I am a little sad that Valentines Day is over. I never did get to make a Valentine wreath for my front door. I do plan to make an Easter wreath, though.
Tomorrow will mark the beginning of Lent. Ash Wednesday. Forty days until Easter.
I decided to leave up the "love tree" and now it will become our Easter tree. Today, we made some pocket Easter eggs. They are just felt pieces cut in an egg shape. I used some ric rac to decorate them. (we used all of the rhinestones on the hearts!) Then we added a little "pocket" to the back of them.
In each pocket is a little slip of paper. Each day we will take some time and empty a pocket and follow the instructions.
This is a fun project to do with your kids. My 6 year old did some of the sewing around the edges and felt so big! She's been asking for sewing lessons forever! We plan to make more and cover the tree.
Hopefully, my kids will learn a bit more about the great sacrifice Jesus made for us and not just be concerned with what kind of candy will grace their baskets this year.
