Happy Easter - Painting Eggs

Happy Easter 

We have been celebrating Easter in many ways so far, and the Easter Bunny hasn't even arrived yet and Lily already has some yummy Easter eggs.

One of the things Lily loves to do the most is paint. So it was only right that I let her paint some eggs this year. But as I did not want to waste food, I decided to get Lily fake eggs to paint rather than using real ones. They didn't cost much to do this activity and I spent £1 on the eggs and nothing on the paint as she already had lots of that. 

I let Lily choose her colours that she wanted to paint her eggs. She chose Pink, Blue, Green, and Yellow. She did really well painting them and enjoyed that she was painting something different to just painting on paper. 

After that we left them to dry. The next day they looked great and so we decided to add some decoration. I let lily choose what colours again she wanted to do and what patterns. She did some spots, stripes and also a face on one of them. 

We then left them to dry and are left with some lovely decorated eggs. Lily really enjoyed doing this activity and I can see us doing it again over the Easter holidays. 

Here are the photographs of Lily doing the activity.

  3. Easter Activities :- Will need to get organised. Though what you and Lily have done seems a good idea. As local church has a lovely Easter Event tomorrow. Following brief morning service, children usually roll their decorated eggs down the hill. Usually use boiled eggs. Though toy eggs, just as you and Lily have used, seem like a good idea / alternative. Will go shopping.

  6. Easter can be a nice time of year :- Spring. Has Lily given any thought to what usually hatch from eggs. Chicks. I love to hear the birds chirping at Springtime.
