Decorating Easter Eggs

All Lent the children have been looking forward to Holy Week, our traditional time to paint Easter eggs, Monday they began painting.
This year Carpenter astounded us with his creativity and artistic passion.

The children paint over a number of days in layers of acrylics. Theses two eggs were painted by Princess.
My friend Jenn has created a longing to decorate in pysanky style, but we have yet to find any kits in Australia.

First the eggs are pierced at either end with a needles, then the yolk and white are blown out.  I recently heard of boiling the shells to totally clean, but we haven’t to date.
The two eggs at the back were decorated by Michelangelo, the egg on the right was painted by Koala a couple of years ago.

Our eggs have become treasured family heirlooms, gracing our table for Easter and carefully stored away each year.

Einstein experimented with a different style this year, the stone washed pink at the left front.
