As we were taking down our St. Patrick’s Day decorations on Sunday, Harrison asked what was next. It dawned on me that I really do decorate for every season and holiday because my boys know as soon as one set of decorations come down, it’s time for another set to go up! While this strategy takes up some serious storage space (thank goodness for spacious three-car garages, Lowe’s shelving and handy husbands), I’m sure we can all agree that holidays add to the spice of life!
Anyway, so when Harrison discovered Easter was next, he immediately wanted to dye eggs! Well, it’s too early to dye real eggs, so I promised him we would color paper eggs with crayons. No, not quite as exciting—because it’s not nearly as messy—yet I totally won him over when I brought out the scissors. Scissors?
Yes! As he was tracing (imagining that his attempt at zigzag lines were legible enough to be considered tracing), I thought this could make a fun puzzle. And wouldn’t you know: POW another Supermom Moment was created! Our five-minute worksheet suddenly transformed into 20 minutes of puzzles and “what’s bigger” discussions.
