Chalkboard Easter Eggs

…You can’t eat them, but they sure are cute!  Make these tonight, and they’ll be ready to pass out at work tomorrow to all the Good Eggs you know.

1.  Set an egg out for 30 minutes to bring it to room temperature.  Go about your usual routine, forget about the egg, come back in two hours to find the egg broken on the bathroom floor.   Scold 4-year-old.   Start over. :)

2.  Pat the egg dry and give it two coats of chalkboard paint.  I used Folkart, about 4.95 at Wal-Mart.Chalkboard-easter-egg-supplies

3.  Dry your egg overnight.  (This is why you’re doing this tonight instead of 6 a.m. tomorrow morning, like you really want too.  And no, a hairdryer doesn’t work quite as well.  Trust me.)

4. In the morning, color all over your egg to your heart’s content, put it on a fluffy nest of Easter grass in a cute, tiny tin bucket, .99 at Wal-Mart, and you’re ready to go.

You are so Cute, Smart and Organized!
