New life - Easter part 2

So, we've never really known what to do with Easter Saturday before. But then I came across these Easter Story cookies or Resurrection cookies as they are sometimes called.

I was intrigued to see how they would work. Each ingredient tells a different part of the Easter story that corresponds to the bible verses. You then put them in a pre-heated oven (tomb) switch the oven off and seal them up overnight. Sunday morning, you open the oven door and find these, little hollow meringues just like an empty tomb. The girls really enjoyed doing this and was a great way of understanding more about Easter. It also made for an interesting breakfast combined with the finds of the egg hunt!



We also had our most successful and enjoyable attempt at egg dying and decorating yet! My youngest Whitething was definitely the best egg blower! We had a family friend round and it kept us all occupied on a rainy bank holiday! Most enjoyable!


Here is the eldest's Whitethings photo of our Easter fireplace. I'm not 100% happy yet with my Easter tree but it's getting there, year by year!



Hope you've all had a lovely family time together,

    I love the Eeaster tree too. Such a shame it's all over and the weather is vile. HATE days like this.
    Stay warm and dry.
