This year for Easter we are going to make things a little more fun and special than we have in the past at our house. I thought it would be fun to make Easter dinner more like a mini-party. These egg straws will be fun for the kids (and adults) to enjoy. You could even make them plain and let the kids decorate their own! They are super easy to make and the best thing about them is they are totally customizable. Do whatever you want with them! Want to make some of your own? Of course you do. Here's how.
I found some paper mache eggs at the craft store for next to nothing and just drilled a hole in the top and the bottom. You will want to pick a drill bit that is barely bigger than your straw so it will fit snuggly. Also, when you drill, start out very slowly so you get a nice clean hole.
Next, paint! I went with white, but you could do any color combo you want! Some nice pastels perhaps? So very eastery.
I thought it would be cute and fun for the kids to have their names on them. This is also a great way of keeping track of your drink! I used a paint marker to ensure the names were clear. Plus, paint pens are so easy to use. Next I decorated the eggs with dots and dashes. Again, you can do whatever you want! Keep them plain, go for stripes, gold leaf them, you get the idea. And that's it! You are ready to party Easter style.
