Easter Eggs from Outer Space

This year my family decorated Easter Eggs a little differently. We decided to go with an outer space theme. So we divvied up the planets and other astrological bodies and used a combination of egg dye and paint to create the universe. All the pictures are below. Take special note of how nicely this blog post is laid out—it took me hours to do this. Sometimes Blogger is not very easy to work with. You can click on any picture to see it larger (and it’s often worth it).

The complete solar system is shown here:

Here are the individual planets in the solar system and the person who created each:

In light of this year’s festivities, I now think just dying Easter Eggs is kind of boring. I still have this year’s eggs, but they probably won’t last much longer. Next year I think we’ll blow out the eggs rather than hard boil them so that we can seal them and keep them longer.
