Make this spring center piece and let your child add an egg ornament each day leading up to Easter. If you have a personal relationship with the Christ of Easter, use this advent tree to teach your child about the spiritual significance of the events surrounding Easter. Starting with a paper egg for Palm Sunday put a scripture verse on the back of each egg with the day of the week labeled on it as well (Palm Sunday, Monday, Tuesday etc.). Or label the eggs with numbers 1-8 Ending with a verse for Easter Sunday.

I'm a wife, mother of 4 and have always been a teacher at heart. I find solitude refreshing, gardening delightful and caring for my various indoor plants to be rather calming. The act of creating something beautiful from time to time is a must for me! Once in a while it is something related my children's educational activities so I might share it with you here! ;-)
Much of my time is spent learning with and educating my 4 wonderful children who help me see the world with fresh eyes (it is almost as magical as being a child again!) I also enjoy spending as much time as possible with my husband, a talented electronic musician with a classical background.
