HAPPY EASTER!

The kids and I spent the weekend decorating our eggs (yeah, I put that off until the last minute).  This year I prepped 5 dozen!  We painted some, glittered some, dyed some.. A little bit of everything.  I blew half of them out and I hard boiled the other half.

The boiled ones we dyed with traditional food coloring:

The kids liked painting the blown ones with craft paint:.

It is so funny how their eggs reflect their personalities.  Wild and loud and colorful from the 8 year old:

Quieter and more subdued from the 4 year old:

I messed around a little with mine, and even attempted the ‘ombre’ look (since it wouldn’t be 2014 if there was some ombre involved!)

I like the the chalky effect you get from the craft paint on the egg shells:Painted eggs
I gathered them all up and displayed them on the mantle:

And of course this morning we had our annual Easter egg hunt.  And as the kids emptied their eggs, their little brother tried to steal their swag.

It has been a fun-filled Easter weekend.   I hope yours was equally wonderful!
