This morning we colored our Easter eggs. Typically we shoot for the brightest colored eggs and leave it at that. We haven’t done a lot of fancy stickers or shrink wrap kits but occasionally will use the wax crayon to write names or make stripes or polk-a-dots.
(The wonder of the wax crayon…. you never quite know how it will turn out. They were happy with what they saw!)
(The whisk worked well for a bit, putting the egg inside the whisk to prevent cracking, however Nolan decided he’d just use the other end)
We all agree that we love the brighter eggs best. We used food coloring instead of a store bought kit to get some more vivint colors.
This year, after getting all the eggs colored, I decided we’d get a little more creative. A few days ago I saw a friend on facebook post a picture of her eggs that were decorated as adorable little monsters and I thought the boys would love this idea. So I dug out some craft supplies, made one little monster and let them create the rest. However, it turns out Ricky is kind of a traditionalist and preferred the plain, bright, colored eggs. Benny decided he liked his striped eggs best and didn’t want to make a monster, however he did add 2 tiny eyes to the stripes. Nolan was the only one who actually made a monster egg…. and in reality he just dictated to me where to put the eyes and rest as he was heading out the door to go play. So, there I sat, on my own creating little monster eggs, for no other reason that to feed my own creativity.
Oh well, I had fun and the boys did like my finished project even if they didn’t help much.
Tomorrow is our annual egg hunt in our circle and we’re all excited.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
