Is that a bunny comes along and lays these colorful little eggs;)

Daddy's out of town, so we're keeping busy... any fun Easter/St. Patty's Day (kid) craft recommendations?

that is very cute.  Did you look on the various childrens sites for ideas?  DD just had dr seuss week and one craft they did was from red fish blue fish...... You decorated a paper fish (red or blue) with tissue paper crumpled up and glue to the fish...... Maybe you can adapt that to easter/spring/st pattys day.  One craft for st pattys is make a pot of gold and a rainbow.  Maybe make a leprechauns hat as well for the child or mommy to wear.

maybe a Spring tree?  We take a branch off our apple tree and hang spring-y type things off of it.  Put the branch in water and it'll start to grow leaves. :)  We've done it since I was a little girl.  :)

Good ones... We'll probably be using some of these ideas! Not sure I'll be wearing a leprechaun hat around though;)

Oh rainbows- how could I forget about the rainbows/St. Patty's day?

You can just wear it around the house for dress up time.  Yes you know the story. At the end of a rainbow you will find a pot of gold.  Find the pot of gold and you will find a leprechaun and then he/she will have to grant you a wish.

Oh fun! We'll try that too!

That also reminds me of something I did in pre-school... We glued a limb on a peice of paper... And then made popcorn and clued it around the limb to look like little blossoms (while eating popcorn)...

Maybe we'll do a little scavenger hunt! I just remembered that my first grade teacher did that for us... (there was a pot of chocolate gold coins at the end of it... For the class to share!) my son is just shy of 2, so I'll have to switch it up a bit... :)
