My great-grandmother on my mother's side painted these ceramic eggs. I love getting them out every year!
We started our Easter celebrating on Saturday since Daddy had to work half the day on Sunday. The girls really enjoyed learning more about the true meaning of Easter and we read a variety of books that told the story of Jesus. We even watched a couple of videos. I really liked the VeggieTales' "An Easter Carol" video.
We started our day making/eating Empty Tomb Buns and ended the night with making Resurrection Cookies. Pictures from our Easter Cooking are on this post.Below are other ways that we celebrated Easter at our house.
Easter CraftWe did this special craft that told the story of Easter with three pictures. The link to the pdf files I found came from here. Disclaimer: I know nothing about this site except that I liked the slides for our project.
Sweet Girl's craft: Mama and Daddy are to the right of Jesus. Daddy is sad because he saw Jesus on the cross. The Roman soldier bad guys are on the left. (I had to edit the picture some because Sweet Girl included names.) Below is Jesus rising from the grave.
Love Bug's craft: She really enjoyed coloring the picture of Jesus coming out of the tomb.
So both girls would get the same number of eggs (and a big one), I hid purple ones for Love Bug and blue ones for Sweet Girl.
What was left of our snow caterpillar. I thought it was so neat how the legs ended up after the snow melted.
Hunting for eggs.
The egg no one could find!
Daddy's huge snowball wasn't so big now, but it made for a good hiding spot!
The girls didn't find these eggs until closer to the end.
Love Bug checking out her prizes.
Nothing fancy this year. Just dye in a mug!
Sweet Girl checking on her first egg--blue of course!
Sweet Girl putting stickers on her eggs. She even colored on them with crayons!
Love Bug used the popular "grab your egg and drop it in the cup" technique.
Love Bug loved picking out stickers and decorating her eggs.
The "chick egg" that Sweet Girl put on display at her spot.
The final product. I love how they turned out!
We started off the morning with the girls checking out their Easter baskets. They loved exploring their baskets and checking out their goodies.
Next, the girls "unsealed" the oven so I could take out our Resurrection Cookies. Of course, we had to taste them!
Then, we listened to church online and ate breakfast before getting ready to go to Grandmommy's for more Easter fun!
One of the things in the girls' baskets--the true meaning of Easter. I put a piece of chocolate inside. :)
