Give the kids a project this weekend that will be fun and help decorate your home.
Ashley Morken with Unglued shared what inspires her. Adding things like fresh flowers and moss can be a great way to decorate not only for Easter but also for Spring.
Here's more ways to decorate as seen on the Valley Today:
Cool Whip Egg:
Put cool whip on a plate
Drop colors of food dye on the cool whip
Swirl colors together using a toothpick
Roll egg using a spoon to cover the egg
Put in wax paper and leave in fridge overnight
Next day carefully wipe off egg and rinse under water
Bath Bomb Egg:
Ingredients (Will make 6 large bath bombs)
8 oz. Baking soda
4 oz. Epsom salt
4 oz. Cornstarch
4 oz. Citric acid
3 teaspoons water
2 teaspoons essential oil or fragrance oil for soaps, etc.
2-5 drops food coloring
Larger plastic Easter eggs or silicone/plastic mold
Confetti sprinkles (optional)
In a large bowl, combine the Epsom salt, cornstarch, baking soda and citric acid. Stir using a whisk
In a separate small bowl, mix together your wet ingredients
Pour your wet ingredients into the bowl with your dry ingredients and whisk together
Use your fingers to ball up a bit of the mixture to see if it is starting to stick together a bit. If not, you can add a little more water. But add slowly, you don't want the mixture too wet.
Pack the powder into both sides of the plastic egg, and make sure there aren’t any air pockets
Let egg sit for 15 minutes, then it's ready
Wait one day to use in bath
No-Bake Cheesecake Chocolate Eggs:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
8 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup powered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
Hallow chocolate eggs
Open hallow eggs with a knife by dipping it in hot water so it can smoothly cut the chocolate.
Whip heavy cream to stiff peaks.
Beat cream cheese with powered sugar
Fold cream cheese mixture into whip cream
Put mixture, caramel and melting chocolate into separate piping bags.
Fill eggs with desired filling.
Use melted chocolate to attach the egg back together.
