I remember doing resurrection eggs as a young child and it was always the highlight of Easter Sunday for me.

Seriously though, these are so much fun! 

DIY Resurrection Eggs Easter Activity for Kids

Celebrate Easter with these incredible resurrection eggs (above) via Approaching Home. Not only are they beautifully done, but they include a 3-page FREEbie complete with bible verses, graphics, a cheat sheet, and a list of objects to get for your eggs!

They too include a free printable that includes paper strips with bible verses, bible references, and simple supplies for each egg. This one is a great option for older kiddos.

I’ve got so many fun Easter dyeing options for you guys!!

Hey guys! I’m Mary, homeschool mom of 3 amazing kiddos.

I’m so excited that you decided to check out my little corner of the world!

If you have been following our journey for any length of time, you already know that I’m obsessed with coffee, organization, and all things simple.

I’m also a huge dog lover and introvert 💗

My homeschool style is very eclectic.

I enjoy a solid mixture of structure and free range. I set goals for myself and my children each week, but I put no pressure on perfection.

We use a wide variety of curriculum in our home.

Some of our current favorites are The Good and the Beautiful, Life of Fred, Beautiful Feet Books, and Lifepac.

While my kids do spend a good amount of time learning at desks, they also spend countless hours exploring their creativity and practicing a little independence.

I love mountains, rainy days, and sitting by the campfire. 

Our family recently relocated to the PNW and we have been enjoying finding new nature spots to explore together 🙌🏼

I can’t wait to connect and share all the things I’ve learned on our new journey! 

Just a Note…

Thanks for checking out the kid activities portion of the blog! 

Typically summer is the most productive time for my blog. However, our family is currently living in temporary housing and we do not see an end in sight (thank you housing marking 😪) — meaning my workspace & supplies to produce quality content it extremely limited.

I am still working, but it’s nothing like normal.

As always, we appreciate your patience!
