Special Feature

For my hubby's birthday this year, we are going to go to Disney. He gets in free, and our son does too so we only have 1 ticket to buy. That is a great deal! lol Well, our little boy loves Mickey and we wanted him to have a special shirt.
I went around Etsy and found this great shop. Sew Sweet Too has some amazing items! I fell in love with her store and she is just the sweetest person! She will work with you and is so fast. I ordered the shirt and the next day she was shipping it to me because she wanted to make sure we got it in time for our trip. How awesome is that? Check out Sew Sweet Too and you will love her store!

Happy Easter Craft

Easter is upon us. So I wanted to share some neat crafts!

Try this at home! I am going to try it with my 2 year old!

Let kids make a mess with these swirled Easter egg designs. Applying and mixing the paint is the part that young crafters love best.
What you'll need:
Craft paints in pastel colors
Boiled eggs
Paper towel
Cooling rack or film canister lids
Wax paper
Tulip 3D Paint in various colors
Fine glitter, optional
How to make it:
Dry off the eggs thoroughly before starting.
Have paper towels handy in case of a spill.
Tear off a piece of wax paper about the size of a piece of paper.
Scrunch the wax paper, then open up.
Squirt two different colors of paint on the wax paper.
Scrunch the wax paper again to slightly mix colors.
Hold the wax paper in one hand.
Place an egg in the wax paper.
Use your fingertips and pick up the egg out of the paint.
Turn egg and place back on wax paper. If desired, you can just turn the egg around and around on the wax paper to coat.
Repeat until all of egg is coated.
Sprinkle with glitter, if desired.
Let dry on cooling rack or use the lid from a film canister.
Write recipient's name on the egg using the Tulip 3D Paint.
