We’ve been admiring those Ukranian dyed eggs, called Pysanky for quite some time. They are amazingly beautiful and delicate wax resist artworks, that look like they would be very fun for an adult to attempt or an older child, but probably utterly frustrating, too fiddly, or downright impossible for the younger kids, so I thought we’d try making a more simple craft that mimicked the technique, but with more simple tools and on a much larger scale.
To celebrate Earth Day tomorrow, the best thing you could do is nothing. Make no waste, don’t drive a car, don’t turn on the lights, don’t flush the toilet, don’t eat! OK, if that’s not practical, how about a recycled paper craft that you can do with the kiddos? But really, you could just cut back on the other things too.
Even though April Fool’s Day is behind us, the month is full of holidays to celebrate. Plus, it’s now officially Spring, which for me has replaced Autumn as my favorite season. Yesterday, the birds were chirping outside my window and I couldn’t stop myself from smiling that the season had arrived.
Here are some fun activities to consider this month!
