Not sure if it's the new baby at our house, or the date on the calendar, but spring has sprung in our home! My favorite season brings the promise of longer days, warmer temperatures, and new beginnings. Balancing the needs of a two week old, and a two year old have made for some hectic days recently. So when things get chaotic why not add to it and say, "Let's paint!"
This Easter craft was the perfect combination of colors, counting, and shapes for my son. We reviewed the shape of a circle, talked about different colors, and counted out our green scraps to make the carrot's stem. We even used some old plastic Easter eggs to paint with. Great for chubby little hands to grasp!
