Christmas, Hanukah, Thanksgiving, St Patrick’s Day, July 4th. These are all special days we mark on our calendars every year; each has its unique aspects the celebration. One especially good way to celebrate Easter.
What is good about the Passover? We all know that it is the day of the resurrection, but it is also the day when we become artists. Why is that? Well, because the best part of the Passover is the immersion of large eggs in a circular watercolor. Yes, it’s time to make Easter eggs!
I just love all the colors and simplicity of those little colorful tablets from Paas. But this year Martha came out with that great Egg Dyeing app and I found the option to mix your colors with food colors.
How do you turn random eggs into bright, colorful art objects ready to be collected by Easter rabbits? It’s really easy, let’s create.
• Wipe the eggs with white vinegar before dipping the dye, it helps to keep the color even.
• Add 1 cup of hot water, 1 teaspoon of white vinegar, and any number of drops the color wheel suggests to achieve your favorite shades. You can simply combine two colors to give a new one. For example, you can mix red and blue to give a purple Easter egg.
As you can see, it is very easy for all ages to get kids involved, it is fun and a great way to spend the holidays. Things may be messy (well, the paintwork is always the same) but Easter fun is to see the fun of weaving together. Just know that you will be doing a lot of cleaning up after that. Well, it’s time to paint those eggs!
