Yesterday after a delicious lunch via the Barefoot Contessa recipes and a fab Sashiko tutorial by Ellen, Joe and I headed to a toy store, CVS and a party store for eggs and to collect tiny items for the three surprise balls which I will eventually turn into giant Easter eggs for the grandchildren. I am rushing this out before I am finished since I know you may want to get started.The links above tell the story of wrapping the presents in crepe paper, changing colors and decorating at the end. The children unwrap and unwrap and unwrap!
You can click to enlarge the photo to see what I included. The most important first. David's very unfinished purple egg in the background started with a Bambi figure. The girls will get what I don't approve of, fingernail polish that glows in the dark. We got bubbles, watercolors, clay, Pugs like our granddog, Angry Bird puzzle eraser, a dollar, and naughty very soft foam egg shooters. We saw the adopt-a-bunny chocolate rabbits cleverly packaged but not sure about eating one's pet. There were a couple of books, that like the eggs and bunnies won't be wrapped.That is a start, anyway. One must plan ahead. There are plenty of treasures in one's house and pocket wo having to buy.
After being told by Blogger I had used up all my photo space, I wanted to test my reducing photo sizes to get in under the free wire and it worked. Hallelujah. One must have photos and SURPRISES!
