It appears that Easter has totally and completely snuck up on me this year. One minute we’re signing Valentines and the next minute I’m shopping for chocolate eggs. Crazy, I know. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that we just had Spring Break or that there was a strike, or that my student teacher (who is delightful, by the way) is taking over some of my teaching time. Whatever the reason, there hasn’t been much time for pastel-coloured, Spring-ish, Easter craftin’.
It’s killing me though because my favourite sites are just brimming with such wonderful inspiration. If by some small miracle I can squeeze something in between now and tomorrow, I’ll surely hop to it.
Jordan Ferney is the Queen of all things crafty. Her carrots are a cinch and they’re filled with sugary goodness. Just how I like them.
Although the idea of blowing out and dyeing eggs with a class of first graders kiiiiiind of gives me heart palpitations, thanks to the fine folks over at Make and Takes – using puffy paint with hard-boiled eggs doesn’t seem so bad at all.
I just love the look of these eggs, too. I could keep them all season long in a bowl on my kitchen table. Oh, and big thanks to my friend, Brooke for passing this idea along. Brent and I had fun making traditional Ukrainian eggs a few weeks ago, but these are such a lovely, simple and modern alternative.
Despite the fact that these may have to wait for another year, I assure you at the very least we’ll manage to find time to polish off some chocolate. Priorities, I tell you.
P.S. Easter, last year.
