"RESURRECTING" Easter, Part 2

Do you remember my Easter Advent Calendar from last year? I tried to make it all about service.

I had the same idea this year, but I happened to be in Target the other day, and saw all their Easter themed toys. I couldn't resist picking up a few. Luckily this calendar only has 12 pockets!

Here are a few things that are in the pockets. The photos aren't the best, because this hangs in my hall, and I have a hard time getting the right lighting, and angles!

Is it weird to put Sponge Bob in a religious themed pocket? Probably...

I am a sucker for cute wind up toys!

Bunny nose pops!

The kids were very happy! We have been doing a prize every other day, and they have been so happy to get to have fun new things to play with over Spring break. I prefer giving them holiday themed toys before hand, so they can play with them, and they can be put away shortly after the holiday is over. Besides... anticipation is half the fun! Right?

If you want to make one of these, the tutorial is here. This year, I saw a bunch of cute Easter themed felt stickers at Michael's.

Have Happy & Creative Day!
