Easter Crafts

It's Holy Saturday and around here that means coloring Easter eggs.

This year we also tried another craft - sting eggs.

We did the first part yesterday. I don't have any pictures of that because my hands were a sticky mess as I tried to help the kids dip embroidery floss in a corn starch mixture and then wrap them around balloons. We let them dry and today we popped the balloons.

We didn't get quite the effect we were looking for - but we do have something decorative to show for our efforts. We decided that we needed both heavier string and more of it. Maybe next time (if there is a next time).

A Happy and Blessed Easter to all.

It pretty much says it all, doesn't it?
