Wooden Eggs for Easter!!!


Today we got some eggs ready for Easter/Spring.  I bought some unfinished wooden eggs in various sizes and also some unfinished wooden egg cups.  We used some food grade beeswax polish on them, (deciding to go "natural" this year with our eggs).

Here is Ruby putting some beeswax polish onto the eggs...this is such a great thing for kids to do!

Are these eggs not simply gorgeous?!  Now to make some lovely little nests to hold them in!

Happy April everyone!

"April, April,
the snow is gone.
April, April,
the flowers have come.
April, April,
green and brown,
Bells on your collar
and willow on your crown.
April, April
watch the sky,
the showers are sweet,
but soon go by.
April, April,
where are your leaves?
Soon,
soon
they'll be here,
for winter's gone
and Spring is near."
-Elsa Beskow (from "Around the Year")


love and light...Maureen
