Turns out Easter’s less than two weeks away and we need to whip out some Spring crafts before the big day. Seems pretty feasible since we were literally in our pajamas until 1:00 today. Any later and I probably wouldn’t have changed at all. Except we wanted to play in the rain and I made the girls go to Costco. Since our goals are not that high and we’re relaxing to the max, I thought I’d get myself (somewhat) organized and jot down some realistic things we could accomplish in the next week. And then I can trick myself into thinking we’re getting so much done when I check things off the list like “dye some eggs” and “make Leah cry from sitting on a giant bunny’s lap.”
1. Bake Italian Easter bread
You can find the recipe here. It was seriously so easy, colorful and fun. Sprinkles are involved, so the kids will be game to help out. The end result looks a lot more labor intensive than it actually is, so go ahead and impress your family.
2. Paint wooden eggs
We picked some up at Target, but these are a better buy. Mya and I have been working on this throughout the week. Our kitchen table is now a craft zone, but so far no one’s complaining about eating on the floor.
3. Create a scavenger hunt
Growing up, I used to love this, so I can’t wait to do the same with the girls. Hopefully we can do it outside and not get too muddy, but that could be fun too.
4. Decorate a Bunny
I guess we’ve made this a tradition and Mya keeps asking me about it, so it’s gonna happen. I’ll probably pick one of these up at Target because… easy. You can check out her previous years’ creations here and here.
5. Display flowers… all day every day
Since our daffodils are comin’ in strong, you better believe we’ll have fresh blooms in a vase at all times. And if that’s not enough, we’ll access the flower section at Trader Joe’s to supplement. They seriously have the best flowers– inexpensive and they last a long time.
So there you have it. Our “lofty” Easter
basket bucket list– Spring activities that will be fun for the kids… and you too. If you’re feeling extra ambitious, you can make these Phyllo nests with raspberry eggs. Or you can just pick up some marshmallow peeps and call it good. That’s probably what I’ll do. Don’t want to push myself too hard. 😉 What are your Easter plans?
