Easter Decorations

The boys and I made some 3D eggs this weekend to decorate for Easter. I had a vision to make a banner that looked something like this. And although Isaac is usually willing to play along with whatever I’ve got up my sleeve, Andrew’s been more opinionated lately. We started cutting out eggs and assembling them into eggs that were flat on one side…when he discovered that if you put two of those together…it’s a WHOLE EGG! Which, as you may already know, is way better than half an egg.

Two years ago I would have acknowledged his discovery, but continued to have the boys complete the craft as planned. But lately I’ve been feeling a little more willing to make some crafting compromises. And so, we took his discovery and ran with it.

So, instead of a banner, we have little 3D paper eggs hanging in our windows.

And they look pretty good. :)

About robyn

I stopped teaching Kindergarten in 2005 to become the mom of two crazy boys here in Brooklyn. At first I thought being a stay at home mom meant that I needed to pour all my time and energy directly into my sons, but I realized somewhere along the way that being a rockstar mom meant not only taking good care of my boys, but also taking good care of myself. And taking good care of myself means pursuing something creative...just about everyday. I started Made In Brooklyn to motivate myself in my creative goals as well as share my work with others and perhaps inspire them in their own creative journeys.
