Easter Countdown!

I made this Easter countdown for Cash, but didn't have time to post it earlier. It's pretty cute, and Cash is really excited about it.

What you need:
egg carton 12 plastic eggs
a little Easter grass number stickers/rub ons
treats for inside.
I also put an Easter Bible verse in each egg to read, and discuss with Cash when he opens each one. Some of the verses have a little note on the back that says, "Cash, look under the kitchen table." or something like that. Then when he looks, he finds another non-edible treat, like a bunny maze.
My eggs aren't as cute as the ones that gave me the idea, but I didn't have any number stickers or rub-ons. I didn't want to wait another day to pick some up, so I just used a purple sharpie...yeah, not super cute. Cash didn't seem to mind, so ok it'll work. :)
PS- I took these pic's late at night in my living room, so it wasn't the best lighting. I messed with the color, just to make them more interesting... my artistic flare coming out. (um...not really.)

PSS- If you want to do this, but haven't started, you could always do a 6 egg countdown.

Enjoy, and HAPPY EASTER!
