When was the last time you dyed eggs, or carved pumpkins, or made your eggs green on St. Patrick's Day? No reason why kids get to have all the fun.
|Watch out Martha!|
Okay, we got most of these ideas from her iPhone app...
Yes she has an iPhone app specifically for easter eggs.
|Can you hear us clucking through all that glitter and Mod Podge?|
|Janessa made that grass out of green thread!|
|How did Sarah write so neatly with glitter?|
I could never do that.
|Some of the eggs were blown out so we can keep them forever, but many were hard boiled. |
Turns out blowing out eggs is way harder than it looks on Martha Stewart iPhone app.
|I got really into thread this year. Monochromatic and simple.|
|Thanks for the inspiration Jackson Pollock.|
|These were done like decoupage, with paper and Mod Podge (craft glue). |
I like this one that Mindy made, using cut out recipes, all containing eggs as an ingredient!
|This is a sprig of parsley from my garden. I glued it on, and then died the egg. |
It would have been better to dye the egg first, but oh well.
I'm happy to report that the leaf is still green after a week. The glue is acting like a preservative.
|Glitter, glitter everywhere.|
A few days after the egg party I made egg salad with the hard boiled eggs. It was delicious. It didn't last long enough for me to take a picture. Jacob had the excuse that he didn't want it to go bad, but neither one of us could stop eating it. It was really that good. I think that egg salad is one of those delicious and easy recipes that has gone out of vogue. Not sure why. Let's bring it back.
I made mine with
hard boiled eggs
finely diced sweet white onion
canola oil mayo
a dash of cayenne
a dash of paprika
