Coloring Easter Eggs with Crayons for toddlers

Maybe its just be, but the thought of trying to dye eggs with colored water and little metal holders with little cups sounds like a disaster to me.  I found (I mean the Easter Bunny) found these cute plain white Color your own Easter eggs at Five Below.  Each package came with 6 eggs and a four pack of crayons for only $2 each. My kids gave them a try on Easter.  Above is my son’s beautiful egg.  Below is his younger sister’s egg.

My daughter isn’t quite 2 yet, so coloring is still a work in progress.  Although if you look on her tray she has some very pretty eggs. I love the pastel colors of the crayons. She colored a few eggs, then she got a little bored, so I asked her if she wanted to paint some eggs.  She was so excited!  I squirted some washable finger paints on a paper plate and a gave her a paint brush and she thoroughly enjoyed it.  My son is not really into getting messy, so he stuck with the crayons.

My daughter, on the other hand, painted the eggs and then, of course, painted herself. She loves to paint her hands!!  She would have painted more of herself it she didn’t have her brother’s old pajamas covering most of her body ;).

I love washable paint, it is so easy to wash off.  I took a few paper towels and wiped off the paint on her hands and then gave her a Tupperware bowl of water to wash them off.  She loves this part as well, as she gets some water play time.  Overall, I think the three of us agree, we had a great time for only $4.  We also now have some personalized eggs we can use next year.

Hi I'm Lo and I love to sew and I also love to play with my two children! I am a work at home Mom of two toddlers.  I never planned on staying home with the kids, however when I was 8 and 1/2 months pregnant with my first child, Little Dude, I was unexpectedly let go from my corporate job.  With a newborn and a tough job market, I decided to buy a Brother Sewing/Embroidery Machine and taught myself to sew. I would like to thank the many bloggers, youtube videos I have watched and PDF pattern designers for all their help. With a degree in International Business from Blaise-Pascal University in France I decided to open my own business, an Etsy shop.  I started making baby leg warmers and then added embroidered bodysuits.  I was so busy I couldn't keep up and had to seek out third party help. After my second child, Baby Girl, life became super busy.  There is something about little girls clothes that makes them so much fun to create.  I started venturing out to more articles of clothing.  It has been a fun adventure. I am learning as I go.  I sometimes skip steps or take short cuts, sometimes I take a long road to get where I need to go.  I don't think sewing needs to be perfect, I think it should be fun!!
