Painted egg boxes
If you have been nominated to hold the Easter Sunday dinner this year and want to have a fun treat for the kids, why not try these painted egg box goodie bags?

Home-made painted eggs
This is a tradition that’s a great table decoration for the Easter table and fun for the kids to get involved in.
What you’ll need:
- Hard-boiled eggs
- Paper towels
- A bowl large enough to submerge an egg
- Half cup of boiled water
- 1 teaspoon of white vinegar
- Liquid food colouring (around 20 drops of a colour of your choice)
- Ensure your hard-boiled eggs are completely cooled
- Cover the surfaces with paper towels to avoid staining
- In the bowl combine the food colouring, water and vinegar
- Using your tongs dunk the egg turning occasionally to transfer the colour to both sides, leave in the liquid for around 5 minutes. For a darker colour, leave for longer
- Carefully remove the eggs with the tongs and leave to dry
- Once dried you can then hand paint patterns of your choice using neat colouring and a thin clean paint brush!
Check out some of these delicious recipes for some Easter dessert recipes and ideas for what to do with all that chocolate you’ll be receiving this year! They look mouthwatering…
Check out some of these beautiful home-made wreaths we came across on Pinterest. Some of them look far too fancy and artistic for us to get the kids involved in! If your keen to do it yourself, buy yourself a normal green wreath and then go online and order yourself some yellow chicks, small eggs, colourful flowers and stick on with super glue. Great one for the less artistic and those with less time to play with! Take a look at the below link for some wreath-spiration!
If you want to go all out and decorate further, make some Easter bunting! You can do this easily with some thick coloured card, a hole punch and some string! Cut out triangular shapes ensuring they are the same size, whole punch a hole in each triangle, thread through your string and draw, write or decorate as you choose!
