decorated eggs

The egg was a symbol of the rebirth of the Earth in celebrations of spring (spring equinox). It was later adopted by early Christians as a symbol of the resurrection of Jesus (Easter). Get together with loved ones and make some decorated eggs, we did. We used crayons, stickers, dye, paint, rubber bands, and designed cello that shrinks for our creations. Here are the results and it was a lot of fun. The golden eggs were the coolest. Happy Spring! Happy Easter!
