Easter Tree

Oh sweet Dollar Store you provide hours of entertainment for such little money and I thank you.  This activity cost roughly $3 and it has been worth every dollar. 

I picked up a tree, Easter eggs, and little figurines (Michaels - on sale) for Ladybug and Mister to decorate.  I provided just a few eggs the first time they decorated the tree and as they grew tired of the eggs, I included little figurines.  They have redecorated the tree almost everyday.  


  1. Great idea! I love the idea of getting craft supplies at the dollar store. I love your blog and I have a question for you. You mentioned that you have been reading books about the Montessori method and that you've liked some more than others. Can you tell me which ones you would recommend? Thanks!

  2. The books I have really enjoyed are "Teach Me to Do It Myself: Montessori Activities for You and Your Child", "How To Raise An Amazing Child the Montessori Way", and "Teaching Montessori in the Home: Pre-School Years: The Pre-School Years". I have skimmed a few others, but those have stayed with me. I hope that helps.

  3. Thanks Melissa, very helpful.
