  1. Great tips! Love these ideas. Might need to pick up a package of Easter eggs at my run to the dollar store today.


    1. Thanks Jacquelyn! Some great ideas... I agree! I'm ready to pull my stash of eggs out of the closet and put them to good use. ;)

  2. Ok that is a brilliant round up for two reasons, first the excellent ideas, some really unique ones I hadn't seen before. But even better they all had a picture. I'm very much visual and most round ups turn me off because it's just a description. I love your one. Well done

    1. I agree! I don't even look at the round-ups with just a list. LOVE the pictures.

    2. MY GOSH, you both must be my twins. I am exactly the same! I get so frustrated with these lists of 1000 things for this or that, only to find I have to click through them all. Not worth my time. Especailly considering I'm so picky. I'm a very visual person too... so for me, this is the only way! ;) Glad I'm not the only one who feels this way!

  3. These are some really fantastic, and unique ideas! Thanks so much for sharing this! :)

    1. Thanks Melinda! I'm glad you think so too! :)

  4. Glad I was a little early to For the Kids Friday. What a great idea and a creative list. I'd love for you to share these at my Season's Best {Easter} Link-up!

    1. Holli, thanks for your comment! I'll hop over and share right away. Thanks for the invite! :)

    2. Thank you! So many great ideas. Pinning your post for a resource for this year and those to come. :)

  5. I am loving those Daisy Chains! We made the Light Up Fireflies for our bug theme last summer, and they were a huge hit.

    1. Love the light up fireflies too! Thanks for your note Shaunna! I appreciate you stopping by! :)

  6. So happy to have found your site! So many creative ideas :)
