Easter Table Ideas for Kids

I remember hunting eggs when I was a kid.

We hunted the good old fashioned hard boiled eggs.

No plastic candy filled eggs for us.

We’d hide them and hunt them until they were rotten.

And there were always a few that we could never find…

…until several days later…

…when we would be retrieving a ball from the monkey grass and the smell would knock us over.

Or my Dad would hit it with the lawn mower…that never went over well.

Ahhh…the memories! 🙂

Carrot Placemats

Carrots hold a special place in my heart.

I’ll never forget when I was about 6…

…my friend Kelly and I were playing restaurant in her backyard.  We were pulling up various weeds and making “salad” out of them. The goal was to pull up the weeds roots and all.  On occasion there would be a tiny onion on the end of one of those weeds.  Those were very valuable in the “salad” world of a 6 year old!

But one timeone time we pulled up an actual carrot

…and that my friends is gold in the salad making world of a 6 year old and I will NEVER forget it.

Carrots have held a special place in my heart every since. 🙂

So here is how to make a carrot placemat.

How to Make Felt Chocolate Bunnies

Back 2 years ago when I started this blog…

…I knew nothing of camera settings and photo editing.

I’m still no professional, but I have learned a bit.

{And I still have A LOT more to learn!}

But I’m going to pull 4 pictures out of the vault…to show you how to make these chocolate bunnies.

Be kind. 🙂

How to Make a Mini Easter Basket

I haven’t been around much for the past couple of days.

My sweet mama had surgery on Monday.

4 1/2 hours of surgery.

She’s going to be ok.

She’s a trooper.

But more than that…the Lord is good.

And if you want to add someone to your prayer list…her name is Gloria.

I shared their home a while back…and shared how my parents were a lot like the Cleavers…and we look forward to her being about her normal “June” ways soon! 🙂

You can see their home HERE.

But for today I will share a super quick, fun Easter project.

How to Make a Bunny Wreath

I was pulling out my Easter decorations today when I came across this wreath.

It will always hold a special place in my heart.

It was one of my first posts when I started blogging about 2 years ago.

{I can’t believe that I’ve been blogging now for 2 years…where does the time go?!}

So I thought I’d share it with you again today…

…because “Hippity-Hoppity, Easter’s on it’s way!”
