 Happy Easter Everyone! 

Today my girls decorated Easter eggs.  We did dye some eggs a couple of days ago, but today they spent close to an hour grating crayons of various colours.  They put each different colour of crayon shavings into a separate glasses & added boiling water.  When they dipped the eggs into the different glasses, the colour stuck to the eggs creating beautiful patterns.  The girls were thrilled with the results & though all of my readers here, & on Facebook would love to see them, so here they are!
 

 

Here`s a closeup.  They look a little lumpy, but the colors are beautiful!


This one is KJ, my 9 year old`s favorite.
