Easter Egg decorating is a holiday tradition for many families. It’s no secret, though, that dyeing eggs can result in a serious mess. It’s a close second to carving pumpkins when it comes to the messiest of holiday crafts! By replacing the dye with other materials such as paints, colored pencils, markers, and crafting (washi) tape, your family can create spectacular Easter eggs with less stress.

My favorite holiday is coming up, and I cannot wait!! I absolutely love Halloween because it’s a time of year when you can be as creative as you want. These midnight DIY trick or treat bags are easy to make and fun to decorate for kids of any age. I call them “midnight” because they require creating art on a black as night background. Or if you’re like me, you might find yourself crafting at the stroke of midnight to finish a project!
I know its hard to believe, but Valentine’s Day is coming up! I love to do something small but special for our kids every year to let them know we love them, but they can be really funny when it comes to treats. Our son has a huge sweet tooth, but our daughter doesn’t like things that are too sweet. It makes for a ton of fun when they have to pick a dessert to split. (NOT!) But a few years ago I started making them Italian Sodas at home and they both LOVE them. Our daughter is a big fan of sparkling water and I think the club soda helps tone down the sweetness just enough for her. Plus I like that I can control the sugar amount for each of them — I always put less sweet syrup in her glass.
Coloring is tons of fun, and it’s no wonder adult coloring is hot right now. Coloring books allow us to be interactive in someone elses art while being creative ourselves. Many people enjoy working in one coloring medium such as colored pencil or wax crayon, but we’ve made some pretty exciting discoveries mixed media coloring that we’d like to share.
