To start preparing for April, though, I've already started searching for ideas. Not only do I hope this post helps some of you with young kids, it also helps me keep things all in one place! So enjoy these ideas :-)
Crafts by Amanda gives a video tutorial on how to make these adorable lambs . They are great for Easter but also would great for other Bible Story lessons or Vacation Bible School

Oopsey-Daisy has put together a "Z is for Zoo" packet. She always does such a fabulous job with so many great ideas!
I never used the Resurrection eggs when I taught - the younger grades always used them - but now with little kids of my own I really love the concept. Dukes and Duchessess gives this easy less on how to make them along with a printable with the meanings and scripture.
Mydeliciousambiguity gives a bunch of activities to do with Easter Eggs.Song and Fingerplay book
Domesticgoddesque gives some really cute ideas for Easter crafts - one uses paint and bubble wrap.
Handprint and Footprint Art shows a cute calendar craft to do with, what else? Footprints.
2 Teaching Mommies has created a Flower unit that you can get for a donation of $2.00. The donation is being used to help them raise funds to go to a blog conference. There are many sites that do units like this and sell them for between $2.00-$3.00 so I feel it is a fair price - the fact that it is a donation is just another way to give.
Itsy Bitsy Learners also has a unit for sale for $3.50 that is focused on Pirates. (Not sure how this fits into spring but I liked it so it's going on this page LOL)
I'm still digging for some more spring ideas - I think because Easter isn't until the end of April there hasn't been quite as much popping up yet. That's ok - there are so many great ideas out there, I know I can fill up our calendar! Come back next week for more ideas (because I know I'll find them!) as well as a link to our calendar as well.
Happy planning :-)
