For those of you new to the blog, Friday is a casual day here.  In an effort to allow for creative expression,  I scale back on Friday’s, so that we all have a little room to breathe.

This week, I have book-marked 5 simple ideas which might help you make Easter weekend both simple and beautiful.


1.  FREE Scripture Printables

What better way to internalize Scripture, than to place it where it can be seen?

2.  Egg Craft

After emphasizing the key spiritual concepts of Easter, there are many fun culturally festive elements to enjoy.

This is a sweet and simple idea for an easy craft.  My Emma is never happier than when armed with a glue stick and scissors- this craft meets both of those passions.

3.  Pretzel Rods

Children love novelty items, and these are just that.  In an attempt to weave adult foods with those that children enjoy, these will appear in our home on Sunday –  simple and inexpensive.

4.  Mini-Cupcakes

Also, with small people in mind, here is a great resource for creating bite-sized cupcakes, found on Spoonful.

5.  Family Easter Outfits

Here in the South, Easter is often warm and sunny.  It is the kick-off weekend of Spring, and as such, churches are washed in seersucker and pastels.  Many of us take family photos on Easter weekend, which makes this resource so very helpful.

6.  Egg Coloring Page

While you are trying to shower and dress, this might be a great page to print off for your children.  It might buy you 15 valuable minutes!

That is all for today.  I hope you all have a lovely Easter weekend, celebrating our HOPE in Christ.  We have been given so much more than we deserve, and His grace alone is the foundation of our celebrating.

Enjoy spending time eating good food, surrounded by those you love.

He is risen!
