Egg Art

When I was babysitting my Nephews (M aged 3 and Bj aged 22mths) whilst waiting for their baby sister to arrive, it was a great adventure every day to go and collect the eggs with Aunty Sa.

Little hands carefully (?) carried them back to the house – I’m still amazed that for six weeks we made the trip from chook pen to kitchen without mishap.

So what do you do with the eggs sitting on the bench and a pen in reach? Draw faces on the eggs to amuse the boys of course.

 

However, it soon got out of control when the requests for images got beyond my drawing capabilities. Though I think I managed to make a reasonable helicopter egg ;-)

 

 

Here I was thinking I was the only one “silly” enough to draw on eggs – but no I’m not alone. Check out these…

Oh my and then I found these eggs, which take the “drawing on eggs” to a whole different level.

 

These eggs by Ann Ranlett  are nothing short of spectacular. She even presented one to actress Betty White (ain’t she delightful) as a "thank you" for being the featured guest at a fund-raiser for the new "Tall Wonders" giraffe habitat expansion project at the Sacramento Zoo.
