Whether your a mom, a grandmother, an aunt or simply a woman who loves little children you might be interested in this little spring project to do with those sweet ‘littles’ in your sphere of influence.
We did this last spring and the boys loved it. I took empty crepe egg cartons and painted a variety of colors in them. The boys assignments were to go find something in the yard that matched the color in the egg carton. It was so fun and I was amazed at how many bright, rich hues were actually growing in our backyard! Why would I be surprised? Our God is such an amazing artist!
I loved the creativity of the boys because while they had some similar color options they both chose different items to put in there trays.
It is a simple project but a great way to get them outdoors to explore in a different kind of way!
I kept these egg cartons and it will be fun to see what they come up with this year when they go out to explore. We can’t wait to get home and see what spring in Virginia looks like, we will be home soon. We are currently on a 4 week Choice Books assignment in Texas. Spring here has been so gorgeous. Everything is green, the bluebonnets are beautiful and the spring sun has warmed more then my skin. It has awakened something in my soul.
Being in Texas has been such a great opportunity for our family. I have been able to catch up on some reading, some journalling, and Merv and I have been spending extra time just playing with the kids and doing things with the kids that we don’t always take the time to do.
