Last weekend we attended an egg hunt, and general spring party. Unfortunately it poured rain the entire time we were there. I’d say we are pretty hardcore because we still participated in most of the events (not the flooded jumpy houses, to the kids great sadness). Both kids did the egg hunt in the rain (bundled up in snow suits). We came home with cheap toys and candy, tucked inside even cheaper plastic eggs.
So I was excited when I saw this idea for egg decorating! It was easy to do, no mess, and even my 1 year old who is allergic to eggs could participate. Its just strips and bits of colored tape (we use Japanese washi paper tape) stuck all over the egg.
I made this tape dispenser from an old cigar box of my fathers a long while back. The little tape ends always fall back in, but the box is so darn cute, its hard to mind too much.
We also made a giant nest for the eggs to rest in. Happy, snuggly eggs!
