A Royal Tea Party to Celebrate the New Royal Baby!

There will soon be a new princess born, Princess Kate is pregnant with a baby girl! I can’t imagine a better reason to have a tea party. Pull out your prettiest tea cup, grab your Twinings of London tea, put on a crown and let’s do tea time like a royal! If you’re like me, tea is usually sipped in a quiet space while you unwind, but for once in a while, it’s just as relaxing to invite your fellow mom’s over for a Royal Tea Party!

Get Ready for Spring with Jelly Bean Painting Watercolors

Spring is here! Even though it doesn’t feel like spring for most of the country, the official first day of spring was on March 20th.  Do you need an easy and fun craft to get your family into the spring spirit?  Then this Jelly Bean Painting activity is just what you need!

I usually fill hundreds of plastic eggs with jelly beans for our neighborhood Easter egg hunt.  Then once it’s over, I end up with thousands of jelly beans all over the place.  Not only is there to many for us to eat, but I usually find them under the Easter basket grass or on the floor as the kids run back in the house.  This Jelly Bean Painting craft is the perfect way to have fun while getting rid of all the extra candy from Easter!

Plus I have a cute butterfly printable you can print out and paint, perfect spring vibes!

How to Make Unicorn Easter Eggs

Unicorn Easter Eggs

Who doesn’t love unicorns? They are all the rage right now, I can’t enter a store without seeing something unicorn themed that “I need” to buy for my daughter (really for me).  So Unicorn Easter Eggs are obviously a must, right?

 There is nothing I enjoy more than stumbling upon a craft involving my favorite mystical creature!  With Easter right around the corner, these Unicorn Easter Eggs will make a fabulous addition to those Easter Baskets!

It is also the perfect Easter egg project for messy little ones since this tutorial includes zero dye!
That’s right, keep those tabletops nice and dry while your kids have a blast making Unicorn Easter Eggs.

Just boil those eggs and have your kids glue away. It doesn’t get easier than that!

PS ~ Like the “Egg Stands”? Plastic shot glasses filled with Easter grass. You’re welcome.

Unicorn Easter Eggs

What you’ll need:
Eggs
A Sheet of Gold Paper (You can always print to avoid the craft store!)
A Sheet of Pink Paper
Black Sharpie
Glue
Paper Flowers 

Unicorn Easter Eggs

First, boil your eggs,  Once your eggs are boiled let them cool for awhile. You don’t want anyone burning their hands on a hot egg!

Next, cut your sheet of gold paper into rectangles.
Take your gold paper rectangles and wrap really tight to create a unicorn horn.

Unicorn Easter Eggs

When you get your gold paper rectangle to resemble a unicorn horn, glue the edge together with your glue. Trim your unicorn horn to the desired height.  Remember that you’ll want your unicorn horn to be slightly taller than you would think because the paper flowers will cover some of the horn, and of course, you want that horn visible.

Take your pink paper and cut out pink circles for cheeks! If you have a hole punch, you can always use that instead of scissors to make those perfect circles go a lot faster.

Once your unicorn horns have dried, glue your horn on the top of the egg with your glue.

Next glue your paper flowers onto the egg.

After your unicorn horn and flowers have dried, draw your unicorn eyes and eyelashes on your eggs. I suggest practicing on a blank piece of paper to perfect your technique before drawing on the actual Unicorn Easter Egg since Sharpies are permanent. You only get one shot and this step really pulls your unicorn together!

After you draw those fabulous eyes, it’s time to glue on those pink circle cheeks!

Tad-a! You now have Unicorn Easter eggs! These are definitely the most glamorous Easter Eggs that the Easter Bunny will see!

Have a great Easter.
