The Easter Advent activities for the last few days have been kid inspired/requested and basically all about eggs
We made chocolate Half Eggs
I borrowed these molds from my mother in law over a year ago (anyone else in the family want to use them??)
Inspired by the best rocky road I have ever had at my brothers a few months ago (White Lindt chocolate, macadamia nuts, marshmallow, Turkish delight - IT WAS DIVINE) I made a similar one with mashmallow, turkish delight and chocolate melts. The girls put 100's and 1000's on theirs
I love these foil painted eggs from Kids Craft Weekly sign up for her enewsletters.. she has lots of ideas.. this month version is all about eggs
Basically cut out a carboard egg (we used cereal boxes) cover in Alfoil and paint all over
Then using a cotton bud make patterns on the egg
Our finished eggs, I am going to stick them on the window
We made Easter Cards for our neighbours and teachers using egg stickers
We Dyed Eggs - this time I used a $4.95 egg dyeing kit from Spotlight. It came with containers, nifty lifter, wax crayon and dye tablets. The pink and purple were too light so I added some extra food colouring.
This is what happens when dyeing eggs with 2 year olds
Our Eggs - we made one each.
The girls loved it, so we will be dyeing eggs again before Easter is up I think
Thats it for the last few days.. Oh I did go to an awesome Twilight Bookclub with friends on Friday :) and it has been raining here lots... perfect twilight weather!!
