I just purchased three of these cute Easter Totes from Lands End. I also managed to purchase a women’s swim tunic as well for summer vacation and swimming.
Lands’ End has a wonderful selection of Easter-inspired products, including these adorable customizable Easter totes perfect for the little ones! What I love about these totes is that they are made with quality canvas and I hope my kids use them as keepsake items when they get older. While I didn’t get mine personalized, you can personalize yours although it may not make it to your house this Easter if you do get it personalized.
Currently they are on sale for $9.99 each and you can them by going to LandsEnd.com or the link here!
I got my son this one:

Another fun filled weekend has passed as our household gears up for a roadtrip to San Antonio next week. I’m proud to participate in another wonderful weekend recap with Lisa from Showered With Design and .
The 2014 Toyota Sienna
I have the opportunity to be a part of the Toyota Carpool Diaries program. This has been exciting because I am in the market for a new vehicle and being able to experience the features of the Toyota Sienna with my family is a wonderful experience. So far, with all the traveling back and forth to work, this is the first weekend that we got to have sum fun with the minivan.
I would not normally be able to afford this minivan because I thought it wouldn’t be great on gas. I found filling up the tank only cost me $40 and some change here in Dallas-Fort Worth. It is different from my V6 sedan in that I fill that car up once a week, while this one requires more frequent fill ups. In the photo above, we spent some time at the Joseph House in Haltom City. Part of World Covenant Ministries they provide low cost and sometimes free grocery and household items to families. They also accept donations.
Here’s my Baby B as I was buckling her up in the carseat. She happens to love the widescreen DVD and we watched Disney’s Planes and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 from RedBox. Actually it was more like she watched the movies.
By now you are probably sick of seeing how many eggs people dyed for Easter on Instagram. Well I started out with a dozen but ended up with 6. I burned some and then some of the shells cracked so I ended up with 6 eggs that could be dyed for Easter. So then it was plastic eggs with money and/or candy in them at the Easter egg hunt. She didn’t seem to mind one bit.
We stopped off at Main Street Bistro and Bakery in Grapevine for coffee and some sightseeing before Easter Brunch at the Gaylord Texan Resort.

I rather enjoyed the brunch at the Riverwalk Cantina. It was a last minute thing.

The Easter holidays don’t always bring the best weather with them. Although spring should have sprung by now, whether it has or not is another thing entirely. If the weather’s looking disappointing and your kids are beginning to bounce off the walls after being stuck inside for days on end, then why not get crafty with the whole family? Kids love arts and crafts and anything messy and creative so we’ve come up with a few seasonal craft activities that the whole family can enjoy together, and they won’t break the bank either!
Make Easter cards
Need to keep the kids entertained? Need to send Easter cards to friends and family? Get both done at once by getting the kids to make them! Buy a cheap packet of blank cards and have your kids decorate them with your help. You could draw patterned Easter eggs or baby chicks on the front of the cards for your kids to colour in or collage onto with glitter and feathers and other shiny bits and pieces. There’s also a huge selection of templates available on the internet if your kids are a bit younger and you’re lacking in artistic ability.
- Making and painting clay bowls and pots
Kids love any excuse to get messy so clay is a great material to give to kids to get crafty with. Air drying clay is the easiest to use and can be purchased from most craft shops. Your kids will have fun making all sorts of clay models and figurines, but for an Easter theme try getting them to make bowls, mugs or flower pots to decorate with paint. An Easter bowl could be made to decorate and fill with chocolate eggs, a painted spring flower pot to plant some seeds in, or a mug with a design painted onto it to give as an Easter gift, maybe fill it with chocolate eggs to give to a friend or family member.
- Egg blowing and painting
Egg blowing and decorating has been around for generations but this Easter craft is still very popular with kids. Carefully pierce each end of the egg and then insert a skewer and jiggle it around very carefully to break up the egg yolk. Now blow the contents out into a bowl (you could keep this for baking Easter treats). Rinse the egg out with water by placing your finger over the bottom hole and running some water over the top hole, shake it around a bit before blowing the water out. Now gather as many crafty bits; glitter, sequins, feathers and paints as you can find and let your kids go wild decorating them. Chances are you’ll end up with more glitter, feathers and paint on the kids than on the eggs, but they’ll enjoy it!
- Attend an Easter craft workshop or Easter egg trail in your area
There are plenty of Easter workshops, clubs and events to attend no matter where in the world you are. Whether you want to go on an Easter egg hunt in California, egg blowing and decorating in Australia or do some Easter printing onto mugs in London, there will be plenty of local Easter activities for the whole family being held in your area.
- Making Easter bonnets or baskets
This activity can be as ambitious as you want it to be. You can either buy some baskets and/or bonnets and let your kids loose decorating, painting and collaging onto them. Or you can make them from scratch by using cardboard; there are plenty of templates on the internet if you want to go for this option.
