Easy Easter Decorating

There are a few simple things, I've done, around our house, to decorate for Easter.  Maybe you'll find something inspirational!

A bowl full of plastic eggs with a ribbon tied on.  Easy and cheap!

I decorated the sconces on either side of our mirror.  Stay tuned for the garland that will be hanging from the mirror to finish that area!

All I did was fill the vases with glass pebbles, tie on a bow, attach two paper mache eggs, and make fleece flowers to go on top.

Here's the tutorial for making the fleece flowers:

Marshmallow and Peanut Butter Playdough...Fun and Yummy!

I always try to do special projects with my girls, so today we decided to make a recipe, my friend Lesli, saw on a blog.  Marshmallow and Peanut Butter Playdough.  Sorry, I don't know who to credit with this recipe.  I never actually saw it on the blog. She just told me about it.

Basically, you take marshmallows and mix them with peanut butter. The key is to mush the ingredients together for about 7 minutes. It changes from a sticky mess to a playdough consistency.

Mariella's surprised I'm encouraging her to play with food.

This is fun stuff.  The drawbacks are... seven minutes is a long time for a kid to wait for playdough, it's brown which is definitely limiting, and it's hard to end up with any playdough since they are constantly taking a bite.  Anyway, my girls thought it was great fun and I'm glad we did it!

GraciAnn has a mouth full!
Mariella thinks this is the best playdough ever!
