I had discovered a new game for the kiddos called Tenzie. The rules and supplies are simple:
Each player needs ten dice in an individual color. Everyone rolls the first roll at the same time, decides what number they are going to collect, and after the first roll there are no turns - just roll the dice to collect all of the number decided upon. When the player has collected all ten of the same number he calls out "Tenzi!". The kiddos liked playing, there was no pouting from anyone because as soon as one game was played (it took about two minutes) another started! Fun!!
I also had some spring sun catchers for them to paint they loved doing them after running around outside and visiting the neighbor's horses.
We had Easter early as the NorDakFamilly had to head home Easter morning so egg dying happened on Thursday:
I had soaked sock blanks in water with a bit of vinegar (the Koolaid is said to have enough acid to hold the dye but I didn't want to take any chances). First the kiddos began dying:
While the kiddos blanks were steaming in the microwave, The PurlGurl started painting hers. She knew before starting just what was going on her blank:
It was a Hoppy Easter!
