It's still fun for little ones (and grown ups) whether you have an event to join in with or not so I'm sharing the method with you to try at home, over the Easter holidays maybe when the kids need entertaining more so than usual. It's very easy to do.
Pens, paint, glue, card, glitter (whatever you have for decoration)
1. Boil some water in a pan and then add your eggs. The water should cover the eggs completely.
2. Cook the eggs until they are hard boiled which will usually take around 5-10 mins. I tend to leave them for 10 mins to be sure.
TIP Add a few extra eggs to the pan just incase shells split or someone drops one to save cooking more later!
3. Once boiled, carefully remove the eggs from the pan and put them on a plate to cool.
4. Once cool its time to decorate them!
Here are the mini mes creations from last year:
You can decorate them however you like, favourite characters, animals, people.... the list is endless.
We haven't completed this years entries as yet but this post will be updated shortly with pics of them for inspiration. We have some great ideas in mind already!
