Pascha (Orthodox Easter) is coming up soon (the same day as Western Easter this year) and I’m so excited to prepare with my son now that he’s a bit older. Last week we dyed wooden eggs just as you would a hard boiled egg (food coloring with vinegar and hot water). We’re not big egg fans around here, so wooden worked better for us! He also painted some with glitter tempera paint. They will last for ages and can also be used in his play kitchen. I used this recipe (with jojoba oil from Trader Joe’s instead of olive oil) to add shine and condition the eggs after they dried. I’ve been experimenting with more items as well.
