DIY Easter Placemat

In the past we’ve had an Easter breakfast.  We’ve had to look for ways to keep the kids entertained, and this placemat was one of those ways.  One of our ladies found free online clipart, a dot-to-dot, a maze, and a word search and figured out how to resize and arrange them.  She also inserted […]

Easter Lesson Intro

To catch the kids’ attention and get them thinking in the right direction, I used the above prop to introduce our Easter lesson.  I held this little Easter basket filled with jelly beans and asked the kids what it was.  An Easter basket, of course!  Then I asked who had gotten or was going to […]
