As eggspected, we’ve had an “EggShellent” idea!!

If you have driven or walked past our window over the last few days, you may have stopped and expressed your shock at the army of bunnies which have taken over! You may have even popped in store to check that it is still being manned by gift wrapping humans. Fear not, it is!

One major component which remains missing however are… THE EGGS!!

This year we thought it would be pretty snazzy to give you guys a chance to be apart of our window. We have a devised a cunning craft activity which can help you achieve said stardom. The aim is to fill the window with as many hand painted eggs as possible. You can blow out and decorate your eggs at home, pop into the store and direct us as to where you’d like your eggs to be displayed in our window. It’s EASY! Even better, the best egg wins a $50 gift voucher. Eggs aren’t the greatest of shoppers so I guess the owner can spend it on their behalf. Happy days!!!

We had some fun in the store today.

Here is a brief “How to Guide” on blowing & painting your eggs…

          STEP 1 – SHAKE IT UP BABY (twisting and shouting is optional)

This is an important step. You may look a bit silly but it will be SO much easier to blow out the yolk once it’s all broken up.

 

 

  STEP TWO – PIERCE THE TOP AND BOTTOM OF THE EGG AND BLOW

If you feel like you are about to pass out just shake the egg a bit more, or take a casual break. Try not to break the egg though.

 

 

        STEP 3 – WASH OUT YOUR EGGS AND DRY

Feel impressed that you only broke TWO eggs!!

 

 

STEP 4 – CUE THE BEAUTIFUL LADIES FOR THE BEAUTIFUL WORK

You can decorate your eggs with poster paint, ink, food dye or anything else you can get messy with! We used chalk markers here which we use for drawing on our windows. We found they work really well as we could put in some detail and they weren’t so messy.

 

 

STEP 5 – TAKE YOUR EGGS TO THE STORE AND WE’LL DISPLAY THEM IN OUR WINDOW

Now you are a local legend..you can tell all your friends!!
