Step 1. Dipping the eggs in the colors
I’m shocked that Gabs did not break an egg or spill! I guess there is progress at 4!
The colors have come along way since my day.
Gabs, Isabella and Ava each had a board full of stickers – EXACTLY the same to avoid any potential conflicts.
The finished product. Too cute to eat.
Gabby’s little chick.
A few weeks ago, Martha Stewart Living arrived in our mailbox. On the cover were some beautiful Easter eggs. Isabella decided then and there that she and Grandma were going to make some gorgeous eggs. As she flipped through the magazine you could see her eyes widen – there were so many ideas for Easter eggs.
So we met Caroline for lunch a week or so ago. Isabella brought her inspiration and asked Grandma when they could make those (cover of the magazine) eggs. A little history, Grandma Caroline actually makes beautiful eggs almost every year – so I’m guessing that’s why Isabella thought to ask her. I don’t think I’m qualified, so I’m glad she didn’t even consider me! But Martha Stewart standards are a little high, especially for a 6 year old!
But Grandma is a good sport. So off to Michael’s she goes to get a ton of supplies to make really adorable eggs. She arrives with an overnight bag full of supplies, hard boiled eggs, raw eggs for blowing out, stickers, Paas decorating kits, ribbon, paint qtips (never saw those before) – all the goodies.
Grammy picked up Ava – she couldn’t miss out on this fun. Gabby was raring to go. Isabella of course wanted to help with everything. Grandma and Grammy set everything up. Keith and I left to go to work. When we returned around midnight, we were greeted by the most adorable selection of Easter Eggs I have ever seen.
My pictures do not do them justice. In a few days I will share Keith’s gorgeous pictures with everyone…well who am I kidding, maybe in time for Easter???
The girls really appreciated the experience. They are so proud of their handiwork. I’m not sure who is going to crack the first egg….they are just way too adorable to eat!
The beginning of a great tradition.
