WS #5: Easter



Happy Easter!!! And have I got a lot of photos for this week's Weekend Snapshot/s! :D

Saturday, 08 March 2008

We were at the mall by 9am on 08 March, Saturday, so my daughter, Abby, can participate in the Easter activities organized by the mall's Kidgits Club. Compared to the last holiday-themed activity at the mall, which was Christmas, there were fewer kids that particular Saturday morning. I guess the lure of Santa is far stronger than that of the Easter Bunny. ;) But the organizers did make sure that the morning's activities were well worth getting up early for.



This is a hanging ornament that Abby made that Saturday. I love the mosaic-ish effect of this handmade craft. :D It's a small plastic plate onto which Abby glued pieces of colored paper. And just in case you were wondering, we didn't have anything to do with the egg drawings on the plate, which were cute anyway. :)



Abby is very serious with her art activites, as you can very well see.




And here she is, proud of her finished work. I had to remind her so many times that she has to wait for the glue to dry.



As expected, the Easter Bunny was present and gave every child an opportunity to have a photo taken with him. I'm so glad Abby has overcome her fear of mascots. ;)

Like in December, the kids were treated to a light breakfast by Chick-fil-A. :) Goody bags were also handed out to the kids and the moms. Not bad, ei?


Saturday, 15 March 08

The very next Saturday at 11am, we were yet in another Easter activity...bigger and a lot more fun. Our subdivision's social community organized an Easter Egg Hunt at the main park. There were giant inflatables, which a lot of the kids enjoyed to the max, and free Culver's Ice Cream for everyone!


Colorful eggs sprouted everywhere...all of which had a treat or special prize inside.

I spotted an egg-bearing tree. Hee hee!

And Abby happily picked that blue egg from the tree. ;)

Here she is with her loots. The egg hunt started at 11:30am and was over in less than two minutes, believe it or not! :D

Abby posses with the Easter Bunny, yet again. :D
From Thursday last week until the Easter Vigil on Saturday evening, we were able to focus on the more meaningful aspect of Easter, which I shared here.

My other entry's up, too! You'll find it here. I'm excited to see what the other participants posted this week. So come and join me as I hop on here for more of Weekend Snapshot. Have a great week, everyone! :D

What fun activities! Abby is a good egg hunter! We did not go to the Egg Hunting at UP's church grounds anymore because it was set at 11am and we finished the activities by 7am. The kids wanted to go home after that because we all woke up at 330am. You know we don't allow them to participate in egg hunts and Halloween. Long explanation. Perhaps I can write a post about it.

Have a great week!

Abby looked a bit less than thrilled with the first Easter Bunny! Looks like she had an eggcellent time!
