DIY: Easter Egg Goodness...

I love Easter, Spring and all the colors they bring. Bright colorful Easter Eggs are the most fun! The littles and I enjoy getting creative with our eggs each year!


In prepration for this year's festivities, this past weekend we cleaned and prepped our eggs and colored them in bright colors.


Using a Dremel, such a handy tool, a steady hand made holes in each end of the egg. The littles, using a piece of copper wire broke up the yolk and white inside making it easier to blow them out.

Save the egg fillings for later use. A cleaned out creamer container is perfect for this!

As a family we gather every year, as do many. We always have games and giggles and lots of delicious food. The Littles and their cousins have a fabulous time, as do the adults! This year I've decided to change up the egg hunt just a little. I'm the mom so I can do that. I've taken the beautiful, blown, colored eggs and created tiny tags for inside. Some have sweet sayings, some are instructions for a silly or nice gesture, but some are "winners". Who doesn't love a surprise?

This is what our eggs contain but you can put whatever you like:
· Hoppy Easter!
· You WIN $$$
· Fabulous Family Time
· Run around the house 3x!
· Hop on 1 foot for 10 sec.
· You WIN, pick a treat!
· Say something nice about your brother/sister.
· Make funny faces!
· You WIN a coloring pack!
· Have a great day!
· You WIN $$$
· Walk with an egg on a spoon!

The eggs from which one end was removed I decided would make a nice presentation for a yummy treat. After emptying, cleaning, and coloring the eggs they were ready to fill. Mixing chocolate chips and peanut butter chips I melted them in a bowl over hot water. Once cool enough to the touch but still runny I transferred the mixture to a large Ziploc bag and cut the corner off making a very efficient way to fill the eggs. I then let them harden in the refrigerator and tada!
Of course you can use any chocolate and a few I filled with candy.

I cut bright colors of felt into flower shapes and set them in an antique cupcake pan. I think this made a nice cushion for the filled eggs and great presentation overall!
