Easter is on its way


I got reminded of Easter as I read Dawn's blog. My homeschool plan said the theme for the day was to be the sun. With my head empty of any nice ideas about the sun I opted for a few Easter cards. Who knows I might even make it to the post office in time!
First we sat down and looked at what happened during Easter according to the Bible (that's the kids' Bible under the cards). Luana was really interested in everything and she was able to tell me some of the things like when the women went to the tomb just to find it empty. I taught the kids an Easter song from my childhood and then it was finally time to GLUE!!!
I used little painted wooden egg halves as well as pre-cut felt shapes that we simply glued on the cards. This was very simple but the kids liked doing it. It obviously wasn't enough for my little crafting maniacs as they spent the rest of the afternoon asking me "which crafting are we going to do next?".

I have to admit I've been feeling really lazy about homeschooling (or -kindergartening) lately. It's like I don't have any nice crafting ideas right now and even if I come up with something I'm too tired or the kids are too cranky and I don't feel like doing any crafting with them. Maybe I should browse some websites for inspiration...

Those cards are so cute. That is some beautiful, thick felt you used. Here http://www.kidscraftweekly.com/newsletters.html is a website that I like to find craft ideas from.

Thanks Dawn! I like those little shapes too. Too bad we don't get anything of felt over here. I'll have to get more of these when we visit Finland.
