Great Big Sparkly Egg

I saw this wonderful craft at The Imagination Tree blog and knew I had to do it with Lily.
You can also see it here at The Chocolate Muffin Tree blog.
Aren't those awesome blog names?
They both have great tutorials on this project.

We started out ripping tissue paper.
Which is not always as easy as it looks.

Then we dipped the tissue into glue mixed with a little bit of water.
And placed it onto a big egg shaped balloon.

Lily really liked this project.
I'm so glad she likes to do crafts.

After the whole balloon was covered, I painted the rest of the glue mixture with some pink glitter mixed in all over the balloon.
It took several days to dry but it was well worth it.

We hung our big sparkly egg in the kitchen window.
The pictures really don't do it justice.
We love our sparkly Easter egg!

And I've got to say, I am soooooo HAPPY Spring is here.
This So Cal girl doesn't have much love for the MO winter.

But the Spring here is glorious!

And so are these two little munchkins!
