Spring is finally here, even if our New England weather hasn’t fully committed to it yet. That means that Easter is coming, so we’ve put together a bunch of activities that you can do with children of any age to celebrate the holiday. Without further ado, let’s hop to the fun.
We’re talking about these first because, well, everyone loves treats. That said, food is more delicious when it’s homemade and even better when you and your child make it together. The following resources have recipes that aren’t just simple to make, but also are simply adorable:
