Easter is here again. We have had a lot going on lately and I am just now getting around to thinking about Easter related activities. Sadly, I think Kelsey being in preschool is making me lazy. Aubrey doesn’t doo much so there isn’t really a lot of need to come up with too many ideas. I am not even sure we’ll be dyeing eggs at this point and we decided to get classy and go out for brunch on Easter with the Easter Bunny. However, I did spend an hour helping to stuff 650 eggs with other moms today.
The most fun the girls have been having with the plastic eggs we have around the house is just playing with them as is. Kelsey, the 3 year old, enjoys organizing and sorting them. Aubrey, the 7 month old, likes to dump the carton of them out and mouth on them when she finally catches one.
I found someone selling a bag of plastic eggs for $2 a few months ago and made a capital and lower case matching game with some of them when I was working on letter recognition with Kelsey. I also made some with numbers on them – one half has a numeral and the other half has the corresponding number of dots, from 1 to 12.
For Easter morning, I already have some books and hair bows for baskets but I am also planning to stuff eggs with the pieces of a puzzle since Kelsey is into puzzles right now. I have a feeling, however, she is going to wonder where the candy is.

We are going pretty low key this year but we’ll still have a good time. It is Aubrey’s first Easter so we had to have a little fun with it. Happy Easter from our family to yours.
