Easter Egg Decorations that will help Wishes come true

This year we can be part of contributing to a good cause by decorating and sharing virtual eggs with our family and friends.  Heinz and PAAS will be donating $1 up to $25,000 from now until March 31st for every virtual egg we decorate and share using the Free Easter Egg DecoratorApp.  
This app can be easily downloaded for free via the App Store onto our iOS devices or if you don’t own an iPad, iPod or iPhone download it to your computer or laptop.
Here are some app images of the eggs we decorated.  My children and I found it easy to use the app to decorate the eggs.  It is lots of fun to do this is for a good cause, so download your free app and start decorating and sharing with your friends and family.  
We also decorated some real eggs for fun using the PAAS kits.  
There are seven different PAAS egg decorating kits for us to choose from.  
This kit Deggorating Doodles allowed us to use the stencils and pens provided to doodle and decorate.
The Volcano Eggsplosion uses melted crayon shavings to provide instant colour.  
The Touch of Velvet kit uses double stick adhesives and flocking powder to create fun, fuzzy shapes.
Here are some tips to decorating eggs:
To ensure that the eggs don’t crack when they are boiling put 2 tbsp of Heinz Distilled White Vinegar to 4 cups of water before placing the eggs in the pot to boil.  Adding the vinegar will also allow the shells to easily peel off when they are cooked.
We used PAAS egg colour tablets to colour the eggs.  To make the colour on the eggs vivid and bright, add 3 tbsp of Heinz Distilled White Vinegar to 1 tablet and allow it to dissolve.  Once it dissolves add ½ cup of water and stir. 
For the traditional colours use lemon juice instead of vinegar to the first line in the PAAS colour cups, then add water to the second line.
For the pink PAAS tablet to get a brilliant colour the box suggested we use only water.
