Decorate Easter Eggs – Minions, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, & The Hard Hat Belles

Decorating Easter Eggs With Character

Hi Y’all,

Come on in and see what we’ve been up to with Easter Egg decorating.  We have all the details y’all need below. So grab your cup-o-stuff and a seat and we’ll get started.

Tea for two

I have always loved decorating Easter Eggs. When my kids were very little I got to shine with my creativity because they had very little interest in decorating other than to color the eggs.  They loved to dunk the eggs in those lovely rainbow colors (later they moved on to stickers and crayons).  I would have to limit their dunks per egg as they felt the more colors the egg was dunked into the better -you know where you end up with a greenish brown yuck color.  We usually ended up with a lot of those anyway.

As time moved on they ended up taking over the Easter egg decorating as their own creativity had taken over.  Where I once reigned I was now regulated to an observer position and if I was fortunate they would ask my opinion once in a while (which drizzled to zilch eventually).  Then I was regulated to the “ooh” and “ahh” position.

To Decorate or Not To DecorateMinions and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Now that all my kids are grown and busy with their own lives I have been sitting here thinking about “should I” or “shouldn’t I” decorate Easter eggs this year?  Seriously, it’s not a third world problem and probably not a one world problem; but hey – it’s my little world.  I really hadn’t given it much thought until Wiebke and I filmed the video Minion and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Character Easter Eggs (Whew! Pretty long title – say that fast ten times).  Then the “decorate Easter eggs” bug hit me.  I think it is more the memories that are generated when my kids where younger than anything else.  On the other hand, I do like to craft and create and as an extra bonus – I like boiled eggs.

I started thinking about all the different designs on Google, Pinterest, and some magazine websites I looked through (like Real Simple). The decorate some Easter eggs bug is there, but do I have enough time to do it myself.  I have decided that a day or two before Easter I will see if my super busy schedule allows me enough time.  That way I have taken the pressure off and have given myself permission either way.

Egg Safety

In our video and the directions below we used some empty plastic eggs I had laying around my house.  These eggs will last FOREVER!  But if you do like I do and boil “real” eggs to decorate; you will want to know if your raw eggs are fresh and still safe to eat.  Check out this pin  we pinned to our Yummy and Easy Recipe board on Pinterest to find out.
