It has been unusually chilly and drip-droppy here in SoCal as of late, especially following a brilliantly warm April full of blooms. To embrace this bit of drizzle I've come up with a little rain drop craft made from security envelopes.
It's an incredibly simple craft that will be easy to do with your little ones. Just use the raindrop template (found at the end of the post - right click and save), trace it atop the envelope, and then cut and apply to either fine art paper, canvas, wood, you name it, using some sort of adhesive or acrylic medium, Mod Podge, etc.
As I didn't have time to make little suits for my little gents, I had to come up with something much more simple. Freehand fabric painted bunnies on t-shirts was just the ticket. Dress them up with some suspenders, a cardigan and new shoes, and an Easter hunt ensemble you have. (They wore their Sunday best from years past for the actual Easter service).
We did our simple food coloring egg dye technique complete with stickers, which gave us the same fun color variation. And yes, we did this on Easter Sunday...right before the hunt...which also seams to becoming a tradition for us.
And it couldn't be Easter without our Lindt Chocolate Carrots. These are the one thing that Little A requested from the Easter Bunny...again....and again.
Another big hit were the chalk eggs the boys received from a previous hunt. They were perfect for coloring and adorning their chalkboard painted pails.
It was a gorgeous afternoon and we spent most of it with my aunts and uncles and cousins from the surrounding area eating delicious food and playing the most entertaining round of Gestures ever (I'll just say this - my older aunt Cheryl received the card "fire hydrant" and acted it out appropriately [think dog vs. fire hydrant]. Hilarity ensued).
It was a most marvelous Easter Sunday indeed.
