Celebrating Easter with children

celebrating-easter-with-childrenHere at Chez green, we don’t celebrate Easter. We celebrate Ostara instead.

I know many of you will be having an Easter festival today, so rather than write about celebrations myself, I’m handing it over to people who do – the experts in celebrating Easter with children!

You’ll find three great ideas to make a card, a gift and the most important – chocolatey goodness!

The gift

Wendy over at My Green Side has a lovely Easter craft photo post for you to enjoy. Here you will read about her family making refrigerator magnets which carry the beautiful message of rebirth and rejoicing for the children’s grandparents.

The chocolate

Alison at Homeschooler’s guide to the galaxy has been making an easy no bake recipe with her children! Learn how to make gorgeous Easter nests to enjoy today.

The card

Kathy, over at Art Projects for kids, has a cute bunny Easter card for you to make. The bunny face can be drawn by young or old and never loses its charm!

What are you doing to celebrate Easter today?

    Thanks for the fun article! I am Jewish, but I got inspired by a blogging friend to make some natural dyes for hard boiled eggs out of food.

    I took a few photos and posted them on my blog: http://whatscookingblog.com/2009/04/09/playing-with-food-using-food-to-dye-our-easter-eggs/

    I can’t wait to browse the rest of your blog!

    I came here to read my newest favorite blog and to my surprise saw that I was included in your post! I am honored beyond words!

    I also learned what Ostara is, how to make a no bake Easter egg nest and how to make an adorable Easter card! I absolutely love this blog and could spend hours and hours reading all the wisdom contained here.

    Thank you so much!

    @Michelle: Hi Michelle – welcome! What a lovely post you wrote about Easter eggs – I would certainly have linked to you too if I had known about it.

    The colours from natural dyes are beautiful aren’t they? Did you have a favourite colour and what did you use to create it?

    @Wendy: Hi Wendy, good to see you. It was great to link to your blog; you know I’m a fan 🙂
    Thank you for your lovely comment. What are your plans for today?

    Here’s to going green for Easter – I went all over the city looking for organic chocolate Easter eggs! Found some and they were enjoyed by all.

    @Paige Green: Hello again Paige. It looks like you love that Green pages website as this is the second time you have told us about it! Is it your site?

    Perhaps you would consider a guest post for us and I could write one for you in exchange.

    Glad you found some organic Easter eggs; which brand did you manage to get hold of?
