WW #109: Making Easter Eggs


Hi there guys and Happy Easter! Our family’s easter activities consisted of a lot of painting – both of eggs and of the girls nails.

How does your family celebrate Easter? Comment below and enter our weekly giveaway!
First, we painted and decorated some eggs. The girls opted for brighter pastel colors and loaded on lots of stickers. The boys sought more muted colors and forewent additional designs. I was thrilled they wanted to dye and decorate Easter eggs at all. dying eggs

Many of you probably have your own elaborate methods of dying eggs. We took the easy route of the store-bought boxes! With quite a bit of cooking to do, I was happy to cut a corner. These boxes, though, offered ample opportunity for everyone to do their own thing.

With the eggs dyed and drying, I headed out with the girls for our bi-annual manicure. Thanksgiving and Easter weekend, I let them get their nails painted. Funny that they always seem to know beforehand exactly what colors and designs they would like.
This year, both went for alternating blue and pink nails with sparkles. These made for some pretty cute nails for little girls.girls nails girls nails getting painted cute nails for little girls pretty nails for little girls
So with some fancy nails, we’re ready for Easter mass tomorrow. The eggs will make a pretty centerpiece for our table. Now if only the Easter bunny can get her act together.
Thanks so much for reading and Happy Easter!
