We enjoyed exceptionally spectacular weather for Easter yesterday, and the kids were thrilled to find their Easter eggs outside for a change. I had plans to take a cute photo of all three kids dressed up, but Johnny was set on wearing his “I’m a Big Brother” shirt and pride in big brotherhood is not something I’m about to criticize.
I’m absurdly pleased with how our Easter eggs turned out. First we melted crayon shavings on them like last year, and then we stuck them in some dye. Don’t they look spectacular? Make crayon shavings – either by grating them or slicing them off with a knife (my preferred method), and gently roll the eggs with them using forks or spoons while the eggs are still hot from being boiled. The trick to getting the crayon shavings to look pretty is to keep the shavings large and not to add to many of them.
