I have to say that I’m not the craftiest of mummies but thankfully, I can’t say the same for my children who put me to shame with their creativity! So in all honesty, when the note came home with my five year old to say that we had to decorate eggs for the annual Easter competition, I may have groaned just a little. I think it goes back to my own childhood trauma of being laughed at for my poor entry one year of a b-egg-ar b-egg-ing for money when I was about seven. Don’t ask. It’s too traumatic to talk about but to cut a long story short, my entry was the laughing stock of the whole school because it was that bad!
So, after much pondering, and consulting of Twitter, my dearest Other Half came up with the idea of doing Royal Wedding eggs! Fab idea but of course my first instinct was like, what?! Howwww?!
But we did have a go. And we had great fun. Obviously, my five year old was the real brains of the operation, I did try to help but it soon became apparent that I was more of a hindrance and left her to it.
And here it is!
As you can see, Wills had quite the stag do to end up with a whopping black eye.
And Kate has maybe gone a little OTT with the make-up but gets frugal brownie (or should that be greenie?) points for her lovely dress made of *cough* Andrex.
She was as proud as punch taking it into school and even though I do say so myself – she was ROBBED of the first prize! How did she not win?! But of course it’s the taking part that counts blah blah blah.. As my five year old told me. Not that I’m a competitive mummy of course. And I’m not even slightly biased *cough*
Happy Easter everyone 🙂
