When you have children, your collection of artwork and mementos can fill a museum and there’s no way to display all of the beautiful treasures created just for you. I like to use holidays to decorate using my children’s gifts to decorate. We have been blowing out eggs for Easter for 28 years and we now do it with my grandson. You can watch your child’s creativity grow as you pull the eggs from the past years. We look back at the eggs and see what or “who” they loved that year 🙂 Don’t forget to make eggs for grandma, grandpa and other family members as well.
Follow these simple steps for Easter eggs you can keep forever.
- Purchase a dozen eggs for each child
- Take a push pin or T-pin and create a hole on one side of the egg (I make it about the size of a pin head)
- Create a hole on the opposite side of the egg slightly larger (We will be covering the holes so you can make the 2nd hole double the size
- Blow into the smaller hole, holding the egg over a bowl (be careful when you get to the yolk so you don’t have a blow-out
- TIP: If you get light headed easily, you can use a baby snot sucker ….you know that blue thing you use when their infants. Please buy a new one, place it over the smaller hole and gently squeeze the air into the egg
- Once all the eggs are blown out, rinse your eggs well and let dry
- Color and decorate your eggs as you normally do
- TIP: Coloring will get into the egg so dry them in the egg cartons and have paper towels ready to soak up the liquid in the bottom of each egg compartment
- Let eggs dry completely
To Decorate The Eggs For hanging
- Fire up your glue gun
- Cut ribbon to desired length (usually about 8-10 inches)
- On the top hole, glue the end of the ribbon. Glue the other end of the ribbon on the same hole. You now have a hanging egg
- To cover the bottom hole – get creative, I glue small jewels
- Write the child’s name & year with a skinny sharpie on the bottom of the egg
You now have a treasure you can keep forever and use for decorating. They also make great conversation pieces at Easter dinner. Remember when…………..
