Eco Crafts: Make Neon Easter Eggs

kraft&mint DIY Neon Easter Eggs

I love involving my kids in the projects and crafts I design. The older they get, the better direction they take and crafting is an enjoyable time. For this project I used these amazing non toxic, eco-friendly highlighter pencils. It gives me peace of mind knowing my children’s little hands are not getting chemicals all over them. These awesome color pencils came from an online shop in Portland, Or, called “Stubby Pencil Studio”. I was very fortunate to get my hands on a few of their products and introduce them to you! Stubby Pencil Studio has also put together an Easter “suitcase” giveaway for one of “YOU” dear readers! Please take a look below for more details and photos!

My daughter immediately gravitated to the neon yellow highlighter and started coloring her egg (made out of paper mache). The pencils are thicker than traditional pencils and provide a good grip for her little hands.

The suitcase is full of goodies, art supplies and craft materials (a value of $50). Their crayons are made from soy and beeswax (not petroleum), and pencils are made from sustainably harvested wood and recycled newspapers (not vibrant forests). To win, simply share a favorite Easter memory from your childhood in the comments area below. The staff at Stubby Pencil Studio will choose their favorite comment and ship out the suitcase directly to you!

Thank you again for visiting and reading kraft&mint and thank you Stubby Pencil for providing such great craft supplies and materials for my first giveaway! See, this is what I LOVE about blogging! I get to meet other creative and wonderful people to partner with ;) Please read below a snippet from the owner at Stubby Pencil Studio:

“I started this arts and crafts supply store to bring the safest, highest quality art materials to other families. You see, when my twins were toddlers, I wanted them to enjoy arts and crafts, but I did not want them exposed to chemicals. I tried to buy toxic-free, quality art supplies, and I really had to search. Once I found products I was confident enough to give my own kids, I realized other moms would want these safe products for their kids, too.
At Stubby Pencil Studio, we use all products before we decide to offer them in our store. My kids put each item to the test for durability and ease of use – if they love it, we think your kids will too. From our family to yours, we want kids to have the opportunity to enjoy art and be creative without the worry. High quality products, which are responsibly made, are not only healthier for children; they’re also less wasteful and help to prevent damage from harmful chemicals. We believe the choices we make matter, and we care about the impact to our customers, our communities, and our environment.”

    My favorite Easter memory is waking up every Easter morning to find an Easter basket for me and my sisters,putting on our Easter dresses and taking pictures, going to church, then coming home and having an easter egg hunt!

    My parents blew out the yolks of eggs, colored them, & made an egg tree for Easter.

    What beautiful eggs! I’m really interested in those pencils, I think my kiddos would love them. Favorite memory; every year my family would have a foiled choc Easter egg hunt on Easter morning. We would wake up to metallic eggs everywhere around the house. When we became teenagers my parents said we wouldn’t do them anymore. My brothers & I rebelled against that idea so we had them even into our college years! Now the Easter bunny leaves foiled eggs for my kids too. :)

    I was raised Jewish and went on my first Easter egg hunt with a friend in elementary school. It was AMAZING! I remember a big swing and a zillion kids running through the woods finding eggs.

    My favorite Easter memory is seeing a pastel basket filled with marshmallow eggs, jelly beans, and my beloved stuffed “Bunny Blue” one Easter morning!

    My favorite memories are of making colorful Easter eggs! My dad once ate one of my good eggs that I wanted to save! But I remember also getting wonderful Easter baskets!

    My favorite childhood memory from Easter is decorating eggs with colored dye, crayons, and those printed plastic shrink wraps. It was fun to use my creativity to make such colorful eggs! Now that I’m a mom, I hope for my son to make those same memories…but using natural and non-toxic supplies instead!

    Love the pops of neon! Super cool how the Stubby Pencil Studio crayons are made from beeswax and soy. My favorite Easter memory is how instead of getting a basket full of candy, the tradition at my house was that the Easter Bunny would bring me a basket full of books! It helped drive my creativity and lifelong love of reading.

    My favorite Easter memory is coloring the eggs and hiding them for an Easter egg hunt with my children.

    My favorite Easter memory is collecting eggs from my Grandmoms chickens and then dying them with my cousins.

    My family traveled quite a bit when I was growing up. We lived in 17 countries by the time I started high school. Not every country celebrated Easter with an Easter bunny and chocolates and certainly not an Easter egg hunt (which I loved). We would celebrate Easter how the country we were living in celebrated Easter. I remember one year receiving a plate of candy instead of a basket that was delivered by a donkey, the next year it was the church bells that delivered our Easter treats. I love Easter.

    My Easter memory is teaching my daughter about colors and what colors mixed together make other colors by dying eggs. Of course she end up with some funky colored eggs, but that is the fun of dying eggs with children!
