Successful, Non-messy Easter Eggs

I know, I totally took the easy way out of which of my Easter Pinterest Picks I tried. Hey, I’m a full-time student with 2 full-time sons – that doesn’t make for much down time!

So here they are…the results of our family Easter egg coloring with crayons!

Mental note - buy WHITE eggs next year.

Yes, I HAD to make one like the rainbow one on Pinterest! It was just too pretty not to. Surprisingly, hubby even got in on the coloring action – he made the Charlie Brown egg! Connor made the four Angry Bird eggs, and dropped the one that looks like the pig…so he made me scotch tape it ;-).

The eggs were super-easy to color, and weren’t difficult to hold without breaking. I was actually surprised at how much fun we had…we’ll likely never go through the hassle that is “dyeing” eggs again (with super-young kids, anyways) thanks to crayons! When the boys are older, maybe we’ll try using some melted crayons and regular dye to make special effects…
