Easter Countdown

Remember how you count down the days until Christmas with an Advent Calendar...

...little ones get so excited to open a window each day - we always do this in the morning before breakfast and Scout gets his little treat for the day...

I thought I'd share our little Easter Advent - it starts 12 days before Easter and you get to open one egg each day - (Scout's really too old for this now - but he loved it when he was little)...

...we spray painted an egg carton silver...

...here's the list of what is in each egg...

...and you end up on Easter morning opening an empty egg - just like the tomb is empty...

  6. What a wonderful tradition! Just like Christmas, the true meaning of Easter is often overlooked.
