Minion Eggs

What else can we do with those left over plastic Easter eggs?
So far we've made teacups and a basket of strawberry eggs.

The little guy loves the movie Despicable Me.  He thinks the minions are so funny.
Who am I kidding...I think they're funny, too.

Let's make some Minions.


I used half a blue egg, half a yellow egg, googly eyes, and black vinyl.   

Easy and fun. :)

Easter Preparations

The ladybug is quick to remind me that the Easter bunny will be here in just a few days.  Funny how she can remember that, but forgets to put her pj's in the hamper after getting dressed.  
Just sayin'.

So did you know you can mail plastic eggs?  Well I didn't until I saw it on Making Memories with Your Kids.
Last week we sent some to out of state cousins.  How fun would it be to see an Easter egg in your mail box? 
The Easter bunny kindly sent some to our kiddos too.


Don't get me wrong, we love the bunnies, eggs hunts, and baskets full of candy at Easter, but as the ladybug gets a little older I want to put more meaning into it.  Real meaning.

She's at the perfect age for this cross craft we did with oil pastels.  When she saw what the colors did when she rubbed her finger across them, she thought it was the coolest thing!

You can find out how to make one at Housing a Forrest. 


 I had never heard of an Easter garden until about a week ago, but I think it's the best idea for an indoor Spring garden ever!  Next year we'll plant it sooner so that the grass will hopefully grow in by Easter.

Even without the grass, I think it looks pretty.

You can find directions for making your own at We are That Family



Another thing I had never heard of until a couple weeks ago was Resurrection eggs.  As you read the story of Easter, you open these eggs that have items inside that relate to the story.  The ladybug LOVED this.  She was even able to tell me the whole story herself just by opening each egg and recalling what the item meant in the story.

This egg set you can find HERE.


And Easter prep just would not be complete without eating one two three green pastel chocolate buttercream eggs.  
An absolute favorite of mine since I was a kid.



What are you preparing for Easter?

Sweet Little Blue Birds


So on Pinterest I saw these super crazy cute blue candy birds from Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle.
Unfortunately, because of food allergies, having certain candy in our house can be a little tricky.

But I HAD to make something like those cute little blue birds.



Instead of tasty candies I used river rocks, which I already had anyway.  

A little cantalina blue paint, a black sharpie, and dab of orange paint later we had our own little birds.




I think they look sweet nestled in the tiny nest.

Easter Tea Cups


Care for a spot of tea?  

Sunghee over at Creativity in Progress made lovely little tea cups out of plastic eggs and I fell in love with them.  
Which, of course, means I must make them.





These little cuties are embellished with washi tape and other lovely embellishments.
A card stock butterfly folded in half creates the handle, and a large button is hot glued to the bottom.


I think we will have to have an Easter day tea party.
Fancy hats and all :)


Come Party Here:

Planting Donuts?

Happy April Fool's Day!
What tricks do you have up your sleeve today?

My little ladybug girl is so excited that today is "joke day."  
This is one we found on Family Fun complete with printable!
We love free printables!  :)

ladybug can not wait to hand these out...




Fill these printable seed packets with frosted cheerios and you are ready to fool your favorite somebodies!
We used white card stock for printing.
