An Enchanted Childhood Playschool~ Easter Week

We only worked three days this week, taking a long weekend to enjoy celebrating the Ressurection of our Lord Jesus Christ.  So much was packed into these three days, so this post will be picture heavy!

Each day, we read The Easter Egg by one of our favorite authors, Jan Brett.

Our ArtTime included making an easter egg garland, coloring (with food coloring markers) premade egg-shaped cookies, and watercolor painting Easter eggs.



Two days, we dodged the rain, and had a wonderful, nature path Easter egg hunt!


But, despite all the fun Easter activities, the most excitement BY FAR was the hatching of our baby chicks!!!

Each week I joined several linky parties!  What a fun way to share and learn!
