2 April - the boy Jesus

Today we talk about the boy Jesus. And how he taught in the temple.

and this maze:

and we will make salt play dough to play with:

A cup of salt
2 cups of flour
¾ cup of water
  1. In a large bowl mix salt and flour together.
  2. Gradually stir in water. Mix well until it forms a doughy consistency.
  3. Turn the dough onto the bench and kneed with your hands until smooth and combined.
  4. Make your creations using the salt dough.
  5. Place the salt dough creations into the oven at 180C.  The amount of time needed to bake depends on the size and thickness of the salt dough creations.

1 April - baby Jesus is born

I LOVE Easter. Just as much as Christmas. I want my children to love this special holiday as well so I will do last years advent calendar over again, because we loved it so much!
We also made a lent tree. We don't celebrate lent itself but I love the idea. Free images here: and other cute images here:

Here we go again:

Every day we will read a story of the life of Jesus and do some coloring and activities about that event in his life. They keep it in a special binder and add a page or two every day until Easter.

I will post the links of what we did every day.
