Spring Fun Round-up

I've been searching the gazillions of blogs out there for Spring/Easter crafts and activities. It's easy to find scads of tutorials for decor or accessories that you can make when your littles are occupied elsewhere, but we wanted to highlight some that you can do with your children. Here are my favorites:

Every year I wish for more vibrant egg dye. HERE is the recipe!

There's nothing my Rog loves more than drawing on the sidewalk. I'm highly considering making this egg shaped sidewalk chalk with him.

I adore this simple (cheap!) paint chip garland. (If you have older kids, they could cut out the eggs.)

I love Dana's peeps garland and no sew flowers (also both for older kids to help, although your younger ones could help you with fabric/color selection).

I think we are definitely going to do this printing with leaves project.

This is my favorite of all the ideas I found: a letter recognition game with plastic eggs. Blaine is going to adore it.

More ideas or links? Do share!

Thanks so much for including my paint chip Easter garland.

I've been a follower for a long time so it's a treat to see my stuff here!

My little guy is 18 months and we are always working on fine motor skills. We've been putting a piece cereal or two into the plastic eggs and then he shakes and opens them. We're still working on closing them after.

Jocelyn over at We Speak of Christ is doing a whole month of Easter post and activities, and she has a list of the best Easter books for kids, each paired with a little craft to do with your kids. SO great.
