AT-HOME FUN >>
Here’s an egg-citing idea!
First things first, lay your table with a cloth or covering of your choice before reaching for the arts and crafts cabinet.
Grab whatever it is you’ve got at home: pens, pencils, glitter, glue, feathers, sequins, paint – you name it. Set the table, hard boil the eggs – or go for polystyrene if you’d prefer – and craft the ultimate Easter creation.
