Read through and print off your own Easter Ressurection Eggs. Snag the free printable below. The first set was inspired by a tradition my family has done.

Jesus gave to us.
And then cut them out along the lines. Wrap the strips around the eggs and then secure with tape. Easy! Also if you’re looking for some great coloring supplies, I recently tried PaperMates Ink Joy pens. As a lefty I loved that the ink was specially formulated to dry quicker cause I constantly have that ink mess on my hand. The colors are perfect for coloring the Egg wraps I made. Now here’s what we are wearing in this post. I am wearing a dress from Shop & Apparel. Nora and I have matching clogs from Svens clogs. Nora is wearing a dress from Persnickety and an adorable bunny cape from Tortoise and Hare. The boys have bow ties from Little Mr. from the Baby Cubby and suspenders from Sweet n’ Swag. The flowers are from Fox Glove. And all the photos are taken by Roxana Baker Photography.
