easter 2When the kids were little and we were on the road, word finds, word puzzles and number games ruled. One fun game was making words out of Easter — this worked well usually for one kid but not all.

Wiki answers suggests: east, tease, teaser, rest, tear,tears, ear, ears, sat, rat, rats, tar, tars, seat, taser, tea, sear, set, star,  erase, east ease, ear, ears, eat, eats, era, eras, art, arts, ate, are, as, steer, seer, star, stare, seat, sear, sea, see, set, sat,  rate, rest, rates, tree and trees.

If you try it with Happy Easter, yahoo.com says you can add all of these: happy, prat, prats, pray, prays, rap, raps, pep, peps, perp, yap, the,there, yet, pet, pets, Pete, Peter, tap, taps, ape, apes, sappy, trap, traps, strap, straps, tarp, part, party, yeast.

No matter what words you make today, have a Happy Easter. At our house, we have Happy Eaters on a day like this. Mmmm, or nom nom as my kids say.

I spyWhile checking out some fun parenting blogs, I came across  from Glamajama. She has a blog that suggests 20 different ideas to kill time when you’re, well killing time, waiting for an appointment with the kids. One of my favorites from her list was playing “I Spy.” The “I Spy” book series includes at least a dozen books priced at $3 to $11, and my kids loved them. The authors and illustrators Jean MarzolloWalter Wick and  Carol Devine Carson must be fun people. In Wikipedia, Marzollo says that ”I Spy” books have the same rhythm and rhyme as “Old Mother Hubbard” and rap — who knew?

We were also “Where’s Waldo” fans. There’s even a 25th anniversary edition “Where’s Waldo Now“– all by Martin Hanford.
