Oh Boy, do I love Easter! I love the colors. I love eggs and rabbits and birds. And Jesus, of course. It’s such a cheerful, lovely holiday. This year, though, I’m up against something new. You know I love my kids in matching outfits, right? I bought cute striped polo shirts for the boys, and matching striped dresses for the girls to wear on Easter this year. It was quite a coup to find all those matching clothes in such a wide variety of sizes. But then the thought occurred to me: York is 12. And will be passing the sacrament this year. Which means he has to wear a white shirt. Which means he will not coordinate. Which means I am really angry.
Ooooh well. At least they’ll all match for pictures.
Back to more important things. Here are some fun Easter crafts. Nice and easy, just how I like ‘em.
A nest with eggs is one of my favorite things and this one is perfect in so many ways. It’s made from chocolate covered-pretzels (love those) and filled with peanut butter M&Ms (the best M&M there is, in case you didn’t know. These are the Easter version which are egg shaped and speckled.)
What an adorable Easter basket! Here’s the great part: it’s made out of Post-it notes. Brilliant.
Jelly Belly bracelets! These will give candy necklaces a run for their money. Check out the tutorial here.
