Looking for ways to celebrate Earth Day with the kids? How about simply heading out into the yard for a flower pot planting party? Sure, you may have to head to the garden center first to gather some supplies, but after that, this party can really be put together quickly - even at the last minute! So go ahead and invite the neighborhood kids to join yours for a celebration of Mother Earth that will truly bring more beauty into your world.

Easter Party Activity: Egg Coloring

Friday April 18, 2014

One of our family's favorite Easter traditions is dyeing and decorating Easter eggs. We like to do this on Holy Saturday, and then set the beautiful, pastel colored eggs out in a bowl for the Easter bunny to admire. Sometimes, he even hides a few of them, along with the plastic eggs he always brings.

If you're looking for a way to spend the Saturday before Easter, why not gather your kids, the neighbors or a couple of friends for an impromptu egg-coloring party? This is a great way to corral some of that pre-holiday energy that often finds kids hopping like bunnies themselves on the eve of this spring celebration.

Happy Easter to those who celebrate. And may all of your spring celebrations be as brilliantly colorful as that bowl of Easter eggs.

Do you have any egg-coloring traditions or tips to share? Please leave a comment, we'd love to hear from you!

Celebrating Passover with Kids

Thursday April 10, 2014

When my first-born was a little girl, she attended preschool in a Jewish Community Center. In the three years she was enrolled there, we learned a lot about Hebrew holidays and celebrations. Of all the events we attended there, the annual seder was the celebration I enjoyed most.

It's been a few years since those celebrations and each year, as Passover approaches, I often reflect and sometimes wish my second daughter had also been able to share in the same rich history and learning experiences as her sister. However, we have since moved to another state where the same opportunities aren't readily available.

If you're lucky enough to have kids with which to celebrate a seder this year, perhaps this collection of tips for celebrating Passover with kids can add to the fun.
