We have had a lot of fun this week beginning our Easter traditions. This is the first year that Charlie really understands what is going on, and of course if Charlie likes it Maddie is totally into it! We have been learning a lot with our resurrection eggs and some library books about the whole point of Easter-that Jesus died and was resurrected. We have also been doing the other Easter stuff, like Easter egg hunts and dying eggs. We dyed our eggs on Monday, and I am just now getting around to posting about it!
I had aspirations to do lots of great, creative things with our Easter eggs, but ended up just buying the good ol’ Paas Easter egg kit and going for it. We didn’t even write on them with crayons before we dyed them! Maybe next year…
Now the kids can’t wait to destroy the eggs on Easter day! They want to crack them open so badly.
I have seen some other really cool things with Easter eggs. One of my favorite blogs is Glitter ‘N Glue, and she had a great post today featuring DIY Glittered Easter eggs. I wish I had seen this before we dyed our eggs! Click on the link to see her idea: http://glitternglue.com/2013/03/28/diy-decorative-glittered-easter-eggs/.
This site also has some really cool ideas: http://www.thegirlcreative.com/2013/03/24/creative-ways-to-decorate-easter-eggs.html.
Next year, I am definitely getting more creative with our eggs! Or I may just stay up late one night and do it myself…
