We had a little Easter party for the girls this morning. 12 children, some simple projects, a few games, easy snacks and lots of pastel colors. Even though Sabrina's big birthday party and CC's smaller one are just a few weeks away, I love children's parties and I love Easter, so couldn't resist. Somehow, with the nice weather and new energy in the air it seemed like the perfect time to host a little get together.
On the agenda:
decorating little bags
making Easter egg ornaments
frosting, decorating and eating carrot mini cupcakes
snacking on grapes, bunny crackers, and mini rabbit carrots
a game of pin-the-tail on the bunny that I made out of a poster sheet and pom poms
a plastic egg bounce with the parachute.
I've noticed that some children like to take a break at parties or feel shy at first and want a quiet spot to hang out, so we turned my study into a a cozy place to snuggle with stuffed animals and enjoy books about Easter and springtime.
