It’s Easter Egg Week at AJR!! A whole week of really fun, simple, colorful and unique ways to take your eggs to the next level this year and we’re kicking it off today with these happiest-ever balloon eggs! Because sharing a birthday with a holiday can be a real bummer.
We are really lucky that our birthday doesn’t fall around any other celebrated times so the focus can always just be 100% on us :D but some people aren’t so lucky. Our brother for instance has had Easter fall on his birthday (the very last day of March) a few times so this year I thought, “we need a way to incorporate Easter-time birthdays into our family celebration!” And so balloon easter eggs were born.
I know most people who share their birthdays either just accept it or are happy with a simple cake but I also know they’d feel a teeny bit better seeing some birthday fun meeting traditional Easter food, wouldn’t you?! And even if you aren’t celebrating a birthday in conjunction with your Easter, these eggs are so stinking cute and so easy, make em anyway! Just for funsies!
- Hard boiled eggs //
- Egg dyeing materials //
- Balloons (I used water balloons and a hand pump) //
- Hot glue and gun //
1. Hard boil and dye your eggs
2. Blow up some matching balloons. I used water balloons and a hand pump and they were the perfect size for this but regular balloons would work too.
3. Cut the bottom of the balloon off, above the knot.
That’s it! I mean really if you’re already coloring eggs anyway you might as well add a balloon knot to the bottom for some extra cheer don’t you think!?
