Making things was a large part of my childhood and making things for holidays contained the most excitement of all. My favourite Easter tradition from when I was young was to decorate eggs in the Ukrainian style - "Pysanky". A method whereby one uses a "kistka" to draw designs on the egg with melted beeswax. First you would draw out what you wanted to stay white, then dip the egg in the yellow dye, then draw out what you wanted to stay yellow, dip it in the yellow dye, and keep going down the spectrum. The smell of melted beeswax still takes me back to when we'd sit around the table, jars of dye lined up from lightest yellow to darkest violet and then black, a candle to heat up the wax in the tiny little pot on the kistka. I'd keep them on a shelf in my room for months.
My kids are still too young to try this kind of thing right now (we're still in the Paas kits with wild animal stickers stage) but I'm hoping we can in a few years time. I even found this.
What are your favourite traditions for Easter? Hope you're having a great spring weekend!
