On Good Friday we made chocolate easter buns to go with our bought spicy fruit hot cross buns. Easter Sunday was the big egg distribution day, which went down well as always!
Didn't get around to any easter craft until today, the first day of the school holidays. It was cold, so scrambled eggs for lunch sounded good - so how about blown and decorated eggs?
The blowing was reasonably difficult as I had tried to keep the holes small for aesthetic reasons. I made the holes progressively larger depending on who was finding it difficult. Orla made a specially large hole in hers after she had finished getting all the egg out.
Next, the eggs were washed and dried.
Here are the children hard at work dyeing, after having drawn on the eggs with beeswax crayons.
On the rack to dry....
And in their basket on display.
Meanwhile, Ewan still likes how things fit into things.
