That said, I've been pretty busy doing projects around the house and getting ready for our guests, not to mention the every-day business of schooling the biggies and running my household. So, I needed some Easter ideas that would be meaningful without being time-consuming.
When I saw this great idea last week, I ran out & raided my hubby's shed right away.
The bowl-ful of nails in the middle of our table has prompted some interesting conversations, especially with Thomas who is old enough this year to begin to interact with the Easter story.
The other thing we did was to create an Easter garden, (inspired here and here). Over the weekend we explored our woods for moss and little plants and had fun putting it all together.
Two of the boys' neighbor-friends came over to see what we were doing and were eager to help gather supplies. That meant that I got to share the gospel with them as we put the Easter garden together on our front porch. What a great opportunity!
