Decorating for Easter + a cute Easter printable

We decorate our house for Christmas, we put up balloons for birthday’s and at easter we beautify a little area in our home to celebrate easter.  From when my children were toddlers we have made easter crafts each year.  We displayed them on a hutch in our dining area.  Over the years we have collected some gorgeous ornaments and decorative easter eggs.

Much like decorating the Christmas tree, to decorate our hutch and make easter crafts and baking treats is so much fun and a great family moment.

It is our family choice to use ornaments such as bunnies and easter eggs to celebrate the Easter weekend, other families may choose religious pieces.  Whatever your desires are, I think it’s fun to look at and countdown to the easter weekend.

Sweet little ornaments from Bed Bath n Table

Miss 7 had fun making this easter garland, inspired by Modern Parents Messy Kids

I purchased this  gorgeous frame from IKEA (KVILL) for $6.99, bargain yet so beautiful (plastic too so kids can’t break it)!  Then made this cute little easter printable to fit in the frame.

 Do you decorate for easter?

Thanks for this…. This year will be the first year that my 2.5 year old will have some understanding about Easter!!! Yay…. We can create some excitement which I am looking forward to. The only thing is, how do I explain who what and where the easter bunny comes from and why we have Easter eggs? we’re not religious, but do have some beliefs about Jesus. Anyway, can you suggest some ideas on how I can introduce this to my toddler!! Thanks 🙂

This is the First year i have decorated for Easter, i have never really thought about it in the past, but i saw a wonderful idea on Darling Doodles to decorate Mason Jars, although she has filled them with all sorts, i have filled mine with the small choc eggs & tied ribbon at the top

We love Easter too! I’ve been making a felt playhouse for the children’s Easter present and will (hopefully) have it finished in time to hide their eggs amongst it!

I also bought some if the gorgeous polka dot eggs from BB&T, really wanted the bike riding rabbit maybe in the sales!

Love that bunting we might make it next week!

Yay for Easter!

Kat, the Easter Eggs you have in front of your vase – did you make or buy them?

I have just bought some Styrofoam eggs from Spotlight and would like to know how I could make some similar. Any ideas?

Yes I’d love to know where those are from or how to make them as well. Just gorgeous!

We’ve sone various Easter activities over the year – even has an Easter tree which we decorated with coloured eggs and angels. The lasting activity has been a cryptic Easter egg hunt . I now need a really hard one for my 15 yr old daughter. Any ideas?
