So eight of them gathered at Sara's house and I arrived with my goodies in hand, and the fun (and mess) began. They ranged in age from 3 to 10.
We started with the messiest craft first - making Easter eggs by winding yarn around inflated balloons and coating them with ModPodge. sticky, sticky, sticky. And I forgot to take pictures of the finished products. Oh well! This one was a challenge.
|Elly very carefully coated her balloon with ModPodge|
|Kenzie, with her wrapped balloon, all ready for the final coat of ModPodge|
|Charlie, always the clown, pretended to eat her partially wrapped balloon.|
While I cleaned up that mess and had the 'eggs' hanging to dry, the kids colored Easter pages that I had printed out for them.

Our next craft was to make pretzel treats using pretzels, melting candy, and Smarties (M&Ms) The kids loved this one, sneaking bits of candy into their mouths when they thought I wasn't looking.

The pretty sparkly dots don't show up here but trust me, they were cute.
|Quinn was very serious about getting her dots on just|
right and using all the colors of sprinkles.
A fun way to spend a day.
