Easter is just a few weeks away! If you celebrate, you probably have a big mid-day meal, but the kids need some entertainment too! Here are some my favorite Easter crafts that I’ve found from all over the web. Try them with your kids to add some excitement and adventure to their day.

  2. Gently place the shells in bowls of vinegar mixed with food coloring. I would use about 1/2 cup of vinegar with your favorite color combination.
  3. Soak the shells until they are dyed. Use a large spoon to remove the eggs from the bowls. Place the eggs down on egg cartons and allow them to dry completely.
  4. Slightly enlarge the hole at the end of each egg. Fill the eggs about 1/2 full of confetti. Use tape to close the hole in each egg. You can also place a small amount of white glue to cover the hole. Allow ample time to dry.

organic bedding and accessoriesWritten by Jennifer Cicci of Babee Talk

As a mother, Jennifer understands the importance of offering nothing by the best for baby. Motivated by teeth marks on her children’s cribs, she decided to design a teething rail cover after trying products that didn’t measure up when it came to quality or style. What she found out made her even more concerned about children’s safety and health: The toxic chemicals used in the production of synthetic materials have been linked to birth defects, reproductive disorders, and weakened immune systems.

She asked herself, “What if I could revolutionize the way parents decorated their crib with a safe and stylish teething rail cover that could be placed on the crib from day one?” Babee Talk® launched in 2014 with organic bedding and accessories. Chew-friendly, drool-friendly, and organic inside and out, her products ensure a healthy start in life for babies.

She only offers products that she would provide for her own children. She hopes moms and dads will start to talk about the importance of choosing safe, healthy, eco-friendly products, especially for babies.
