Start Saving Your Eggs!
So you all know Easter is just around the corner right? 35 days until Good Friday!
I thought about how our family starts celebrating Christmas about 4-5 weeks before Christmas Day. Lots of family traditions, crafts, outings, celebrating. The Gift of Easter in some ways is probably more important than Christmas. The meaning of Easter is Jesus Christ's victory over death. His resurrection symbolizes the eternal life that is granted to all who believe in Him. He died for our sins and we have the gift of Eternal life because of that.
So for this month I will be posting some of the easter ideas our family will be doing. This post is a heads up for anyone else who wants to follow along.
Here are some links to some crafts we will be doing in the near future.
Start Saving your eggs.. this week instead of cracking eggs, I have been slicing the tops off, using to cook with, then wash egg in warm soapy water and leave to dry. Details will follow on how to make Carscarones - Celebratory Confetti Eggs

Grab some soil and grass seeds. Who knew growing grass was an easter activity? You know spring, new life etc...You need to start this craft around 2 weeks before Easter.

Soft Pretzel how to and recipe at The Artful Parent.
Pretzels originated as early Christian Lenten treats, designed in the form of arms crossed in prayer.
