Easter Egg Fun

So on Thursday, since Maggie was off of school, and while the boys napped we colored Eggs. We didn't get to do it last year, and well...she's colored them before, but she didn't really remember! So for her, it was like doing it for the first time. She had so much fun, made beautiful eggs, and was very patient in letting the eggs sit in the dye to get brighter colors. We got this sparkle kit at the grocery store and it was really fun. It comes with these bright foil sheets and some sticky glue to spread on the eggs. Then you just wrap the sheets around the eggs and press the foil on them. Only draw back, you need much more glue than the directions say! Since we were low on glue Maggie decorated a couple with stickers...they turned out really pretty as well. I love how serious her face is in a bunch of the pictures, she was really concentrating, lol. I love being crafty with her, even if it just eggs, she's so much fun to play with! I do have to say though that no one will be receiving these beautiful eggs due to the fact that after I hard-boiled them perfectly last night(at4am) I forgot to put them in the fridge after I took them out of their ice bath. yeah...these are just pretty throw aways basically. It was cute, Maggie asked if were going to eat them when I showed them to her(the plain eggs) and I said no, because I left them out(and she has cracked eggs before) said to me..."what's in 'em, not chocolate??" The look on her face was priceless!! Fionn woke up when we were almost done and came downstairs to help...help supervise that is!Fionn making sure Maggie's doing a good job

So weird...the other day I couldn't find these pictures and now they are here :o) Looks like you had a TON of fun! I can't remember the last time I colored Easter eggs...maybe I'll have to put that on my "to do list" for next year!

Hope you had a wonderfully blessed weekend!
