We colored eggs the Thursday before Easter so that the whole family could be a part of it - Yuta worked Friday and Saturday.
This year the kids were very much into having their OWN eggs and keeping track of which ones they did, so we were careful to keep everything separated. After we finished coloring we put the eggs in the fridge, and on both Friday and Saturday they checked in on their eggs and brought them out to look at them.
Both of them said repeatedly, "I can't wait for the easter egg hunt!"
After we did our eggs I decided to tackle a fairly quick project - making pillows! Taipan asked a few weeks ago for me to make something out of fabric. He didn't really know what, and neither did I since I'm not terribly crafty (yet). I wanted it to be something cuddly - pillow, stuffed animal, etc. So a good friend agreed to go to Joann's with me and help me find supplies.
I ended up buying fleece and stuffing, and made them fleece pillow that don't require any sewing - just tying strips of fabric to create seams. The kids love them - they couldn't wait for me to finish.
Here are the finished products:
I'd originally planned to make them both rainbows with different color backing, but Taisim said she wanted hers to be all pink. I did hers first, and asked Taipan if he wanted it that size or smaller and he said "Bigger!!", so his is a nice floor pillow size. It could use a bit more stuffing, but it's nice for lounging.
And that dress that Taisim is wearing is the Easter dress that Yuta's mom gave her. She loves it - she got it on Wednesday night, and wore it off and on throughout Thurs, Fri, and Sat.
