Good Friday Activities

Good morning friends! It is Good Friday, the day we remember Jesus’ death on the cross. I love the saying, “It’s Friday, but Sunday’s a comin’!” Search for the YouTube video and watch it today, it is a powerful reminder of what Good Friday is about. This week in my art class we did a project to help them remember the meaning of Good Friday. Continue reading “Good Friday Activities”

So I ran to the store.

100 Plastic Egg Stuffer Ideas (No Candy)

So as Easter approaches I’m faced with another holiday that my kids will receive a lot of candy they don’t need. We usually have Halloween candy until the next year when I finally dump it because maybe 5% was eaten. We just don’t allow a lot of extra sugar in our house. It isn’t good for my kids and they are so used to fruits or organic snack options they don’t usually even ask for candy. I cannot control what they get at local parties or egg hunts. At home though I always try to find alternative egg fillers!
