Easter is in the Air???

Spring is threatening to appear, but our rain keeps coming back. I know that most of the country is covered in snow and ice, but here in the south of CA it is cooler but just more wet than usual. I found this unusual idea of making fancy weiners on the web.. I thought it would be a great bar bee in the summer for a kids party...its really simple to make, just take some hard spagetti and then push it into the hot dog and then bioil it for about 5 minutes. that's it.... :)
Since it is almost Easter already...WOW....I thought a tip on making Easter eggs over at Family Fun Crafts would be fun to do...so after searching I found these cool eggs that are easy and made with yarn... my favorite project material... :) All you'll need is: Materials
  •  Thin cotton yarn
  •  Balloons
  •  Craft glue
  • Newspaper
  • Waxed paper
  • Clothespin
  • Clothes hanger
  • Total Time Needed: Weekend Projects Instructions
For each egg, cut twenty 3-foot-long strands of cotton yarn and blow up a balloon to a 6- to 8-inch diameter. Mix equal parts of glue and water in a shallow disposable container.
Cover your work area with newspaper and a sheet of waxed paper. Hold a strand of yarn by one end, dip it into the glue mixture, then wrap it around the balloon. Repeat with the other strands, randomly overlapping them and tucking in loose ends, until the balloon is evenly covered.
Using the clothespin, suspend the balloon from the clothes hanger and let it dry overnight. (Cover the area below it with newspaper to catch drips.) Once the egg is completely dry, carefully poke a hole in the balloon, then pull it away from the string as it deflates. Hang your finished egg with ribbon or yarn.
