Jewelled Easter Egg Craft

We wanted to try something a bit different this year with our Easter eggs. My super creative co-worker (she always amazes me with the awesome ideas she comes up with!) had this great idea to glitter and jewel her Easter eggs!

I thought this was such an awesome (and frugal idea!). The whole craft cost us under four dollars! I went to the dollar store and purchased a package of jewel stickers for two dollars – I chose black and white but they had such a great variety of different colours.

We boiled our eggs like normal, let them cool and then patted them dry. We then stuck the stickers on and they stuck perfectly (I was a bit worried that they would fall off!) – they even survived being thrown across the floor when my two year wanted to use the eggs as a ball!!

My boys enjoyed the craft but really missed dipping their eggs in dye. Next year we decided we would dip the eggs first in dye and when they were dry we would put the jewels on. What crafts did you try out this year with your family?

ABC Friday Photo Share…L is for LEGO King!

It’s that time again!!

ABC Friday Photo Share at Mom vs the Boys and Maple Leaf Mommy!

This week L is for LEGO King in our home!

Our eldest loves his Lego (youngest is on his way there but he mainly plays with the characters). He plays with it all the time and is always making up new bases, houses, battleships, helicopters, monsters – his list is endless!
I love how it gives him hours of creative play. He never makes the same item over again and his ideas are so imaginative!
Link up your ABC Friday photo share post here.
