easter egg art

We take our egg dyeing seriously at the Schultz house. We break out our crafting (snowman)table cloth, sharpies, stickers, rubber bands and mini paint rollers. We are not so much Martha Stewart as we are her younger, awkward step sister.
I always wish that I had boiled more eggs when we are done. We have that much fun.
WOW, I look pretty frazzled in this picture. I am pretty sure I look like this 80% of the time.
And I am pretty sure Harper is Nakey. He has not been liking clothes so much lately.

I have no idea why I had my kids bath before we dyed eggs. Not my best idea.

I actually don't love Easter egg dying time. I will do anything to get out of it. I don't know why. People always complain about the mess, but still do it. I just don't do it. I totally love the end result though! haha. But they usually always do it with someone else. This year, Brittany helped! I love your guys' eggs, and I am gonna tell the girls about the rubber band idea. Love it. I also love that Harper is naked most of the time cuz Spencer is just the same and I thought he was odd. He wants nothing to do with clothes or shoes. Happy Easter! Glad to see you guys had fun. :)

It's a tradition to have the kids just have a bath and have wet hair for photos when dying Easter eggs. My daughters did and now my grandchildren have wet hair and in their jammies. Doesn't everyone. I love your blog, I adore Davy!

Hey - I wouldn't worry about the bath first flub. I had the BRILLIANT idea of dying Easter eggs in the morning when we were going to get professional pictures done that same afternoon. Blue fingers looked GREAT with their blue outfits.

Though I will say that shaving cream (yes, shaving cream!) does wonders to get most of the dye off skin. Google knows everything.

I love how into it everyone looks! We skipped it this year, but my eldest is <3, so IDK how much he really would have gotten out of it anyway. At least that's what I'm telling myself. :)

I was wondering about the hair... now I know... lol!

What a fun night! Now I see why you cancelled going to the movies to dye easter eggs...it isn't your normal 10 minute dye job like it is at our house, it is an event.

I love egg dying, but we were more than lack-luster this year.. We tried the glitter eggs and I would have been better off making my own glitter eggs.

For the record.. you are more like Martha's Hip younger sister.. you have to get a little messy during a creative storm.

Looks like y'all have such a great time! I can't wait until my little lamb is big enough to do these kinds of activities. :)

Ruth, I just have to tell you that you are the only blog that I have saved on my favorites and that I follow regularly. I truly feel (more like predict) you writing a book one day. You style of writing is so fantastic and hilarious. I will be sure to go to your first book signing someday! Oh, and the eggs look simply amazing!!
