Cath Kidston Inspired Easter Eggs

Hi all,

We have been crafting with our children a couple of hours ago and me and my daughter made this. 

Hola a todos !

Esta tarde hemos hecho manualidades con los peques y he hecho esto con mi hija.

The inspiration has come from this gorgeous blog, she makes such lovely things. . . 

La inspiración ha venido de este precioso blog, ella hace cosas preciosas . . .

Of course I don't have her patience and I have two small kids and my daughter was very happy to help me paint the egg white, dry it with a hairdryer, etc. . . 

Por supuesto yo no tengo la paciencia que tiene ella y ademas tengo 2 niños pequeños y mi hija estaba muy contenta de ayudarme a pintar el huevo blando y secarlo con un secador de pelo. . .

We only did one as a sample as again it takes a lot of time (which I don't have at the moment) to make the wholes in the eggs without breaking them, blow the eggs (yuuk !) and wash them. 

Solo hemos hecho uno como ejemplo, por la misma razón. Lleva muuuucho tiempo hacer los agujeritos en los huevos sin romperlos, soplar en los huevos para vaciarlos (que asco !!) y lavarlos.

I prepared 2, one for my daughter and one for my son. My son is two and there was more paint in his face and hands than on the egg itself. Paint all over the kitchen table, everywhere, but it was all worth it. 

He preparado 2, uno para mi hija y otro para mi hijo. Mi hijo tiene 2 añitos y había mas pintura en su cara y manos que en el huevo. Pintura por toda la mesa de la cocina, por todos los sitios, pero ha merecido la pena.

I used these Mala paints from Ikea as they are child friendly and so of course the result was not as good as in the inspirational blog. . . 

He usado pintura Mala de Ikea ya que es para niños y claro el resultado no es tan bueno como el del blog en el que me inspirado . . .

I hope you like it and give it a try . . . I'm proof that it can be done, I'm the clumsiest person when it comes to painting, and it does look like a CK rose, well, it does to me. And if it does not, just close your eyes a little bit . . . now you can see the rose !

Espero que os animeis a intentarlo . . .yo soy prueba de que se puede hacer, soy la persona mas torpe en lo que se refiere a pintura, pero si que me ha salido como una rosa de Cath Kidston, bueno a mi me lo parece. Y si no la ves, entrecierra los ojos un poquito, ahora . . . si, la ves ?

Have a lovely weekend !! 

Que tengáis un buen fin de semana !!
