Every weekend usually involves a trip to walmart for me. Whether I'm in need of something, or my classroom is. Usually it's my classroom. I should really just have my school district deposit my paycheck to Walmart and Michaels. Might be easier.
I found myself get a little Easter Holiday happy while I was there on Sunday.
I went ahead and picked up items for a pinterest inspired Peep treat to give my kiddos before Spring Break too.
There were only 3 Easter items on my list when I got there: jelly beans, m & ms, and There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Chick (because I haven't a clue where the copy I already own is!)
I think it's obvious I walked away with more items than that! I saw the Splat the Cat book in Michaels, and it is a.dor.a.ble. It's a lift the flap book, which I typically steer away from, but as a group activity I think we can handle it. I hope to share with you the idea I have for that book! It involves that large yellow egg in the back too!
And did you all see Abby's post about The Easter Bunny's Assistant? She raved about the book on Friday in this post. When I saw it in the store I had to look inside. Oh. my. word. HILARIOUS. You have to go buy this book. Your kids will love it! The activities Abby made for the text are too high for my kiddos, but I know I want to make something this week to accompany the read aloud. I definitely need to go check out more books by Jan Thomas!
Are you doing any really fun activities for Easter? Share them in a comment! Is your school even allowed to do Easter related activities? I am SO GLAD we are allowed to!
