So I was perusing Martha Stewart's website for great Easter ideas and ran across these great basics on egg dyeing and thought I would share. This week most of us will be attempting to dye Easter Eggs with the family and although it really isn't that hard, it is always great to see if others have great tips. I love Martha's drying technique. I have always just put my eggs back in the egg carton to dry and dealt with little dry spots all over my eggs, but her idea of drying them on a sheet of pins is a brilliant tip.

I am always on the hunt for super unique and fun kids arts and crafts. When I was expecting my daughter 6 years ago I was introduced to The Land of Nod. And well, I fell in love instantly with this store and wished I could buy everything they had to offer. So of course, I still get their seasonal catalogs in the mail. I just recently received the March 2014 issue and stumbled upon a page in regards to rainy day crafts. Well, I of course could not keep these great finds to myself so I thought I would highlight my absolute favorite arts and crafts that The Land of Nod offers. These fun crafts would make great gifts for Easter or any holiday, Birthday gifts, snowy or rainy day to do's and even great activities for summer (which will be here in a few short months I am happy to say). Happy shopping!
