Here’s a fun craft to do with the kiddos during the Easter holiday! Make several to decorate the house for holiday festivities.
You’ll need: Colorful paper (kiddos can pick their favorites) Ruler
Scissors/children-safe scissors Easter Egg template
To make: Use the template to cut out your egg shape. Using the ruler, mark lines an inch apart. Using the scissors, cut along the lines. Next, cut several 1/2 inch wide strips of colorful paper. Weave the strips of paper into the egg shape.
We look forward to seeing y’all here at the farm for loads of Easter fun!
The holidays are a great time to gather up the kiddos and make fun Christmas crafts. The great thing about this particular project is that one of the supplies is abundant in most households: empty toilet paper tubes.
You’ll need: Scissors
Paint and brushes
Glitter, puffballs, sequins, or whatever glitzy doodads your heart desires
Empty toilet paper tubes
To make: Using the pencil, draw out the shape of tree you’d like, make sure that the points of your tree meet at the side. Leave enough room at the bottom for a base.
Carefully cut along the lines (parents can do this for the real little ones). Once your tree is cut out, paint the trees whatever color you or your little ones like. Washable acrylic paint is great for clothes and table tops.
Once the pain dries, decorate your trees with pain, glitter, stickers, etc. The kids can even stick a photo of themselves on the tree as a cute gift to the grandparents!

Strawberry season is short, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy these farm-fresh fruits all year long. Follow these steps to properly freeze strawberries!
You’ll need: 4-6 lbs fresh strawberries Half baker sheets (fit best in most freezers) Parchment paper
To freeze: Gently wash berries under tap water. If berries are mushy or damaged, remove them. Spread your berries out on a towel and allow them to air dry. Using your paring knife, hull the berries by removing the stem and the bit underneath. You can also just slice the top of the berry off, but you get more of the fruit with hulling. Line baker sheets with parchment paper and freeze the berries overnight. When completely frozen, put berries in heavy duty freezer bags and label with the date. Frozen strawberries will last up to one year.
