Spring, Weekend Round-Up

Weekend Round-up!

Spring is in the air all over the Blogosphere!

I love this post on The Imagination Tree about making a play garden. I really want to set up a little area like this! And Keeper at Home has a great post on how to plan my garden.

Of course Holy Week is coming and The Catholic Toolbox, as usual, has some great ideas for marking the week. Living Crafts also has this great post from Suzanne Down showing you how to felt a black hen and chick. This would be awesome in an Easter basket!


March… In Like a Lion and Out Like a Lamb

March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb… or so goes the familiar saying. At our house, we’ve been having fun predicting at breakfast whether it will be a “lion day” or a “lamb day.” On our daily walk, we look for signs of spring, or remnants of winter. Here are some fun lion and lamb activities to see you through March.

Make lion and lamb fluffy pillows (you will probably have to cut and paste this link). You can revamp the instructions to use natural materials.

Bake some yummy lion and lamb bread on your next bread-baking day.
