Seriously, how cute are these?
We decided to dye eggs a little early this year, so we could actually enjoy them before Easter.
Isaiah LOVES Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2. Actually, it’s “Be-Spip-Able Me” according to him. His voice melts me these days…
Anyway, he flipped when I made these for him. And they couldn’t have been easier.
All you need is eggs, dye (blue, yellow, and purple), a Sharpie, a white paint pen, and a cotton ball.
For the regular minions: dye one half at a time (bottom blue, top yellow) making sure each half is dry before starting the other. Remember, it doesn’t have to be perfect. The point here is to have fun creating.
For the crazy minions: dye both the egg and cotton ball purple. (Note: you may want to dye the cotton ball the night before, since it will take quite a while to air dry.)
Once all the eggs are completely dry, make the eyes with the white paint pen. Then use the Sharpie to finish the eyes, goggles and mouth. And of course…crazy hair. (Just hot glue the cotton ball for the crazy minion)
I think we made Kevin. And Bob. At least, that’s what Isaiah is calling them. Of course, then he wanted Gru. And Lucy. And El Macho…
A Mother’s work is never done.
“Happy” Easter! ;)
