Vibrant Easter Eggs, dyed naturally. Thought this would also be a good teaching tool for history...how textiles were dyed long ago. Maybe even try to dye different materials like cotton fabric, yarn, etc with the the natural dyes (science).
Pinner said: my ukrainian grandmother taught me how to make eggs like this when I was young. use melted wax to draw a design on the eggs, allow it to dry, then dip the egg into dye. once finished dying, allow to dry, then warm the wax (she did this over a candle flame), and wipe the wax off with a towel. if you blow the egg insides out beforehand, then the eggs will last forever!

"unazukin is a small fairy. usually she is under the big mushroom in a woods. she really likes to listen to the story of her friends. so, sometimes everybody comes together and she is very busy. because she is very good at listening to the story. she is just listening without saying anything, she is just looking at you, and nodding silently or shaking her head sometimes." - Unazukin website
how flippin' neat! silk-necktie-dyed eggs! Tightly wrap & tie the silk from a necktie around an egg, wrap again with a white cotton cloth, boil eggs for 20 minin water with 1/4 c. of white vinegar, dry, and the pattern from the tie gets imprinted on the eggs! Definitely trying this one! :)
