I did manage, finally, to find a little project that Zoe actually stayed interested and involved in enough to see through from beginning to end! I got the idea from The Chocolate Muffin Tree for these tie dyed coffee filter Easter eggs and it was so fun and simple. I cut out the egg shapes the night before so the project wouldn't be about cutting the filters into teeny tiny pieces, but everything else she did with me. Zoe gave a couple of them (my favorites) away, but we were left with a bunch to hang in our window. We had colored water in our spray bottles left over from spraying snow this winter and although it added a tinge of color, wasn't worth mixing it up just for this project. Zoe tested it out by spraying a couple without coloring first with the markers. I can't wait to make more--so easy!
