Emoji Easter eggs

Every year, I try out a new idea for Easter eggs, ๐Ÿ˜„ and I came across this one on Pinterest, (I think) and I couldn’t resist! My daughter Sam, is all over any excuse to use emojis… ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ˜‡ look, I even have them installed on my iPad keyboard.

Here is the original post….Link to Egg tutorial

Sam had a friend over, so when I showed them the above picture,they instantly jumped at the idea. ๐Ÿ˜›

So, we started with some paper, I had them look online to find some Emojis, and sketch out a few ideas.

Luckily, every year starting in February, I start saving eggs. Instead of cracking them, Using a skewer, I poke a hole in the top and bottom, and blow out the yolks, ๐Ÿ˜ฎ so i had a few eggs on hand. I figure if we are going to go to the trouble of decorating the eggs,we might as well keep them. 

The original post said to pain the eggs with acrylic paint, ๐Ÿ˜ด  but we decided to simplify the idea a little, and we used food colouring to colour the eggs. The simplest way I have seen to dye eggs is to pop them into a sandwich bag, and add a few drops of food colouring, and rub around. It worked pretty well, much less mess than paint, I am sure!  ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

We had to let the eggs dry for a little bit until the food colouring was dry. ๐Ÿ˜ดThen, the girls sketched their designs in pencil and traced over them in Sharpie markers…man, what can’t you do with sharpies? ๐Ÿ‘

Anyways, here are the end results….really cute! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜Š๏ปฟ๏ปฟ๏ปฟ

I almost forgot to mention that they are double sided! We drew two different faces on each egg. The girls just picked the side they liked the best for the photos. ๐Ÿ˜‰
