Helping the Easter Bunny

We've enjoyed spending several Lenten Fridays this year with some dear friends. This Friday, instead of going to a fish fry, we got together for some cheese and veggie pizza and then we did a fun little service project.

We decided to help the Easter Bunny reach people who may be in shelters or on the streets. We decorated some goody bags and filled them with some basic necessities as well as some treats.

Miss E. (on the right) was our awesome leader... explaining the directions.

Decorating the bags was lots of fun!
After decorating each bag, the children had fun placing one of each item inside (along with some Easter grass of course).
We even got Jon to take a break from taxes to join in the fun.

Our friends will take the bags to a Catholic agency who will distribute them. This was such a perfect project for our kids. They really enjoyed it and were able to do the work themselves. We're very thankful that our friends invited us to help!
