Faux Faberge Eggs!

 This is the last of our egg inspired posts for the month of April.  Making these faux Faberge eggs is a fun and creative way to use up all those left over eggs from Easter.  The kids will love to blow out the eggie insides and paint their favorite characters and pictures on them.  Best of all, because the eggs are empty our kids can hold on to their creations without the eggs going bad.

  Ingredients:

Raw Eggs

Needles or thumb tacks

Paint and paint brushes

Glitter and Sparkles

Directions:

With the needle or thumb tack carefully poke a whole into the top and bottom of the raw egg.  Make the whole a little bigger than the original needle by chipping away at the edges of the whole until it is about the size of a ball point pen tip.  Over a bowl blow from top to bottom on the egg until all the egg’s insides have come out.  You might have to blow for a while so don’t be discouraged.  Be careful not to squeeze the egg as you are blowing into it.

 Once the egg is empty dry off the outside of the shell and paint with your favorite design.  Make it shine with glitter or sparkles. 

ENJOY!

Jell-O Eggs!

It’s spring, the time when the Easter Bunny comes to our homes and brings yummy sweets and colorful eggs.  So this month we are going to focus on funny recipes all centering on the egg.  This week we are going to make a blast from my past Jell-O eggs.  Go to the Kraft website to see more pictures or to order the mold.  http://www.kraftrecipes.com/recipes/jell-o-egg-jigglers-50280.aspx

Ingredients:

Your favorite flavor of gelatin package

Jell-O egg mold

Cooking spray

Directions:

Spray the Jell-O egg mold with cooking spray on both sides so the eggs do not stick.  Mix the gelatin according to the package.  To make an egg with two different colors fill the bottom half of the mold with one color let set and fill the top half with the second color of your choice.  Let the eggs cool in the refrigerator until solid.  Remove the eggs from the mold carefully.  Mix and match the fun colors and create a beautiful basket full of your own eggs. 

ENJOY!
