Countdown to Easter Party

on saturday, we had our "Countdown to Easter" party. every year, we have a "Happy Birthday, Jesus" party for Christmas and i wanted to do something this year for Easter that really focused on Jesus. don't get me wrong i love dying eggs and hunting for eggs, but i wanted to have a party for our kids and their friends, that would focus on the real meaning of Easter.
we had simple food...muffins and cuties.
we also ate these cute empty tomb snacks.  i found the idea here. we read a few of my favorite Easter stories.   The Colt and The King is a great story about Palm
Sunday from the perspective of the donkey.

after the stories, the kids went to 3 different stations to make some fun crafts.  we also had chalk out for the kids to draw with. they each made a resurrection garden, a palm branch and a cross. 
lastly, my little guy stuffing is face with leftover food.

i'm thankful for all our wonderful friends that came!
