Here are some hilights from this week:
On Monday, we made paper plate bunnies like this.
On Tuesday, we made paper bag clown puppets. I found the template here.
On Wednesday, we melted down old crayons to make new, fun crayons. We used beach themed candy molds, and plan to give some to each of the girls' cousins when we have our big family beach trip in May. Here are some pictures from that day.
Then, yesterday, I spent the day shopping in the big city with my grandma, and left a small activity with the babysitter. I had them decorate plain white bags that were going to be used for a special surprise later. Joel has started planting season, so he has some late nights for a while. I read this idea at Homespun Heart and knew my girls would love it. . .
I put them in the guest room to get their pajamas on and play with a puzzle while I got everything ready, then I took them outside to this:
That's our car with all our blankets! We had a drive in movie night. Mary Helen was beside herself with excitement! We curled up together and watch the Barbie Swan Lake movie on our portable dvd player. Their bags that they decorated were filled with popcorn and I found some adorable cow cups on clearance at Target. We had a blast!
Today we are going to try to make sidewalk chalk eggs like I found at Skip to My Lou, and tomorrow we are going to dye Easter Eggs.
