Modern Parents, Messy Kids. Except their messy kids must be older, or less messy, than mine because that is some smooth cutting at their house.
1 - Not really that messy
2 - Collaborative; ALL THREE girls could do something
3 - Quick
4 - FREE (thank you, Home Depot)
It appealed to each girl in a different way, which is just the best kind of activity. Ginger has been really working on scissor skills this year, and cutting eggs was just challenging enough without being frustrating. Hazel is a smooth cutter, and also enjoyed putting the cut-out eggs in numerical order, and helping string them. Poppy loved all the colored cards, and holding scissors for probably the first time.
Paint Chip Easter GarlandWhat you need:
- An Easter egg cookie cutter or other template
- Sharpie or pencil
- A stack of paint chips (about 3-4 per rainbow color)
What to do:Trace the egg on the back of the paint chips, making sure it's not where the words are. I also numbered them before handing them off to the girls for cutting because that makes it easier to put them back in order than eyeballing it.
Crazy Box - I think a small punch is better than a regular three-hole punch.
Hang it up to show the world!
