Easter, more than eggs ( kind of ).

Even though Easter is still a month away, I catch myself thinking what fun projects I should prepare for the girls . I love decorating eggs, taking the food basket to church and growing alfalfa and wheat sprouts for our table display. These are signs of spring to me and that's how I remember Easter in Poland. To be honest I am trying to implement as many possible Polish traditions into my house. I want both of my daughters to recognize their heritage and maybe in the future pass some of the Polish culture to their own kids.  In Poland we have an extraordinary tradition of using liquid wax for drawing on eggs and coloring them after all.  The eggs turn out to be real pieces of art. Just like this...

When having free time I started searching for some clever ideas for decorating eggs. Here are some of them. Click on the images below to find out how they were made and to read about the artists behind the eggs. Have fun!
