons we don't have pics of the goo phase. Then they loved painting there egg.
Here is the finished project. They turned out so cute!
We also started off April with an Easter Countdown. I put together a basket of 12 eggs with an object and scripture inside. Each night we open the egg and see the object and read the scripture to count down to Easter. Each scripture has to do with The resurrection. It has been a fun great way to teach the kids a little more about Easter. Not just bunnnies, eggs, and candy lol.
We have loved these new Easter traditions, and hope to keep them every year. Hope you are having a great Easter season as well.
