A Week of Easter Crafts

Easter is my favorite holiday.  I like it even more than Christmas.
To get our Easter spirits going, we have been making Easter crafts to decorate the house all week long.  And having so much fun doing it!
Painted eggs – plastic eggs on which I hot glued white beans and then turned the kids loose with the paint.

I love how they turned out.

String Eggs – this is one that I remember doing in YWs back in the day.  It is embroidery floss dipped in glue and wrapped around a balloon.

Let it dry overnight, pop the balloon, and voil√† – pretty eggs.  We hung them on some dead branches we found in the woods.

Paper bunny and chick banners to go over doorways.  Cute and simple.

Now our house is full of spring time and all the pretty colors that go with it.  I think we’re ready to get started on our weekend of Easter celebrations!

I enjoyed sharing Easter with you and family. Your Passover Feast was just unbelievable. Hope you'll list your recipes, especially for the unleavened bread and cheese dip and desert. It was all so wonderful. Loved every minute. Have to come back soon to get my clothes I left. Love you.
