Crochet Easter egg

So when I told you that me and my mom we like to try something new every Easter I meant it 🙂 . This year my mom decided to make a crochet Easter egg, and I must admit that all I did was taking pictures.. I still don’t know how to knit but as it’s mentioned I am a lazy mom, right ? So here is how she did it :

Honestly when she started I was sure it will take her ages :

But after not more than 10 minutes she was already trying it on:

And then she was knitting with the egg inside her crochet cozy:

And she finished with a little bow. Next year it’s me doing another colour 🙂 . Would any of you try it? I’m curious 🙂 .

Paper scraps Easter eggs

Paper scraps Easter eggs

I love decorating Easter eggs, it’s a tradition that we have with my mom to always try something different. Some years we paint them, others we try using all natural ingredients like beets and onion to dye them, and sometimes we try glueing seeds or paper scraps. This year we opted for pastel paper coated eggs, so pretty and easy enough to include a child to help :).

First we ripped the paper in to little peaces:

And then we glued them on the eggs :

And we were developing fine motor skills at the same time !

And this is how they turned up :

And I think that they make for a lovely table decoration :):
