Paul, Elizabeth, Finn and I had the day off for Good Friday, although Paulie and Philip had school. (Two separate school districts can be quite annoying sometimes.) We didn't really plan much, so we ended up with a low-key, relaxing day. Elizabeth and Finn wrote on some hard-boiled eggs with white crayons before we dyed them in turmeric, red cabbage, and beets.
Most of them ended up with a kind of film on them that absorbed the color and then that kind of washed off. The kids didn't seem to mind. They liked their slightly colored eggs.
After dyeing eggs, we went on a walk at a local park. Elizabeth and Finn enjoyed collecting bits of nature along the trail to put in a wool bowl on our nature table.
Elizabeth also brought home some moss. She has been taking care of it and watering it in the hopes it will stay fuzzy and green.
After seeing the wool fairies on Waldorf Mama's blog yesterday morning, Paulie thought I should make an Easter fairy. While Finn napped, Elizabeth and I worked on this little Easter fairy with some of the hand-dyed, pastel wool roving she selected at the yarn shop last week.
We had quite alot of fun making this fairy, and Elizabeth thinks we need to make several more fairies together.
Have a lovely Easter weekend!
