I hope you are all having a wonderful and peaceful Easter!
My husband and I awoke very early to Monkey 7's shrieks of joy, "The bunny came! The bunny came!" It had been storming all morning, so the bunny couldn't hide eggs outdoors. We had a quick indoor egg hunt, and then the Monkeys enjoyed way too much candy -- all before breakfast. We went to Mass, and then ate a simple lunch before my sweet husband had to go to work.
This afternoon, the Monkeys and I decorated eggs. We were inspired by this slideshow, plus this article in Family Fun magazine, so we couldn't wait to get started!
I love that everyone came up with different ideas and techniques:
Monkey 6's little chicken is so cute!
The tiny Frankenstein and bunny are adorable. . . both made by Monkey 5. Monkey 4 created the swirly-dyed egg. . . and has green-stained fingertips to prove it.
Monkey 3 was fond of glitter today. (I wonder if the glitter ever really goes away?) Monkey 2 made the felt-embellished eggs behind the glittered eggs.
Monkey 1 came up with these lovelies:
My sweet husband has to wear a tie to work, so he had plenty of ties we could use for the tie-dye technique:
They turned out very interesting.
Some of us will be enjoying these hard-boiled eggs for supper tonight!
