Sometimes being a parent requires you to undertake tasks outside your comfort zone. For example decorate eggs for Easter. Sounds simple enough doesn't it?! No. Because it involves 2 things I spectacularly suck at. Craft and artistic ability.
But then, I remembered something I saw last year. Now I cannot remember where I saw it, but the idea stayed with me. Simple but effective. I would tattoo our eggs.
You remember the temporary tattoos you used to play with as a kid? Where you wet the backing paper to remove the transfer onto yourself? Well I did that. But to eggs. And yes, while I was doing it I did question my sanity slighty- but LOOK HOW PRETTY THEY ARE!!!
If you are letting children help I would hard boil them first, just in case, but Syd is too small to help, and the others were at school I took the risky route and did them fresh. Of course people cleverer than I could probably do that thing with a pin and decorate empty shells, but my Grandmothers never taught me to suck eggs! If empty, these would make really lovely decorations, and with a coat of varnish could last a long time, or you could just scramble them for lunch, YUM!
