Eggs, Crayons and Paint




It was such a beautiful sunny day up here in the mountains today, Lou and I did some Easter craft outside. I blew the egg yolk and white out of the eggs a couple of weeks ago and had them drying out on the window sill ready to be painted on.




Lou took a picture of my egg as I was drawing on it with wax crayon. We then painted over the wax crayon. We had to be careful not to press too hard as the shell could break, as Lou's big brother found out when he was drawing on his egg this afternoon.




We left them out in the sun to dry. This week we might try to make some felted eggs.




After Lou was finished, he went off and played. I got out some paper, played around with the paint and crayons, and came up with a new header for the blog. It's a bit rough, but I like it.


What do you think?
