    Those are cute. I love the idea for homemade Peeps (I love peeps) now I can make my own. The easter pails are cute. May have to do that with my sons preschool class. The peeps are a good idea for girl scouts to make (may have to do that). Thank you for the ideas.

    I just looked at the directions for the easter pails and you can buy sticky foam paper in packets at Joanns (that is were I shop). They work great you do not need the glue for the pail part.

    Stuff like this makes me wish I would had at least one little girl. I love my kids but they are all boys three to be exact.

    I am looking for some great patterns for Spring/Easter for little boys.

    I used to make these all the time---my mom calls them Ukranian eggs but I don't know if that's what they're really called....


    Take a regular raw egg, use a straight pin and poke a hole at the top and bottom, then blow the yolk/white out (over a sink, or into a container if you want to actually use the egg for food, LOL) so you just have the intact shell. Then run water through it to clean it out. Pat dry carefully with paper towel, and blow through the inside to get out excess water.

    Use regular water-based craft paint (or we used puffy paint too sometimes) to create your design. You can use stencils, or hot glue little things on it.

    When finished and dried, hot glue a ribbon to the top so you have something to hang it from. If you don't want to use hot glue, you can also very carefully thread ribbon from the bottom hole to the top and just tie a knot in the bottom.

    I'll make a couple and post a picture. =)

    Here's a link on how to make Cascarones - (Mexican confetti eggs) using your blown out eggs. She put goodies in hers instead of confetti.   I can't copy a photo but they are really cute.

    I was browsing the web and came across this. It could be used for Easter or babyshower.

      I make the sugar panoramic eggs. I give them to my son's teachers each year.  I make large and small ones.
