I love the look of the white on the natural brown. While I'm excited that I could use a non-toxic method to decorate, I'm even more excited that I was able to use local eggs. Thanks, hens!
Before you begin doodling, start by hard-boiling your eggs. My eggs were really natural so I had to wash off a little bit of chicken poop before I boiled them. Gross, gross, but at least I knew they were fresh!
- In a pot, cover your eggs with cold water, about an inch past the top of the eggs.
- Cook the eggs at medium to medium-high heat until the water boils.
- Remove eggs from pot & rinse in cold water in a colander.
- Dry eggs thoroughly before you begin to doodle.
- The chalk marker does take time to dry, so be careful when handling. Try drawing on the top half first, wait for it to dry, & then move on to the bottom half.
I love revisiting holiday traditions. Most of the people I've chatted with about Easter seem to have similar traditions to what my family did growing up. Lots of starched dresses & straw hats for church, egg dyeing, & Easter baskets. If your family had other traditions for Easter, let me know in the comments! Happy spring, gang.
