This weekend is Easter! A weekend where the Swedes apparently eat about 2000 tons of eggs (equivalent to about 32 million eggs) and squeeze in 1.4 kg of sweets per person. How crazy is that?
Of course I am also included in that statistic! In our family, we have had a tradition of looking for Easter eggs in mom and dad's garden every Easter evening. Year after year.Packed with sweets! 3 years old or 33, it doesn't matter! You are never too old to look for Easter eggs!
But if you would like to make a slightly more adult version of Easter eggs and skip the loose candy, you can make a bag in box egg instead. Something I tried to do last year and thought was quite fun (see picture below). And it's not particularly complicated either! :)
This is what you need:
Knife and scissor.
A half full bag in box of wine.
Remove the bag from the bib and discard the carton. Cut like two half circles on both edges of the egg halves (So it becomes a round hole when they are put together). Place the spout on the bib bag out through the hole on the egg and place the wine bag itself inside the egg. (You may have to empty the bag a bit to make room depending on the size of the bib and egg (to bad for you! ;). Glue a little along the edges of the egg with a glue gun, put the halves together and let it dry with the wine bag still inside the egg. And voila! You've made a bag in box Easter egg!
Pretty fun, huh? Whether you want to make an egg like this or not, I hope you have a wonderful Easter holiday! We ourselves are going home to Uddevalla spending time with family and friends.
Talk to you soon!
