We also made a crafty Easter Egg banner this week. First we did salad spinner art -- his favorite -- on some egg-shaped paper (from cut up paper plates), then attached them via spring-theme stickered clothespins to a ribbon (the Bibliophile picked the apple print). We also ad hocked a map for the Easter bunny to find our house, with a bunny footprint stamp made from cut up foam stickers.
Frugal Family Fun (the kids use their thumbprints to make Easter eggs - simple and fun!).
On an unrelated note, I came across this amusing book by the author of Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs: the Marshmallow Incident. It has so many great ideas in it for fun to be had with marshmallows! We did a few, but I'm hoping to do a bunch more (like painting with marshmallows - fun!) this coming week.
On a headier note, Nana visited last week, and we ended up with a pile of these! She said she often looks for workbooks, and that these are some of the best she has seen. I have to agree that they are great!

Some might think a 3 year old doesn't need a 2nd grade math workbook, and you'd be correct. But he loves them. We bought them to tear pages out and stick them in his "learning boxes," which he runs to throughout the day to find fun stuff to do. But so far he has been grabbing the book while he eats. He's learning things I had no intention of teaching him yet - like differentiating long and short vowel sounds - but he loves it. He understands it all very well, and can read it all, but his writing will need some time to catch up.
We probably wouldn't have done quite so much recently if he weren't sick with yet another head cold. Lots of time at home trying to occupy ourselves!
