This is the week we all put some time aside to have some fun and colour some easter eggs with the kids, right?
I think that some of my favourite memories are of easter colour – and what better way to get some of those simple pastels and those bright fascinating colours into your home and your children’s memories than colouring easter eggs – both naturally and with easy food colour dye.
Plain and decorative – you can do some of each or choose a theme – that’s always fun and can be very powerful if you are using them to decorate your home.
If it’s not on your agenda, do your best to colour your world, make a few memories, have some fun and decorate some pretty eggs to boot!
If your kids are older, or even too old to be interested, make some for yourself and your home – some of the ideas below will help you make some awesome displays.
