Yes, one day this stay home business is going to be just a memory…Until then I have many Easter Projects that you can enjoy with your family and kids. And you know kids love Easter projects and Easter eggs.
Hello my dear readers,
Today is all about kids, Easter projects and Easter eggs.
So, let’s start with our first project.
Dye Easter Eggs With Rice
For this project you need only 2 ingredients:
eggs (boiled) – use as many as you want to
First you will need to boil eggs and cool them for a few minutes.
IMPORTANT! You want eggs to be warmer because the color will stick better.
How to prepare colored rice?
Pour 1/2 cup of rice in a bag #1 and squeeze a liberal amount of red food coloring into it.
Shake the rice so it is coated with red color.
If you have 4 kids, let each kid make their own bag with their favorite colors.
So, the bag 2 can be with blue color, bag 3 with pink color, bag 4 with green color and so on.
You can make as many as you want to. Or you can use just one color. It is your choice.
After you made bag 1 with red color, start adding 1 boiled and warm egg into the bag.
Close the bag and shake the egg for 30 to 45 seconds.
Check the egg. So pretty…you just made the most beautiful Easter eggs. Ever.
IMPORTANT: Rice will dry very quickly so keep adding more color into the bag.
So if you are done with fun projects with your kids, what else can you do?
Of course you can READ. Reading is super important for all kids.
Because of that my friend Miranda is suggesting… see below:
Cozy, Crafty and Creative Books For Children
In these crazy times, more than ever children need literature. They need an escape, to snuggle up and forget the world around them for a little while. I am an Early Childhood Educator with over ten years experience working with children. One of my favourite things to do is read to children and then have a discussion and do an activity based on the book we just read. Not only will it help pass the time and possibly ease some of the anxieties of what’s going on in the world around them it, they may learn some new vocabulary, gain new interests, not to mention it is a wonderful time to bond with your child.
Crafty Llama by Mike Kerr is a sweet book all about friendship and being creative. Llama has the whole day ahead of her and wants to do something creative with it. She begins to knit things for all of her friends and her friends also get creative with their own crafting mediums. Her friend Beaver however, would like to make something useful. Enjoy reading this book and seeing what all the cute creatures get up to making and what they use it for.
After I read this book to the children at my centre, I provided them with some scrap yarn and glue and asked them to draw a simple picture of anything they want then either outline the picture with the yarn or fill it in, let them be creative and use their own imagination. I favour process arts and crafts over product. Let the children go to town and do their own thing. The end result may surprise and delight you and your child.
BTW, before I say bye to you, I think you need a drink.
