As soon as I saw her beautiful story eggs I knew I had to make some for my boys' Easter baskets. Michael loves stories, as all children do. He loves to hear them and he loves to make them up. So I think these story eggs will be a big hit. The idea is that you line the eggs up and make up a story. So simple and creative!
The eggs are wood burned and then painted in watercolor and sealed with beeswax. Each egg has two pictures, so the toadstool for instance has the frog on the other side. I chose some images I knew my boys would love with no particular story in mind.
A hedgehog, a rain cloud with a little sleepy face, a bunny, and moon.
A sunrise, rainbow, tulip, and caterpillar.
Of course a toadstool! A hedgehog, our gnomes, and a leaf on the other side of the caterpillar. I think I'm more excited for Easter than my boys are! I can't wait to see them opened and the story begun!
More wood-burning to come.
