It was fun, and I was delighted with some of the designs I found. Sharing them would be fun, but I'm guessing some people don't like their photos shared, even if you cite the source. So if you want to see my top three faves, I'll give the links.
My favorite was this Faux Gilded egg from Just Paint It. I thought it had a great travel or map feel to it that I really liked!
My second favorite was the Glow in the Dark Easter Egg I found from Growing a Jeweled Rose. It is not a wild guess that the kids would love these, especially at nighttime.
And last but not least, I really liked these simple Twine Tied Eggs from Smart School House! They look very easy to do and the twine adds just the right touch of festive to the project, without requiring a lot of time.
Of course there were a million other eggs I liked. Star Wars characters, smiley faces, speckled robin's eggs, and so on and so forth.
In the end, because we'd been gone all weekend and didn't have a lot of time, we opted to just dye them with Vinegar and a color tablet (laugh if you want to, I did...all those elaborate plans and we did none of them, lol). The dye tablets were simple, effective, and we thought it was fun. But next year... maybe we'll be ready to move on to something more elaborate.

Are you doing eggs this year? If so, are they done yet? Do you get fancy, or keep it simple?
