A fun Easter activity Here's an activity we did several years in a row when the kids were younger. One advantage to making things a little sturdier the first time around is that you only have to do the chore once. But doing a one-time-use set of cards would work too. And I was nice and typed everything up, so all you have to do is go here to print them out if you want. (Sorry, but you'll have to do your own cutting and coloring.)
Directions: Print out pages. Cut out six egg shapes and six cards. Use cardstock and laminate first, if desired. Tape egg over clue on each corresponding card. Keep card #1 accessible, then hide the rest:
#2 at the washing machine
#3 by a window
#4 under Mom’s pillow
#5 under a couch
#6 by a Bible
Put a small treasure/treat in the egg bin in the refrigerator.
When ready to play, hand your children clue #1. After they unscramble the words, they lift up the egg to see where to go next. Continue until you reach the treasure.
And here's a new recipe we tried just this year that might make a fun treat. Steven called them Playdough Cookies, but they're really called "Springtime Slice-and-Bake Confetti Cookies."Remember to check out We are THAT Family whenever you're stumped for fun ideas, and you'll find plenty to keep you busy! This week she has a wonderful tip for using a whisk for dying eggs. We just may try that this year.
