Easter Book Giveaway!  
Get ready to enter the giveaway to win a copy of "The Legend of the Easter Egg" "Keep the Faith" and "101 Bible Stores from Creation to Revelation."   These books would be perfect for any child's Easter Basket.  


This newly illustrated edition of The Legend of the Easter Egg renews the wonder and charm of the original timeless tale that explores the meaning behind Easter eggs and the Easter story itself. Written by Lori Walburg with vibrant artwork from Marley and Me illustrator, Richard Cowdrey, this holiday classic comes to life for a new generation. One April morning when the air was soft and sweet, a boy and his sister went outside to gather eggs. “Easter’s coming,” the sister said. “Let’s pretend we’re hunting Easter eggs.” “What are Easter eggs?” the boy asked. When Thomas’s older sister Lucy falls ill, Thomas goes to live with the Sonnemans in their candy shop. He gets to eat peppermint sticks, fill candy jars, and weigh chocolate on the tippy scales, but he misses Lucy. When Easter comes, Mrs. Sonneman gives Thomas his first chocolate egg and Thomas learns the true meaning behind Easter eggs, the empty tomb, and the hope found in Jesus. This classic story of faith, love, and wonder is sure to be a treasured reminder of the miracle of Easter.
My Review:
This book is awesome!  Since we reviewed "The Legend of the Candy Cane" by the same author this book was the next one using the same characters from the other book.   Read my review of that story HERE.  Just like the Christmas book the pictures in this story are fantastic.   The story starts off a little slow before it gets to the Easter message but once it gets to the Easter Eggs and message of Christ it is an emotional but loving book.  I will be sharing this story with my Children's church kids!  


Brother and Sister love science. But when their friend Ferdy Factual shares his questions about God creating the universe, the cubs are confused. A trip to see Preacher Brown helps them understand the meaning of faith.  When Brother and Sister Bear’s friend Ferdy Factual tells them he doesn’t believe God created the world, the Bear cubs don’t know what to think. What does it mean to have faith? Can Preacher Brown help? Common Core Standards: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.K.1 With prompting and support, ask and answer questions about key details in a text.

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
