Wow, Easter sure snuck up on me this year! Hard to believe it is just a couple of weeks away.
Last year, we wound up with tons of plastic Easter eggs (they were needed due to a certain little pup, and certain feathery ladies, who adore Easter candy).
After the hunt, I popped them all in a big bag and intended on doing tons of preschool Easter activities with them the following year.
Well it is the following year, and I can not find the big bag.
But THIS year I just might put my new big bag full of plastic Easter eggs in a spot I remember, and NEXT year we will be elbow deep in preschool Easter activities!
