Pretend to be Nice

Teacher-Moms, on the edge…

Easter is another excuse to do crafts!

It’s time to start thinking about Easter – especially if you have kids and need to prep those crafts!  Here are some things I have done in the past.  You can always check out my pinterest page for more ideas. http://www.pinterest.com/michellekevil/

Easter 2013[Confession:  the peep house was cute and I was super proud that mine looked JUST like the picture, but it cost me 2 hours, 3 beers, and 1 girl crying before we got everyone’s done.]

I usually don’t do a lot of candy/sweet stuff, I like to give gift cards, mom coupons, and cash instead.  My kids are a little too old to be hunting for eggs (that’s a lie, I’m just too old and tired to stuff and hide them all).  The balloons work out great to address my issues.  I hang them as a curtain across each kid’s door, write H-A-P-P (you get it, one letter on each balloon) and fill them.  For my own sanity we also only pick one style to color the eggs (trying a new one each year).

egg geodes eggs

 

This year we got all science-y and made artificial geodes!  [They were crazy easy!]

Paint insides and edges of broken eggs with glue and sprinkle with alum (let dry over night).

Dissolve 3/4 cup alum in 2 cups of almost boiling water.  Pour solution into several cups and add food coloring.  Submerge eggs for 24-48 hours…VOILA!

 

 

 

 

 

Easter 2014

 

Let me know what you’re planning to do (and send directions or pictures) so we can do it too!
