I never thought my almost 15 year old daughter would enjoy decorating Easter eggs, but when she puts her mind to an Easter photo shoot for my little chihuahua, she knows she has to have props. What Easter photo shoot would not be complete without colorful Easter eggs?
It was funny to me, because my daughter is just so different from a lot of the other girls her age. She still enjoys hanging out with me, loves to cook, and could care less about the latest and greatest fashion. She just enjoys life, but enjoys it in her own way. I truly love that about her.
She has lots of friends, but one really great best friend who has been through a lot with her. They have stuck together like glue and love being together.
As they decorated the Easter eggs, I thought to myself how blessed I am. My son turned 18 not too long ago, and looking back, neither of my kids have ever followed the pattern of being led by peer pressure. I think that has to do with the fact that they are homeschooled and know how to handle it. My kids have stayed out of trouble and have tried really hard to let God be their guide. It’s just a sweet blessing.
Our Easter egg decorating fun was filled with laughter and lots of colorful giggles! I have to give a shout out to Paas and Heinz Vinegar for making this day so special to Kayla and her bestie. This year PAAS has seven new decorating kits, including Volcano Eggsplosion, which uses melted crayon shavings to provide instant color, and Touch of Velvet, a kit that uses double stick adhesives and flocking powder to create fun, fuzzy shapes on your Easter creations.
How to Get Your Easter Eggs to Have Bright Colors
Kayla loves bright vibrant colors for her Easter Eggs, so we learned a tip while decorating them:
For the brightest, most vivid colors, add one tablet and three tablespoons of Heinz Distilled White Vinegar to a PAAS Color Cup or a one-cup container. Once the tablet has dissolved, add ½ cup water and stir gently. Also, to help keep hard-cooked eggs from cracking, add two tablespoons of Heinz Distilled White Vinegar per quart of water before placing the eggs in the pot. The shells will also peel off faster and easier when they’re done.
Decorate a Virtual Egg and Help Out Make a Wish Foundation
While we had tons of fun decorating the eggs for Kayla’s photo shoot, I was even more excited about the online virtual egg I can decorate at the Paas website.
Heinz Vinegar and PAAS Easter Egg Dyeing Kits have partnered to bring you the Easter Egg Decorator app, available both online via desktop or laptop computer and through the iTunes App Store. Now through March 31, when you decorate and share a virtual Easter egg with family and friends using the free app, Heinz and PAAS will donate $1, up to $25,000, to Make-A-Wish®.
So what are you waiting for? Hop on over to the Paas website and decorate and share a virtual egg with someone so you can help the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
I was sent a Heinz and Paas gift basket full of goodies in order to facilitate my review. All opinions listed are my own.
