7 ways to decorate eggs - I love the rubber band method!12 printable Easter craftsJust a week and a half until Easter! Of course, looking out my window this morning you certainly wouldn't know Spring is here - according to the calendar! As I write this it is 20 degrees outside and snowing, but Spring is just around the corner which means warmer weather will be here soon! WooHoo!

So, as I thought about Easter I wanted to find some fun craft ideas . . . of course I checked the ideas on Pinterest! Take a look at some of what I found . . . 

    Easter eggs...It will drive people crazy wondering how you got the candy inside!
  • Surprise-inside "eggs"! I tried to follow the link on Pinterest, but they said it was an  unsafe" site. But the photos do a pretty good job of showing how to make these fun treats! My guess is you use a liquid starch, mod-podge or glue/water mix to "paint" over the yarn/string. Once it dried it would be "stiff" so you could "pop" the balloon, remove the balloon and end up with candy inside the yarn/string "egg"! Looks like a fun project to either make and surprise your grandchildren with them or have them help make and then give to friends, family or neighbors!
