Hippity hop hop Easter’s on its way! And yes, once again, the Keep Calm-o-matic is making me smile because its so easy to make silly but fun images.

We’re in the midst of Spring Break around here and it’s going to culminate with Easter on March 31st. If your little ones are bouncing off the walls here are some fun Easter and Spring themed printables that you can quickly download and print to help rein them in for some quiet time.

Be artistic: Can’t go wrong with coloring pages! Grab a fresh new set of markers and no one can resist these cute coloring pages

Use your brain part 1: Math & Word Puzzles – I like to try and keep my kids a little bit engaged during the holidays. To that end, I like to mix it up with math or word puzzles like these.

Use your brain part 2: Mazes – help kids practice fine motor skills and learn cause & effect as well as reasoning. Another great way to get thim to sit down and focus.

Crafty Crafty! Make some fun Easter/Spring themed crafts! Some of my faves? First, making salt dough Easter eggs (I do this at Christmas too and make ornaments to hang) because salt dough is one of the easiest things to make (1 cup salt to 2 cups flour mixed with about a cup of water then you bake them at low temp to dry them out) and combines 2 beloved activities; playdough and painting. And second these super cute chick and bunny made from plastic cups just because they are uber adorable.

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your Spring Break and have a happy Easter!
