our egg ritual

yes, i’ve posted this one before [1]… and it’s because we’ve just realized that this is becoming one of our springtime rituals in our house. sure dying easter eggs is fun, but watercoloring wooden ones leaves a lasting impression.

a package was delivered to us last week from casey’s wood products [3]. when i opened it and N saw a bunch of wooden eggs of all sizes, she started jumping up and down… “we’re painting wooden eggs again!?!? yay!!!”

[4]

because we were having a few families over for dinner, N wanted me to woodburn the names (blurred out below) of the kids onto a few of the eggs (and one for her, of course) with my trusty woodburning tool.

[5]

then she was totally absorbed in watercoloring the eggs with colors that remind her of those people.

after polishing the eggs with our homemade wood creme [7], we presented them in a nest to the kids at the dinner. the artiste was very proud.

[8]

i think we’ll do this every year… as gifts, and as decor for our own nature tables and baskets. what springtime rituals do you have in your home?

sharing the joy
