Lots of lovely links to Easter ideas today. It seems like most people are on holidays, so here are lots of things to read and do with kids.
- Deb from Science@home looked at the calendar and the Timing of Easter.
- Marita from Stuff With Thing has been creating Easter Bonnets from items sourced at the Op Shop. She’s trying to teach her girls that recycled items are best and create Easter Bonnets that can be used in years to come.
- Monique at Your Cheeky Monkey found out why Hot Cross Buns are special, and some easy instructions to make your own Easter Gift Tags.
- Nurturing Forests is wondering about the debate about the celebration of Easter in Long Day Care.
- Narelle at A Bunch of Keys shares a kid-friendly craft activity – how to make an Easter chicken using the kid’s hand prints.
- She also has the most gorgeous Batik eggs, given my kids’ love of candles we’ll be doing these ones.
- Deb Chitwood at Living Montessori Now has links to lots of Montessori-inspired Easter activities for home or school.
- To make a change from all the lovely decorated eggs, the Science@home girls dissolved egg shells and made Bouncy Eggs.
- Jeannezoo at Zella Said Purple has Easter with a twist – an art/science project with 4s/5s to “study baskets and anything that carries anything else”. We research items, make lists of features, then design our own “carrier” using paper, tape, cardboard, rope, paint…voila! An Egg Collector Basket for Easter
- Catherine from Adventures with Kids has hints for a great Easter egg hunt, whether it’s for a party or your traditional family celebration.
- Another kid-friendly one from A Bunch of Keys, wheat is a sign of new life at Easter. This kids planted wheat in some old egg shells to make ‘egg heads.’
- And a final Easter Basket idea at Science@home, making them from handmade paper and embedding seeds to be planted after the festivities are over.
Now you have more than enough to do leading up to Easter, have a great holiday!
