Spring & Easter Decor-Fun Crafts and Treats for the Kids

Spring is right around the corner. Some of you may already be experiencing it....So we've found some pretty spring decor that could also be used for Easter.  There's some fun crafts that you and the kids could do together! Some of you may think that I post holiday ideas too early....Well, my answer to that is this: If you think ahead then you aren't feeling rushed when the holiday does arrive. You have plenty of time to gather your thoughts (and crafts) so you can do what you want and still enjoy yourself.  Plus....if you know ahead of time what you need you can probably get your supplies on sale. I know Hobby Lobby always gets their holiday decor and supplies in store way in advance of the upcoming holiday and usually puts them on sale when they do. Enjoy!
