    My Book Tie-Ins of the Week:
    We really enjoyed reading Easter by Gail Gibbons. It not only shares the Easter story, but explains where the word Easter and many of the symbols we related to Easter came from.
     The Easter lily and  eggs both symbolized new life. The book explains that candles remind people of light that comes darkness.
    Gail Gibbons book also covers many of the traditions related to Easter like dying eggs, egg hunts and rolls, Easter baskets with candy, and the bunny.
    JDaniel liked learning more about Easter and the story behind it.
    What did we do?

    Paint Chip Basket

    I cut out the parts of this basket and eggs for JDaniel and he helped me place the pieces and glue them down.

    Handprint Lily

    

    My sister and her boys came for a visit. She loves lilies. JDaniel and I made handprint lily to put beside her bed in the guest room as a special gift.

    Dying Eggs with Cousins

    

    JDaniel had the best time dying eggs with cousins. With all the boy elbows on the table it was amazing that we only had one spill.

      What a great idea for paint chips! This inspires me to step outside of using them for only banners! Thanks for linking up to The Kids’ Weekly Co-op!
