Easter baskets

Posted by on Apr 6, 2012 in Blog Posts | 13 comments

Another “oldie but goodie”as I pull from my files. This year we did the whole Easter Egg tree too. We poked holes in the eggs, blew them out, and decorated and hung them on the tree. It was way more work than it was worth!  But, we do have a pretty tree. Next year, back to boiling and Paas… This post was originally from 2009… Easter is coming up for those who celebrate (or do the Easter Bunny thing.)

M’s summer camp had a lovely little garden. I was bemused when a note came home one day with, “she even tried green beans!” (They are a favorite.) We don’t need to make smiley faces out of foods, or over-sell foods with crazy names or try to get kids to try new foods with bribes, reward stickers or praise. Case in point? Purple beans.
