I was particularly excited for this year's Easter Sunday because compared to last year when Rain pretty much did nothing but eat and sleep, she is now much more aware of her surroundings and can kind of understand the things going on around her.
We arrived the house and was greeted by a busy household with everybody preparing for Easter Sunday. I was excited because I had told my mother in law that I wanted to help with the goodies for the kids. When I entered mom's room, I immediately knew this was going to be an Easter Sunday the kids would never forget!
My mom in law has a real knack for DIYs. Even more so recently when she discovered the wonder that is Pinterest! I'm telling you, this formula below will make a simple party look extravagant, without having to spend an arm and a leg!
Divi + Pinterest = Bonggang party!
Last year the kids only used whatever plastic bag we could find to store the eggs they find. This year, mom bought plain white paper bags and then we used colored felt paper to design and personalize each bag for each child. check out Rain's bag! I made her a special Rainbow egg badge (of course hehe)

This year, mom also decided to have a Treasure Hunt game wherein the kids will follow rhyming clues and search for 5 different treasures (treats) leading up to the ultimate treasure. These pretty-looking Easter baskets were made from chip card boards, and then we glued printed photo paper that was designed and printed with love by my awesome bro-in-law, Ryan from his trusty computer! We just wrapped wide ribbons on the handles.

Another nice touch to the treasures were some simple yet meaningful Easter Sunday messages. To remind the kids what Easter is really about. Check out the Jelly Bean Story!
