Eggstravagant

I’m just getting around to posting some of the pictures from our Easter egg decorating party. This was the first time we did this with the kids, and it was a success. Not a smashing success, thank goodness, but a lot of fun. They experimented with crayons and dyes, and we colored bantie hen and duck eggs in addition to the regular chicken variety. In case you’re not egg-savvy, the only real difference is the size. Here they are, left to right, bantam and chicken and duck:

The fun part was going out to grandpa’s farm and seeing the different birds that had laid each kind of egg. I hope he finds us a goose egg one of these days to add to our catalogue.

Here is L’s first ever decorated egg. She decorated it with a purple crayon and then tried to take a bite, which was not successful.
