Eggs (Weekly Unplugged Project)- Part 1

By , March 23, 2008 6:26 pm

Happy Easter to those of you who celebrate Easter, and Happy Spring (or Fall, if you are in the Southern Hemisphere) to those of you who don’t.

I have spent my Easter Sunday dozing in bed feeling horrible with some sort of nasty stomach thingy. The last thing I felt like doing was a project with my kids. Plus the theme…eggs, well, isn’t that kind of like…food? Impossible!

I have optimistically added a “Part 1” to this title so that when I am feeling more alive again, perhaps we will do the egg Unplugged Project and post about it. We had been going to try dying eggs using fruits, vegetables, and plants. I have never tried making natural dyes for eggs, so I was looking forward to it. Oh well. Hopefully we’ll get to it later. No promises though.

I’ll put up Mr. Linky for those of you healthy people who were able to do the project this week. Please also leave a comment so we can still find you if Mr. Linky malfunctions and I have to take him down.


Next week’s project theme is:

    Hi :) I love your blog and ran across your unplugged weekly theme a couple of weeks ago and thought it would be fun to participate. And with it being Easter and all what a perfect time to join in since there is an abundance of egg crafts to do :) We had fun coming up with a project and will have to think up a rock one for next week! Hope you feel better soon, we just got over a nasty bug to :(
    Happy Easter.

    We did natural dyes this week. Perhaps you can pick up some tips from our short comings – use white eggs and turn often :-)

    Hope you’re feeling better soon! We did our project early, and used condensed milk and food coloring (oops, food again!) to paint paper eggs.

  8. Ugh, I was SICK too, throwing up Sat night and Sun. I did all our Easter eggs right before it started luckily and today I’m better. Although the thought of eggs still is grossing me out! Sorry to here your Easter was like mine!

    Michie sent me here to link to our natural dyes we tried but they weren’t that great. Today we made egg tempra paint and that wasn’t so great either. So maybe my link shoud be -what you shouldn’t bother attempting to do when it’s already done so well!!
