This year, my parents invited us all to their house for Easter, where we reinstated the tradition of painting eggs and trying to find them in the garden. I brought some water colours home and the whole family was convinced to paint the eggs. We also used some of those egg painting tablets in six colours to give our boiled eggs a base coat on Saturday evening while my dad was preparing dinner. There were quite a number of different types of eggs; sexy ladies, aliens, stripes, minions, cloudy ones, a hedgehog and other indescribable things. In total, 20 eggs were painted and on Sunday morning my mother hid them and the garden and we had to go find them. The neighbours, I think, found it very intriguing to see 5 adults walking around a garden and looking in and behind every plant. We enjoyed it and managed to find all the big ones, and 19/20 of the small chocolate ones. Hopefully we can improve on this next year!
The ones I made included one with two colours base coat and stickers, a striped one, one alien and a triple eyed minion. I have been more creative in the past, but it didn’t matter. We had an hour of fun and even my non crafty brother participated and managed to create some nice eggs.
