Easter eggs done!!

 

Ok, so it’s Wednesday and Easter is Sunday, and you still haven’t decorated any easter eggs?! Don’t worry, I’m with you sista! I have the perfect solution for you.

I love Easter but I hate decorating Easter eggs. Seriously, the smell of the vinegar and the imaginary scenes that play out in my head (Katie knocking the dye all over the table or my white chairs having colored hand prints on them) don’t make me just wanna bust out the eggs if you know what I mean! So then, we are off to Plan B. Easter egg decorating with no vinegar or dye..sounds like a great plan b to me already!
Do you have a hard time peeling your hard-boiled eggs? Does the shell stick to the egg? Well, do I have a trick for you! When you boil the water, add a teaspoon of baking soda. It’s like magic! When the eggs are done, all you have to do is crack the bottom and peel a little piece off and then crack the top and peel a small piece from the top..and then BLOW! lol, yes, you read right.. blow through one of the holes you just made and that little egg will come right out. Seriously..you don’t believe me? Watch this awesome YouTube video here. It works. Carson who had no idea what I was doing laughed so hard when the egg popped out that he nearly peed his pants! It was SO funny! The things you can find on YouTube are amazing!

After the eggs were boiled I grabbed some of the kids broken crayons and went to town coloring them while they were still hot. The crayons just melted onto the egg and it turned out so pretty especially when you mix different colors !! It’s was like I was Monet or something.

Melted crayons!

Just kidding…those pesky imaginary scenes get the best of me! Next, we had leftover tattoos from Carson’s birthday party so yep you guessed it..we tattooed some eggs.So easy peasy and the tattoo choices are endless. (it works really well when the eggs are still hot).

We love Pokémon!

And lastly we made egg ninjas from a kit Carson got last year. So that’s it, that’s our Easter egg decorating for this year. Some may say I’m a total slacker, but hey..the kids had fun, I had fun and we have Easter eggs to hide! Gotta work smarter not harder, especially if you are a mom! Now, get to it. How are you going to decorate YOUR eggs?
