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:
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!
