Easter is one of my favourite holidays to celebrate, it is such a wonderful time of new life. We are fortunate to have the week before Easter off as well. As usual, I plan to do lots of crafts, cooking and exploring with the boys. Seeing as Easter is a religious holiday for us, some of the activities are based in Christianity. I have provided alternative activities on those days. We may not get around to doing everything, but we'll sure try!
Colours: pastels (explore mixing bright colours with white)
Sensory: Garden sensory tub
Play dough: pink, purple and yellow (cooked play dough made with baby oil)
- Dissolving eggshells in vinegar
- Colour Easter eggs with natural dyes
Saturday: Dipped and decorated rice crispy treat eggs and bunnies, Kermit is able to read the recipe on the box, and he's been begging me to make these!
Sunday: family day!
Monday: Naturally dyed Easter eggs, find ideas for natural dyes here
Tuesday: Bunny hand prints, I think these are adorable! They might turn into cards!
Thursday: Coffee filter flowers and carrots (We may take the easy road and just colour the coffee filters with markers and spray with water)
Friday: resurrection cookies / Easter treats
Saturday: Stained glass crosses and eggs
Sunday: Easter egg hunt, get some great ideas non candy egg fillers here.
Monday: Field trip!
Red and yellow onion skins
(anything else you may need for natural dyes)
