Natural Dyed Eggs and other Easter Crafts

Oh the fun times we all have when sisters and kids get together!  I had a great time hanging out with my sisters yesterday along with my younger sisters children.  The boys had so much fun with their cousins too.  TJ spent a long time playing with his little cousin during MJ's nap.  It was good to see him engaging with her and playing gently. Baby James is growing so quickly too I can hardly believe it.

Easter is fast approaching so for a fun activity we made these interesting natural dyed eggs from The Chocolate Muffin Tree.  Our plan is to use them as a table centre piece for the family Easter dinner (and eat them too).
Our dyeing material spinach, blueberries, raspberries, rice (for texture)

Filling a pouch with ingredients

MJ loved scooping all the food, and eating the rice bits

Cousin E was very thoughtful about what she wanted and where to place it

Results were paler than expected but still interesting

The blue line came from some tape we had wound around the egg

Here are some other Easter crafts we have made this week.

We made a banner from the coffee filters we decorated last week.
Come join us and see what else we have been doing.  I'd always love for you to share your ideas with us.
