Dying and marbling easter eggs with gold nail polish. It’s really easy but not the tidiest craft project as you’ll see from the state of my hands by the end. But the results are really pretty. I’ve also shown you how to blow eggs, so if you’ve ever wondered whether it’s worth blowing an egg before you decorate it, you’ll see it’s quite easy.
When it’s freezing out side, or raining, or dark at 4pm, I often find myself with a genuine dislike for the outdoors and two hyperactive children. This is when I call in the power of a rebrand. It works on adults all the time – show them a sunny Peckham carpark and tell them it’s a ‘beer garden’, it will be full of happy hipsters before you can say ‘artisanal cider’ – I use the same techinique on my kids.
Aah, ’tis the season to eat, drink, be merry and grab a cheeky kebab before you pretend to be less pissed while you pay the babysitter. Just me? I know I’m not alone.
Well, while you’re visiting your friendly neighbourhood junk food supplier, why not ask them for a bunch of their kebab bags so you can make a dazzling paper star?
