There are the serious ones like home loan info and best renovations for your house. But there are plenty of fun ones as well like Easter Joys, Grand for Kids and Grandkids, Home Decor, Garden Decor, and Things to Do in and around Roseville Sacramento CA. Each of these has even more creative and interesting ideas for celebrating Easter 2016.
Interested in Easter Resurrection Eggs? Those were always a fave with all my grandkids. Amazon has a couple of new sets of them out this year. One is basically the normal Resurrection Easter eggs craft for Easter that I’ve used in the past. The other (pictured above) is a plastic Easter eggs craft set that the kids and grandkids can decorate themselves for Easter fun. Very cool! Plus a fave blog of mine, Frugal Fun 4 Boys has a cute wooden Resurrection Easter Egg set idea. I wish I’d seen all these a month ago, before my last visit with my grandkids! They will definitely be at the top of my craft project list for next year!
