Easter crafts

So here I am blogging again...mainly for family and friends to see what we are getting up to. So many people are skeptical of our home ed choice, but hopefully this will encourage some people that we DO socialize, we aren't recluses, we DO learn things, and we actually have fun in the process ;) and it IS possible for a single mother on a low income to home ed!

It's almost Easter time so we have been doing some fun Easter crafts. There is much debate about the origins of Easter, but this is now a time of faith for us, to focus on the amazing story of Yeshua's death and resurrection which brings much joy and thanksgiving in our lives...

We had great fun yesterday making salt dough Easter eggs. We walked around the park gathering branches so that we could study tiny spring buds opening up on our nature table, and they are really effective with the salt dough eggs hanging from them...

An easy salt dough recipe is: 2 cups flour, 1 cup table salt, 1 cup water... mix into a dough and knead for ten minutes, and then it's ready to roll out. Bake in the oven on a low temp until they are golden brown and hard. We used an egg shaped cutter and then painted them in bright colors with pretty stipes and spots.

Acey also made some lovely Easter cards

Now if only the weather would be more springlike!!
