Our wonderful guest host for the week, Chantelle from @minimarshmallows_mum, continued her very creative series #AdventuresOfEggward. It’s now etched in Creatively Squared yolk law...catch up on his past adventures here - Easter Inspired Creativity

We discovered that Eggward and his love Megg got their happily egger after and are now the proud parents to Yolko. This year’s Egg Hunt saw Eggward mix with some royal eggs and he tried his hand at some free range spy work. What eggventures will Eggward get up to next year I wonder?

These beautiful ‘cabbage’ eggs were shared by @laurajhnstn. The different colour gradient is achieved by soaking the eggs for different lengths of time in a dye created from red cabbage...genius! Laura has shared her full method in her stories, including the marbling and speckled effect how-to...jump over to her story highlights to find out more and discover her original inspiration for this eggperiment. I’m definitely saving this one for next Easter.

Our Egg Hunt challenge coincided with this year’s  Earth Day and Instagram’s own #WHPplanetearth challenge. This image from @myweekend_inspiration really struck a chord with me. Dana’s hands hold a beautifully decorated egg symbolising planet earth and a very poignant message:

“Earth is powerful, but fragile like an egg and if it breaks we cannot put it back together. So let’s take care of her. Let’s be better every day, for her, for us, for our kids and for future generations. Because yes, there is only one.”

What would a Creatively Squared Egg Hunt challenge be without some clever edits and these ones really cracked it!
