Paper Hand Flowers

Spring is rolling in and we're all staying safe at home because of the pandemic, so we could use some creative ideas to celebrate together or to reach out to the friends & family we can't visit in person! It seemed the perfect time to share an activity I first posted on this blog 10 YEARS ago!! (We originally did this in February of 2010, when my kids were much smaller than they are now)

This is one of those activities we always remember, so it's a good one! All you need is some coloured paper, straws, and scissors! Then you can use these cute flowers for decoration, for fun, or a colourful surprise for friends, family, or neighbours!

Prepare to celebrate Spring early! (you know we're all ready for it.. at least those of us who are experiencing cold weather ;)

Family Easter Service Project Activity

Several years ago, I shared a service-oriented family night activity over on Jedi Craft Girl's blog. I've noticed that my "You've Been Egged" printable has been popular lately, so I thought I'd share that family night activity with you here on the blog today!  Jedi Craft Girl is posting the 8th year of her "Walk With Jesus" blog series this year, so be sure to check that out for some great new ideas, too!

Preparation:


You’ll need 12 plastic Eggs & the items needed to create this Easter countdown. You can find a list here as well. – Prepare some small slips of paper and something to write or draw with for each family member. – Have an empty box or bowl ready. – Print the handouts and the “You’ve Been Egged” note.
