Painting Easter Eggs : Feature by Mama Pea Pod


I just recently found Jane’s blog, Mama Pea Pod, through our weekly party It’s Playtime.
Jane has two small girls so her crafts and playing seem like a breath of fresh air to me.
Her Princess Pea just recently had a Rainbow Birthday Party that looks like it was a lot of fun!
But, what caught my eye were these Painted Easter Eggs
and what other fun that ended up being had with them.
Here’s Mama Pea Pod, Jane:

We got out the paints, the plastic tablecloth, the eggs, some brushes, and a couple of damp rags.
Princess Pea used brushes and IKEA paint to paint hers.
She made spots, splotches, lines, and a handprint.
She learned a bit of color-mixing along the way. 
Then she painted Grandma.
Sweet Pea used the fingerpaints. 
She squashed the paint up in her hands, 
then grabbed the eggs, smearing the paint over them in the process. 
They were slippery and hard to hold on to, 
which resulted in lots of paint smearing as she kept fumbling and trying to catch them.
