In celebration of Easter, here is the activity we did today:
You’ll need: construction paper for the background, a tree, grass, tomb, stone to roll away, black circle, glue and something to put on your tree.
Hailey adding some grass while I read the story of Easter.
Hunter colored his paper first and then I helped him put it together. He added the flowers to the tree.

To make your cute little chick, you will need: construction paper in colors of your choice, some pretty Easter scrapbook paper, black marker, scissors and glue.
First I cut out an oval shape from the yellow construction paper to represent our chick. Then I cut out another oval, just a little bit bigger than the size of the chick to represent a cracking egg.
Hailey glued on her chick and the cracking egg, then she added eyes.
She added a beak and then some decorative eggs around the bottom of the paper.

I was looking some fun new ways to decorate some Easter Eggs when I saw this on Pinterest, so I decided we should give it a try.
First Hunter put some painter’s tape onto a piece of card stock.
Hailey added some painter’s tape to hers too.
Then using wet chalk, Hailey colored in her egg.
Hunter worked on coloring his too.
After a bit of help, this was Hunter’s egg all colored in.
We took the tape off and cut out the egg… and this is Hunter’s completed egg.

I love how using the wet chalk makes the colors look so bright and bold!
