Chalkboard EggsNew Ways to Color Easter Eggs

Spring is here, and with Easter about two weeks away – Sunday April 5 – now is the time to plan when your family is going to color eggs this holiday season.

South Shore Mamas, a popular parenting blog on the South Shore, has a recent post with lots of fun, new ways to color eggs. My favorite is the chalk board paint style.  You can buy chalk board paint at your local craft or hardware store.  Obviously, these eggs are NOT edible, but they are cute looking! Other fun ideas that South Shore Mamas includes are:

  •  Washi Tape.  Washi tape is a great creative supply to have in your craft bin.  Staples and cute tape, an online store, have a hugeWashi Tape selection of colorful washi tape.  It’s not cheap – in fact several rolls make a great birthday gift for kids who are into crafting – but worth the few extra dollars for  beautiful designs and colors.

  • Tattoos!  Every mom has tattoos leftover from birthday party goodie bags.  Gather them up and use them to decorate eggs this year.  Or, buy a certain style that you like – hearts, rainbows, bunnies, etc.  Go to South Shore Mamas for the complete tutorial on coloring Easter Eggs.

We’ve talked about the MommaJam kitchen brewing up natural dyes for Easter Eggs a few years ago…. it was a true science experiment!  While it was fun and healthy, we found natural dyes don’t have the same vibrant punch as the Paas tablets.  If you want bright colors, go for the store bought kits.

Kid-Friendly Passover Dinners 

Passover starts the evening of April 3.  Time for menu planning.  It’s hard for little kids to “do without” for a week, so we’re sharing PopSugar’s ideas for kid-friendly dinners during Passover.  My favorite idea is the brisket taco with a matzo soft taco shells – matzo meal replaces the corn mesa.

Also, try making matzo at home with kids with this recipe from Kitchn, a terrific website for anyone who likes to cook.  This easy recipe also demonstrates how bread doesn’t rise and provides a history lesson for kids of all religious backgrounds.
