Coloring Easter Eggs

Last week on Good Friday, we had friends come over to enjoy the day off from school for some playtime and coloring of Easter eggs. The weather was perfect, so we set up a table in the backyard for the egg coloring. We had 12 different egg dyes and 5 dozen eggs. Perfect for six kids to dive in for some messy, creative time.

We added some olive oil to some of the egg dyes and it created a pretty cool tie dyed effect. The main problem with this technique is that the egg shell is oily and it doesn't really wipe off. We are not really big hard boiled egg eaters, so it was more about the fun of dying the eggs rather than how they would look later.

Of course, I needed to document the event with a layout! My favorite thing about this page is the Heidi Swapp color magic letters that I used for the title. They start out plain white and then you can mist them to make them any color.

Since I knew that I wanted a variety of colors of letters, I spread the letter stickers out that were going to be the title on my Bazzill splat mat so that they could be misted. Nothing sticks to the mat, so the alphas were easy to peel up after misting. I didn't want to mist the entire alpha page since I didn't want to color all of the letters.

After spraying the mist, the letters just needed a little blotting with a paper towel and then they were peeled up and stuck to the layout.

Pretty cool stickers! I'm flying through my first pack of alphas and think I may need another one. 

Thanks for stopping by today!
