Yesterday afternoon as I was mindlessly perusing FaceBook I came upon a post from a blogger, Amy Lemons, from ‘somewhere’, who was showing what two children were doing to create a virtual Easter Egg Hunt. Real Easter Egg hunts won’t be happening safely country-wide this year and this was a little alternative that she came up with. She’s calling it the Great 2020 Easter Egg Hunt. You can find Amy’s post here.
Parents can print the egg templates or children can create their own. All of the directions needed are in the PDF, so that anyone can easily follow it! Click this link to grab your own templates.
I printed the four egg templates off this morning (they each just about fill an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of paper). Then I decorated them using my Stampin’ Up! supplies, both current and retired. What a fun break from just self isolating and being tired of wandering around looking for something positive and creative and just plain fun to do. (Yes, I know I have a garage full of boxes to empty but……it’s still too cold outside to do that!)
Here are the eggs that will be going up in our windows, plus a few of the steps used in decorating them:
The egg on the left was colored using an Aqua Painter and these classic inks: Flirty Flamingo, Pretty Pumpkin, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Bermuda Bay and Gorgeous Grape.
“Rainbow” Classic Stampin’ Pads used:
The third egg (above) used the retired Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper, pieced to fit the zig zags. It’s also shown below.
For my final egg, with no lines to guide or distract me, I decided to weave 3/4″ strips of Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper, also retired. Below are the wandering steps I took:
Here is one of the finished eggs, sitting in the corner of the guest bedroom window in front of Paddington Bear. It’s very hard to photograph through a screen!
Do you think the egg hunters will be able to see these eggs? Decorating them was a ton of fun and it was a great way to use free time wisely and creatively.
