The Easter holiday has inspired some great children’s books. Are you looking for some new books to read with the kids over the Easter holiday? Check out some of our favorite Easter books for preschoolers. Happy Easter, Curious George Everyone’s favorite lovable monkey is back in Happy Easter, Curious George. Learn and experience with George the tradition of dyed eggs and the Easter egg hunt. “Happy Easter, Curious George is a winning holiday story based on H. A. and Margret Rey’s popular primate and painted in the original watercolor and charcoal style. One fine Easter morning, George and the man with the yellow hat head to the park. George can’t help but join in the fun when he sees children dyeing Easter eggs . . . but what’s that man doing with their prized creations? This was a delightful book for my young Curious George fan. The repetition is great for building vocabulary and familiarizing children with reading. The illustrations are simply wonderful. The glitter stickers in the back of the book are a bonus and perfect for Easter decorating. This was indeed a very cute book to read at Easter. Ollie’s Easter Eggs (reader) Olivier Dunrea is the author of many bestselling books for children. His work centers around farms, animals, architecture, and Olivier Dunreafolklore. He lives in the tiny village of Narrowsburg, New York, in the Catskill Mountains. “Gossie & Friends began in 2001 with sketches of goslings while Dunrea was staring out the studio window watching Canada geese fly overhead, honking loudly. A pair of red rubber toy boots sat on his bookshelf for some strange reason. As he sketched goslings, he started drawing them wearing red rubber boots. And that is how the idea for Gossie and her ‘bright red boots’ came to life.” In “Ollie’s Easter Eggs”- Gossie, Gertie, BooBoo, and Peedie—4 tiny, but assertive ducks from the Gossie & Friends seriesBoard Books for Easter for Toddlers—gather, dye, and hide eggs for Easter. Olliw wants eggs too though; sporting a pink bunny-eared bonnet, Ollie moves the eggs to a hiding spot, leading to the ducks searching and hunting for their eggs. My 4-year-old daughter loved this book and how sneaky Ollie was as he snatched the hidden dyed eggs and re-hid them! This is a cute addition to this popular series. My daughter had a number of the Ollie Series of board books when she was younger. The level 1 reader is just right for children beginning to sound out words. The book is written with simple sentences with lots of repetition. The repetition allows young readers to read some words along with their parents. The Great Easter Race! (Sesame Street Scribbles) Everyone’s favorite Sesame Street Character is back in The Great Easter Race! (Sesame Street Scribbles). “It’s Easter morning, and all of Sesame Street is gathered at the park for the Great Easter Race. Who will win the day? Will it be the turtle, who moves slowly and steadily toward the finish? Or will it be the bunny, who runs faster than thunder, but seems easily distracted? Fun surprises wait around every turn, so come along with Elmo and all the Sesame Street friends!” So far we’ve liked all of the Sesame Scribbles books. The illustrations in the book are bright and colorful and will engage young children. The book consists of simple sentences and rhyming text that children can interact with. This was indeed a delightful addition to my daughter’s book collection and although Easter themed, I am sure she will enjoy it when Easter is over. What is your favorite Children’s Easter book?

Get ready for the new toy craze among kids! Have you heard of squishies? Honestly, I’ll be surprised if you haven’t. Originating in Japan, the latest toy craze features small soft foam toys. They are the newest version of the stress ball, yet softer and more “kawaii” (the Japanese word for “cute”). Their scent makes the experience even more fun. Now, just in time for Easter, your children can experience the magic of Slow Rise Squishies, available exclusively at Showcase stores across Canada. The larger food Squishies, are a great addition to my daughter’s play kitchen. I couldn’t get over how much the Slow Rise Squishy Panini looks and smells just like real panini baked fresh from the oven. With a soft and super slow rising effect, your child can pretend that the dough is rising, as they proceed to bake up some fresh bread in their play oven. The Slow Rise Squishy Frosted Donut Charm looks as delicious as a real donut! The charm comes with an elastic strap, so kids can attach it to their school bag or anywhere they like! Who could resist a orange cream Popsicle? The popsicles are decorated with colorful sprinkles and look so yummy that you almost want to take a bite! All the smaller size squishies are attached to a cell phone strap. Squishies are tactile and fun for kids to “squish” over and over, hence the name. Add in the sweet scent and you have a multiple sensory toy that can be quite irresistible and perfect for pretend play. All four squishies we own are really detailed with lots of texture. Showcase has a whole range of realistic food squishies with everything from squishable bread, to cakes, donuts and macaroons. The donuts and Popsicles feature some great bright colours and a fun splattering of toppings. The Hello Kitty doughnut, is covered in red hearts! There’s also lots of pink icing and her trademark red bow. This is a smaller charm, so great for your phone or bag. Search the word “squishies” on YouTube. The Slow Rise Squishies phenomenon have become a global online video sensation with nearly 400,000 “squishies” videos featuring the many varieties of collectibles, with fans of all ages declaring their love and obsession with these irresistible squishies. On YouTube, kids, and even adults, trade squishies, and show off their squishy collection. “A single YouTube video featuring squishies has generated more than 7.8 million views, highlighting the popularity of the craze,” says Samir Kulkarni, CEO of Showcase. “When it comes to recent cool new toys: first it was Shopkins, then it was Hatchimals, now it’s Squishies.” Prices for Slow Rise Squishies range from $19.99 to $9.99.

This Easter give your children the gift of creativity. Make Easter fun, bright and colorful by making an art themed Easter basket. We have the perfect Easter basket ideas for your little artist from our friends at OOLY. My little preschooler is quite the crater. She loves getting creative. We own several products from OOLY and they have been getting their use over the last few weeks, as we lead up to Easter. Chunkies Paint Sticks are a mess free paint in a solid stick form that draws smoothly over paper without the need of brushes or water. They’re easy to use, quick drying and portable, making them perfect for little hands! Each pack includes 12 different vibrant colors. My daughter has been using the paint sticks to make pictures with and to create paper eggs to decorate our fridge with. You can find printable Easter eggs to color, decorate, and use for crafts and other Easter activities at firstpalette.com. We also used the paint sticks to decorate some plastic eggs. The painted eggs make for a simple Easter centerpiece. We also used Lil’ Poster Paints -Neon & Glitter, color luster metallic markers and mystery metallic markers to create these lovely eggs. We get lots of use out of lil’ Poster Paint Pods in our house. They are our go to paint. The Glitter and Neon lil’ Poster Paint Pods set comes with 6 glitter and 6 neon paint pods. We recently used our paint pods to paint some plastic sun catchers for Easter gift giving. My daughter is a huge fan of the glitter colors. Of course we couldn’t of did any painting without The Brush Works paintbrush set. The Brush Works makes a great all-in-one set with 7 paintbrushes of different sizes and styles including small flat, small angle, extra small round, medium round, medium filbert and large flat. I love that the set comes with so many different size brushes and I found that the brushes clean up nicely too. We had lots of fun with the 3D coloring masks. Kids get to color, inflate and play with these masks. The masks were super easy to inflate with the included straw. Once inflated, the masks stay inflated. The butterfly set comes with two masks and other 3D coloring masks sets are available. I have always been fond of colored pencils (or pencils crayons as we say here in Canada). The Jumbo Brights Neon Colored Pencils are particularly nice for kids in kindergarten or first grade. Their chunky size makes it easy for young kids to grasp onto. You get 8 colored pencils in a package. We have used the pencil crayons for numerous activities including coloring in these Bunny and Chick Stick Puppets. These easy bunny and chick stick puppets are great to use for spring or Easter-themed finger plays, stories, and learning activities. We put on a puppet show when we were done. Steps can be found at our favorite website: firstpalette.com. Sweet Stampers Double-Ended Scented Highlighters will be your daughter’s new favorite highlighter. My four year was indeed sad that she had to share them with her older sister. Sweet Stampers are double-ended markers with one side being a chiseled point felt tip highlighter and the other being a fun stamp shape. They are scented too! There are plenty of options out there when it comes to a journal. Measuring in at the standard 3.5” x 5 dimensions commonly seen in the land of pocket notebooks, International Arrivals Pocket Pal journals come in a huge array of colors and patterns from abstract to quotations to my personal; favorite “world of wisdom.” Inside, you’ll find 32 pages of lined paper that stand up well to different type pens. Pocket Pal journals come in packs of 8 and retail for $9.95. They are just slim enough to fit in your back pocket or carry along with you in your purse. My eldest daughter Megan is living with an acquired brain injury. She finds it helpful to carry one of these journals on her when she needs to write things down. Next up is Left Right Crayons, which are a huge hit in our house with my daughter. They are her go to coloring supply. Made of an eco-friendly polymer, these crayons are totally non-toxic, so even young children can colour safely. The crayons are perfect for toddlers just learning to color, as they are strong and do not break easily like normal crayons. They also prevent the mess of a wrapper.

Include the eraser in your Easter basket with a dinosaur Ty and some Giant Value Mini Eggs that you can pass off as dinosaur eggs. For young girls, OOLY has all sort of little gems, for parents looking to put a little something in the Easter basket that isn’t sweet. Some of our personal favorites are Ladybug Trio Erasers, Hunny Bunny Tape Measure, six click multi color pens and BFF scented eraser bracelets. Why use a boring black or blue pen when you could have a pen that had four or more colors? I remember these pens from my school days in the 70’s and 80’s. Of course these pens were prone to jamming, but the current model from Ooly works much more smoothly. At the click of a color-coded button you select the color you want. Ink colors include blue, green, yellow, red, purple and classic black. The Summer Fun 6 Click Pen comes in four different varieties with fun summer themed artwork on the barrels.
