Trees don’t have to be just for Christmas. In Germany, it’s traditional this time of year to collect a few small branches which are showing the signs of spring and bringing them into your home to decorate for Easter. These sprigs are propped up in a vase, with brightly coloured eggs hung from them, rabbit ornaments, and fluffy chick decorations.
This a good opportunity to not just get the kids away from electronic devices, it’s also a great way to show them that the garden’s more than just a place to kick a ball around. Start with something simple like daffodil bulbs or sunflower seeds and take it from there. Honestly, you don’t even need a garden for this. You can always start them off indoors and move them outside later if you want.
If you’ve never heard of The Kindness Rock Project, it’s is a viral trend where people, commonly children, paint pebbles or stones with inspirational messages or sayings. Then they leave them in out for other people to find. The intention is to spread kindness and love. So this Easter, let’s get creative and spread some love.
