Project: day 130: get crafty/ the meaning of Easter/ a simple craft and dessert in one to teach the story of Easter through colored jelly beans!
Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1
• Would I do it again? yes. It is so easy to get sidetracked from the real meaning and story of why we celebrate Easter, but doing this craft/activity helps keep things in focus!
• What I would do differently: do it every year as an Easter family tradition, as well as have printable versions of the poem to hand out to relatives and friends 🙂
• Items used: jelly beans, ice cream cones, twizzlers or licorice, as well as the cute idea and poem behind the meaning of each colors go to: http://beinglds.blogspot.com/2011/03/telling-story-of-easter-with-jelly.html and poem here: http://www.dltk-holidays.com/easter/jellybean.htm
Until ipinterest tomorrow!

  • Project: day 128: get crafty/ simple easter or spring table decor/flower arrangement with gerber daisies, peeps, and jelly beans!
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1. This one was super easy!
  • Would I do it again? yes, you all know I love the glass within a glass trick. It’s so fun to stick fun little festive decorations on the outer glass and not ahve to worry about the flowers dying too soon!
  • What I would do differently: change it up for each holiday, which I have been doing so far!
  • Items used: peeps, jelly beans, gerber daisies, small vase on the inside with water, and a larger outer vase to hold all of the “goodies!”

Until ipinterest tomorrow!

  • Would I do it again? YES! The girls loved these (of course they did, there was chocolate ;), and they are too cute!
  • What I would do differently: we just microwaved them and it worked out perfectly, but actually doing them with our fire pit would have been pretty awesome too
  • Items used: graham crackers, Hershey’s chocolate bar, different colored Peeps, and the adorable idea from: http://eclecticrecipes.com/peeps-smores-for-easter

Until ipinterest tomorrow!
