I love the spirit of Easter in Deutschland. The easter bunnies, colored eggs, easter tree(will show you mine in the next post). Feels a bit like Christmas. While you do get painted easter eggs in the markets, it is more fun to paint them at home. With the fun, there is a whole lot of mess to clear up, not to forget the broken eggs in the process!!!!
Over the weekend, I picked up paints which come as a ready kit exclusively for painting eggs. Available at any supermarket or hobby store, they come with colors, plastic gloves and foil for the shine. Instructions were in English too, so it wasn't a problem at all to get going. The children in their eagerness to paint, kept breaking the shells. Luckily the eggs need to be boiled, hence the damage was less.
Doesn't it make for a pretty centre piece for the coffee table? Spring and Easter, I like the combination of both. Pretty flowers and easter eggs!!!
