6 Fun & Frugal Easter Crafts | LifeasMOM.com

Easter is not too far off. Less than a week! It’s one of my favorite holidays.

First, of course: Jesus. He has solved my life’s problems, including my biggest one: me. Easter is a time for me to reflect and rejoice that He’s loved me so much for so long.

Secondly, Easter comes at a time when we are more than ready to shake off the old — the old man, the old weather, the old winter. New life is the name of the game. There’s much to celebrate, both spiritually and physically. Involving our kids in the celebration is an important part of it.

Check out these fun Easter crafts for kids as a way to celebrate all the good things of Easter.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
