Easter Activities

This morning was a fun one as we did some egg activities at our house. We started with a practice egg hunt. The boys loved it! I thought since they would be hunting eggs with their older and more experienced cousins, then they needed a little practice. It went well. Pax was happy and content with just 1 egg. Holden wanted lots of help in finding the hiding eggs. He asked lots of questions instead of just looking for them. It made me laugh.
Next we made some EASTER EGGS! Such fun! Last year I did this with just Holden during Pax's nap. But I knew they would both be participating this year. And I figured it would get super messy. Jeremy suggested me doing it outside. :) But I opted for the floor of the kitchen and we all stayed pretty clean with some set rules (like no splashing in the dye). If Pax looks teary in any pictures, it's because he didn't like my rules and he didn't want to take turns with Holden. He had a little bit of a harder time with it but ended up having alot of fun. Here they show you their before eggs.
And into the color bath they go.
Then we had to wait a LONG 5 minutes. So we had a snack and sang Jesus Loves Me several times. And after the eggs were dry, the boys applied the silly face stickers. This was a kit. Ashamed to say I probably wouldn't have thought this up on my own. By I sure will next year!And the end result: a dozen colorful, funny-faced eggs!
And 2 happy little boys!
And, with our thoughts turned to Jesus and our hearts reflecting more on the cross during this weekend, I'll share one of my favorite scriptures.
“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to those who are being saved it is the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:18
