Arts and crafts are a daily activity here in our home, so we’re no strangers to glue, paint, popsicle sticks, scissors and yarn. As a college kid, my summer job for three consecutive summers, was Arts & Crafts Director for a day camp in Vienna, Virginia. Needless to say, it makes me smile when I see the creativity that my children have, and the pride that exudes when they say, “Mom, look what I made!”
As far as the holidays go, we make our own birthday cards and have attempted building gingerbread houses for a few years, however up until now, I’ve deprived my kids of dip-dyeing and decorating Easter eggs. This, mainly because when I think about the process, I’m not at all thrilled by the store-bought kits. Last year, I read about what I thought was the coolest Easter egg-painting tradition — which involves a get-together with friends and family — held by designer, Lulu deKwiatkowski, in her back yard. And this year, I’m totally inspired!
