A Printable Easter Bible Story
As a Christian I do share the Easter egg hype and is still wondering where the bunny fits in, but I want my grandchildren to know from the onset, what the real story behind Easter is.
I was so relieved to find a printable Bible story. If you click on her link to take you to the printable, you will find a library of stories! To visit the site, click here.
Bunny Treat Bags
I love everything from the Nana Company and this bunny treat bag will never go out of fashion. Be creative and alter the method to your skill or liking - Replace the bias at the top with ribbon or just make a small sleeve to pull through rope or ribbon - and there you have a drawstring bag! If you are not too sure about my suggestion, find a full drawstring bag picture tutorial here.
Free Easter Tag and Bunting/Coaster Printable
Please share the printables with your friends, that will be my Easter treat!
Adorable Bunny Purse
Little one's are like mimic artists and to see a little girl, throw a bag over her shoulder or play with sweet little nothings in it, is a blessing. Who can resist this purse from Make it, Love it? I am not always brave enough to attempt bags but with her tutorial, I am considering making this! You may want to sew 2 buttons on for eyes and a little pom-pom at the bag for a tail....
Machine Embroidered Bunny Face
I am considering purchasing this design to embroider on a treat bag or adorable purse for my grandchildren.
The design is available on a lovely site called Dolls and Daydreams. If you are an embroidery enthusiast, you will love all her designs.
An Altered Felt Bunny Treat Bag
The felt treat bag from Skip to my Lou is a too cute! I have seen another similar In-the-hoop design. It just goes to show, nothing is really impossible to make. If you do not have an embroidery machine, use you imagination and sew the same item, with your own, unique stamp of approval!
Easter Coloring Pages
Try a new recipe to surprise the family. The marshmallow bark is colorful and ...oh so.....sweet!
The recipe is available on a site called Butter with a side of bread! What a name! Makes me think of think soup and warm bread with....butter!
If you hit Home on their blog, you will find the most scrumptious recipes, including new Easter ideas.
Can you believe that an egg holder, a feather and egg shells can look great on an Easter table? You have to see the simplicity yet striking combination at Mamas Kram. If you happen to spend Easter by the Coast, you can make twig crosses too!
Easter eggs with a twist
Laurie from My husband has too many hobbies created textured eggs, using plastic eggs and modelling paste. You can see why she calls it elegant.
Crocheted Easter Eggs
Talking about elegant eggs....the crocheted covered eggs are really something special. I regret to advise that the original blog that posted and pinned the egg is not available anymore. However, for seasoned crocheters, it will not be too difficult to figure out their own pattern!
A true Easter Family Tradition
Cathy was a colleague, a friendly British woman, with the best telephone manners I have ever met. Every one just loved her.
She had 2 grandsons at the time and adored them.
Loving as she was, this was her Easter tradition:
Cathy spent her late Marches, hunting for thermal vest and long-johns, pajamas and a rope, slippers, warm socks and underwear for each boy. She made a huge packet, wrapped the whole bunch together, with a single Easter Egg on top!
That's it - the most thoughtful Easter gift anyone can think of.
I have tried to copy Cathy's tradition and this year, will be no exception.
Remember that we are living in the Southern hemisphere, if you decide to follow Cathy's tradition, yours will be colorful Spring clothes!
May you and your family have a lovely Easter!
