A circle of rainbow-coloured tiny Easter eggs of salt dough were the order of the day for me and my girls.
We had such fun, all afternoon, stirring the salt dough, colouring it, pressing it, pulling it, making little handprints...
Eee's handprint inside Ess'
We formed them into tiny eggs to be dried......and placed into an Easter basket, handmade and decorated by Ess...
...with a little help from little Eee. The putting in and out of the basket was a great hit for her.
All to remind us of the gift of new life.
Children's craft...perhaps sometimes looking a little wilted, a little laboured, a little skewed (particularly after returning from a day at school where most of the eggs were given away to classmates) yet God sees the flowers growing, the little hands learning about making, creating, preparing, giving, increasing their abilities, developing motor skills along with attitudes about themselves and their gifts and abilities.
