Winnie the Pooh Easter Egg Decorating Ideas

In honor of "Winnie the Pooh" returning to theatres in July, Disney has released some fun Winnie the Pooh Easter egg decorating ideas!

WINNIE THE POOH is our beloved ‘hunny’-loving bear, so why not choose one of his favorite things - a honey jar – to create as an Easter egg? You want it to look like a real honey jar so use tape to cover the top of the egg where the lid will be and also a wide strip of tape around the middle for the ‘HUNNY’ label. Boil half a cup of water, mix in 30-40 drops of blue food dye, and one tablespoon of white vinegar. When it cools, gently lower the egg into the pot. The longer the egg remains in the pot, the darker the color gets! Once you are happy with the color, take it out with a spoon, dry it and remove the tape. Then stick the word ‘HUNNY’ in tape to the egg, and pop it back in the pot, just for a few seconds to make the ‘label’ pale blue. Finally, you can use acrylic paint for a blob of honey and leave the word ‘HUNNY’ in the egg’s natural color. If Pooh could see your Easter egg, he might think it looked so much like a honey jar that he would keep it in his personal collection!

TIGGER would be ecstatically happy about painting Easter eggs. You could have a go at painting an egg that looks like Tigger! First, use an orange watercolor crayon to paint the entire egg orange. While it dries, bounce around a bit – Tigger – style! Then draw in the tiger stripes with a steady hand and a black marker and fill them in with a black watercolor crayon. You can use a pink button for the nose and draw on eyebrows, eyes, mouth and whiskers with the black marker. Tigger-tastic!

EEYORE we all know would probably be less excited about painting Easter Eggs, so why not create one of his favorite food -- thistles, of course! All you need are some crayons, a little spinach and also purple and green acrylic paints. Draw the thistle with a crayon, to prevent the area from being dyed. Boil the spinach, letting it simmer for 45 minutes. Put the egg into the water to color it green. The crayon colored thistle won’t dye (due to the wax in the crayon), so you can use acrylic paints to finish your egg. Even Eeyore would have to admit it looks pretty sweet.

PIGLET loves his friends, and his motto is “Even if you are rather small you can still have a very big heart.” Why not paint a Piglet style Easter egg, with huge hearts on it? First, draw seven hearts with a marker, and then use small pieces of sponge with different colors to paint the egg. You can paint the whole egg pale blue like the sky and then paint each of the hearts with one of the colors of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. Piglet would love this Easter egg because it’s small and cute, just like him!

To have more adventures with Pooh and friends, go and see WINNIE THE POOH, the brand new film by Disney, in theatres July 15th!

Earth Day Freebies & Events Round-Up!

Today is Earth Day!  How do you plan to celebrate?  Here are some ideas!

“African Cats” Motion Picture Opens on Earth Day, April 22, 2011

“African Cats” is still more than a week from opening on Earth Day, but moviegoers have already bought $1.7 million in tickets to see the movie during its opening week (April 22-28) and save the African savanna in the process. Thanks to the “See ‘African Cats,’ Save the Savanna” initiative, Disneynature’s pledge to make a contribution in honor of everyone who sees the film opening week already translates to more than 9,500 acres of land within Kenya’s Amboseli Wildlife Corridor—and that number continues to rise.

During the film’s opening week (April 22-28), a portion of the proceeds from that week’s ticket sales will be donated to the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund to ensure the future of lions, cheetahs, elephants, zebras, giraffes and a host of other animals in the vibrant African savanna. The AWF will be working to protect the Amboseli Wildlife Corridor, a passage between the Amboseli, Tsavo West and Chyulu Hills National Parks that is frequently used by a variety of wildlife.

The film, which will be released in theaters worldwide, opens in North America on April 22, 2011. Tickets for groups of 20 or more are already available in the United States by calling 1-888-DISNEY6. Tickets are also available online at

There are also a number of innovative online efforts underway that allow moviegoers to pledge their commitment to the film and in doing so, support the cause.

Review: Here Burns My Candle by Liz Curtis Higgs

I have been a fan of author Liz Curtis Higgs’ books since 2003, when I read her first novel set in Scotland – Thorn in My Heart.  Since that time, I have made it a point to get a copy of her newest title as soon as possible - I am always anxious to return to the beautiful Scottish world in which her characters live.
Based on the first half of the Biblical story of Ruth and Naomi, Here Burns My Candle introduces us to the characters of Elisabeth and Marjory: two widows who must take care of one another when they find themselves alone in the world.  Liz Curtis Higgs has crafted a beautiful picture with this story. I was drawn in and held captive, unable to put the book down until I found out how it ended!  Of course, I now want to read the sequel Mine is the Night again, as well.  The story is beautiful and inspiring - and I can't wait to study the book of Ruth!

Overall, I would highly recommend Here Burns My Candle.  I can't wait to read another Scottish novel from Ms. Higgs!

You can purchase Here Burns My Candle from WaterBrook or from Amazon!

Please rate my review!

Thank you to WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for providing the book for this review! I received no other compensation and all views expressed are my own.
