The kids eggs look almost too good to eat this year!
I love that as the kids get older, the experimenting with the egg decorating can reach new heights! This year we traded in the dye cups and wax crayons for whipped cream and an embossing gun – OOooOOOOh!
Does your family have a golden egg that is worth a special treat? Somehow along the years this went from a small treat to being worth money – I don’t know how that happened, those kids are pretty sneaky.
For this golden egg I embossed nearly the entire egg, leaving small patches showing through. I like the randomness of the gold and the embossing gives it some extra strength. I did this by rolling the egg all over the embossing ink pad, rolling the egg again in the embossing powder and then using the gun on one ‘side’ of the egg at a time. Caution: the eggs do get hot from the gun! This Easter Egg Embossing technique uses stamps for adorable patterns.
And the kids have found their new favorite way of decorating! I had found a few tutorials on Shaving Cream Easter Egg Decorating and after skimming Pinterest I saw that it could be done with whipped cream as well. I don’t know, something about the shaving cream on a potential food product grossed me out. So we took tips from this option of Whipped Cream Easter Egg Decorating by whipping up some heavy cream and tossing in some dye. Simple as that really!
Some tips from the kids:
-Wear gloves. Or be prepared when the daughter freaks out that its ruined her manicure.
-Don’t mix too many colors. Or as the boy said, you’ll get poo colored eggs.
-It can get messy so be near a sink to wash hands and face. This tip is from the Mom of kids who just wanted to eat the whipped cream.
What do you think? Do you like the outcome?
I hope your family has a blessed day together and I would love to see some of your fun egg-ventures!
