Easter is such a wonderful time to spend with friends and family. It doesn't matter how you spend it just be sure to spend it having fun with those that you love.
One of the fun activities to do during Easter is to dye eggs. There are kits with stickers, paints and dyes at every store you enter. I'll never forget dying eggs when I was little. The smell of vinegar and eggs always bring back fond Easter memories. With my own kids we have used stickers when they were little and even done the eggs that you can decorate with chalk. As they are now older I went seeking an idea fresh and fun for them. Here is what I came up with.
Kool-Aid Dyed Eggs
Bowls- as many bowls as you want colors
Hard Boiled Eggs
Directions: Fill your bowls with about 3/4 a cup of water, pour in a packet of Kool-Aid and drop your eggs into the bowl. Leave them there for about a minute, and then pull them out to dry.
Cool Whip Dyed Eggs
Hard Boiled Eggs
Neon Food Dye
Directions: Spread your cool whip out about an inch thick onto a baking sheet or platter. Drop dots of the food coloring all over the cool whip and use a spoon to gently swirl the color. Do not mix the color too much. Coat the eggs in the mixture and place them in the fridge for 30 minutes.Rinse and dry them off, and they are done!
Glow In The Dark Eggs
Hard Boiled Eggs
Glow in the dark paint
In a bowl add a drop of the glowing paint of your choice. Then add roughly the same amount of very warm water and stir until the paint is dissolved.
Add vinegar (roughly 1/4 cups) and mix well.
Tie Dyed Easter Eggs
Food coloring Vinegar
Water Spray bottle
Paper towels Glass baking dish
Vinyl, rubber or latex gloves Rubber bands
Directions: Found at ehow.com
DIY Nail Polish Marbled Eggs
Nail polish in all kinds of fun shades.
A plastic cup or bowl filled with room temperature water
Nail polish remover (to get the polish off your fingers when you’re done).
Tutorial found at HelloGlow.
For an egg dying/decorating party I would set up stations for kiddos to rotate to. Each table would have a place for kids to work, an adult to help or answer questions as well as all of the materials on hand. Snacks and music would set the dying mood and everyone would have a blast. Can't wait to plan this party!!!

Jay's party is only about a month away which means I have gone into crazy party planning overdrive. I have made list after list and made a new list of the old list that I had. In the part 1 post I showed you how I made movie reels and a Now Showing sign. This post I am going to show off a few other things I have put together.
Here are the invitations I put together. Jay loves wearing lanyards and what better way to invite her friends to a VIP style party.
What you need:
Lanyards with plastic holders at the end- I got these from the party store
I printed the invite from the computer the same size as the plastic holder
I also made a giant size popcorn box as decoration. Although, Jaylah and her cousins seem to think I should fill it up with actual popcorn I am going to fill it up with yellow and white balloons.
What you need:
A large cardboard box
Red and white duct tape
Printed popcorn sign
balloons-yellow and white
The stanchions were way more complicated than the other decorations.
What you need:
Wood dowels-got these from Home Depot
Round wooden bases-got these from the woodworking isle at Hobby Lobby
Gold spray paint
My husband was generous enough to help me with these. I first glued the wooden bases together then he drilled a hole into each set of bases. He also cut down the dowels so that they were about 38 inches tall from ground top.
After the drilling I glued the dowel into the base and let it set overnight.
The next day I pray painted the stand and foam ball a metallic gold.
I made a hole and pressed down then glued the foam ball to the top of the dowel.
The last step is the red rope. I decided to do something a little different and make a ticket chain that I taped to each dowel.
Check back to the Food and Drink section to see the cupcakes I am making for Jay's movie themed birthday party!!
