Easter is coming up soon and I'm starting to get the house ready and plan some fun activities for my daughter. She's six and loves when the Easter Bunny comes to visit. I am using this to my advantage by reminding her that the Easter bunny only comes and hides eggs for kids who are well behaved, respectful to their parents and have clean, brushed hair.
Before we get started make sure you download and print off this new set of printables I created. These Easter themed prints are free when you subscribe via the form below and the link to the files will be sent directly to your email address.
Feel free to hang these prints up in your home, office or classroom but remember they are for personal use only (ie. don't sell them).
