Easter Activities

This is Olivia with Resurrection Eggs. We used these all week to learn the Easter Story. She got to make her own set too.

Olivia is coloring her Lent Tree. This was an activity that my friend found online. It had suggested activities for each day of Lent. For example, we did some lamb and butterfly crafts, sang hymns or praise songs, made cards and meal for others, baked hot cross buns, read books and watched a video, burned white candles, and then some of the harder ones were giving up something or doing something hard. Each day after we did the activities, she go to color the fruit on her tree.

We had Easter dinner with our friends, the Sorgius family. Before dinner was an easter egg hunt. This was lots more fun than the one we did last week. I think we will stick to this size hunt for a few years to come.

Olivia and I had a great time dyeing her easter eggs. I didn't get any pictures of the process as I was too busy helping her so we didn't make a mess. We did some glitter eggs and then she drew on others with a crayon before we dyed them.
