Easter Eggs


Easter egg dyeing goes so quickly. Before you know it, four children have raced through six eggs each. So we also made tiny fairy handkerchiefs and national flags by tearing small squares of flour sack cloth, to color with wax crayons and dip in dye. Meanwhile, the egg colors set and changed subtly, so we revisited our eggs, with crayons, by rubbing off dye, or by over-dyeing. The natural dye (Eco-Eggs) works poorly on the eggshell, compared to good old Paas, but set beautifully on the flour sack cloth. Overnight, the Easter bunny put on a terrific egg hunt and was generous with the dark chocolate, lopsided-ear bunnies.
