More Easter Ideas

Since it is Wednesday and Easter is just around the corner I thought I would give an idea on decorating your eggs without all the dye and mess. I love the dye and mess myself, but I know there are many parents out there that would prefer not to go that route.


So this is a very simple idea and perfect for those families that don't have alot of down time to be able to dye their eggs.


craft or white glue
paint brush
craft supplies (sprinkles, sequins, buttons, beads, tissue paper, glitter,pompom balls,sticker etc.)


The easiest way to do this is poor the glue in a bowl, use a paint brush to brush the glue on the egg
Then decorate it, if you are using things like glitter or sequins your best bet is to roll the egg in it.
Then let the egg dry :)

Another thing you could do is put dots of glue on the egg or lines of glue and just cover the glued part with your decorations GO Wild with this

Here is a Quick and Easy Dinner~Takes about 20-30 min Makes 4 servings
