I had to slowly sound out "activities" as I typed it....and again just now. Haha! Just thought you should know....
We have been having fun with lots of Easter activities (and again!) for the past week. Here we goooo.....!!
First up: Easter Egg Decorating!
Normally, I buy the cheapest egg-dye kit I can find - IF I even buy one. There's been a few years in the past - sad years - when eggs have not been dyed at the Cresap house. But this year, I got a cool kit full of fun extras like glitter, beads, paint, and sponge shapes. Amber, Jade, and I had a blast coloring eggs while David and Paisley were out running errands. Can you spot my favorite egg??
Second: The Easter Pageant + Vito's Pizza
David saw a couple baby goats while I was taking the girls for a "last-call" potty trip
Third: Easter Cookie Time with the Andersons
I totally got distracted decorating the cookies and forgot to take pictures.....but here's the end results!
And Last (for tonight anyways): Easter Breakfast Rolls
My friend told me about these Easter breakfast rolls after decorating the cookies today: using whatever roll recipe, pull a lump of dough, flatten it into a circle, place a large marshmallow in the center (representing Christ's body) then seal the dough around it (like sealing the tomb). Brush with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, then refridgerate overnight. When they're baked in the morning, the marshmallow melts into the dough but leaves a hollow space in the center. When the "tomb" is opened Easter morning, "Christ's body" is not there. What a great object lesson! Since I'm babysitting my nieces and nephew today, I included them as well. The four oldest kiddos had fun helping me with all the dough. I made a pan for us, and a pan for them to take home.
