Paper Egg Diorama and new PJ's

I wanted to find an Easter egg project for the kids since we don't do the traditional Easter egg dyeing. Honestly I think that dyed eggs look so pretty, but to a vegan they are just so wrong. So wrong! I haven't bought or used eggs in almost 7 years now, and I don't think I ever will again. Its just creepy to me, and there isn't a thing I miss about eggs. But I still want my kids to have some holiday traditions, something they can look forward to doing each year.

I like the Family Fun website, and I usually find some great craft projects for the kids, so every holiday I check it out. I found these awesome Paper Egg Diorama's!

Even the boys got involved in this project, although they haven't finished their eggs yet. They spent one night playing Wii while Faye and I worked on our eggs, so we finished a day ahead of them. I have to say it was one of the most fun projects I've made in awhile. Its probably not something you'd want to do with really young kids, as it requires a little bit of skill and quite a lot of time.

Here's Faye working on her egg earlier this week. Notice her new pj's I made! They are Kimono style pj's, a pattern from Oliver and S. They have ridiculously cute patterns for kids, and I'd heard so many good things about this particular pattern I had to get it.

It took me awhile to finish Drew's pajamas as we had a busy couple of weeks, but finally his are finished! I made size 6 and they are a little big, but he'll grow into them.

Drew calls them his ninja pjs. How cute are they?!
