If only we had more Spring weather! March has definatly been a rollercoaster with the weather! Tuesday it was about 43 degrees outside and we thought it would be a good day to do some Easter activities with our kiddos. Asher & Jade are 3 weeks apart. They are 21 & 22 months old. These are the 3 activities we did with them. It was such a fun day! I love watching Asher & Jade grow and interact with one another. These too are very funny to watch as well. They literally fight like they are sibling's and know how to push each others buttons. At the end of the day though they are so loving to one another. Jade more than Asher. Since Jade was little before she leave she always gives Asher a hug. Asher's reply is usually "NOOOO" and maybe a little nudge to go away. He is finally warming up to the idea and Tuesday he let her hug him without a fuss! Watching these two is preparing me for what my husband and I's lives are going to be like in May once our little girl makes her arrival!
Some of these activities were a huge success and others not so much. But we all had a lot of fun!
Asher loves to be messy. He loves dirt, sand, mud, or anything in general that makes a mess. Miss Jade prefers to keep clean. This was a fun experience watching Asher play in the cool whip & food coloring. While Jade watched Asher make a mess! They did roll the eggs around for a little, but I think they are still a little young so grasp the concept!
Easter Trail Mix:
Every holiday I make the kiddos a trail mix! Tuesday these two very nicely shared a bowl of trail mix! Link below to the recipe. What a gentleman letting Jade have the chair !
Eggs & Straws Activity:
The goal was to balance the eggs on the straws. The kids just enjoyed pushing the straws the whole way through the box. They had a blast with it! Asher was stacking the eggs & counting while doing it. Proud Momma moment when he counts!
I think the Egg Hunt was the kids favorite. Asher kept saying "more" once we were finished. He may or may not have tried to steal some of Jade's eggs. Jade was so sweet and placed eggs in his basket for him because he wanted them. I see a lot of differences between little boys and little girls when these two are together.
We did the egg hunt in my backyard. My backyard is fenced in which is AMAZING! We let them out back and they took off after the eggs. I was so amazed that at just under 2 they knew what to do. So mind blowing how smart our little ones are! Here's a list of what we filled our eggs with.
Wishing everyone a Happy Easter!!!
