this was such an epic day! we invited a bunch of our friends with little ones and had people bring all kind of bits and bobs and dyes and such to have an egg art party. obviously, mimosas were had and shared for us "big kids" and sweet and brunchy potlucked yum yums too. i was so surprised at the creativity that happened. it was pretty magical. i experimented with natural dyes which i made prior and brought in jars. check this website out (radmegan.com) for amazing recipes to do so...(click the picture below to do so).
on the table, we laid art paper to line it and protect the table from spills and splatters. next time, i will mos'def put high quality water color paper because it was a serious masterpiece when we were through.
everyone brought so many awesome things to experiment with. i brought stamps and gold stars (which were my fave), crayons, glitter, mesh netting, string, rubber bands, stickers, oil to add to some of the dyes to create a marbled tecture and my collection of egg cups to display them when they were finished...to name a few. my friend jen even brought a real batik wax and candle situation to get crazy with. wow. this is my idea of a good time. mimosas, sunshine and wunderlust. the kidlets and adults were equally enthralled in their creative masterpieces. try this at home!
