Easter Eggs

P and I made Easter eggs in celebration of, well, Easter!

I got too neurotic after a bit, with P wanting to mix all the colours into each other, so I moved him outside.  Hard to have fun doing crafts when your mother is constantly leaning over your shoulder worrying about spills.

I tried to make marbleized ones by adding a little olive oil to our usual food colouring/water/vinegar mix, but it didn’t work too well – they sure didn’t look anything like I expected.  Not sure what we did wrong.  Even P seemed to notice – he kept saying they were “not finished”, even a day or two after the craft was done.  Maybe he thought they would turn into chocolate eggs if he just soaked them in dye long enough, but no such luck!
