The Art of Pysanky Displaying Creativity on Eggs

Few years ago for the first time I tried the beautiful art of Pysanky. I like how this art gives us a different canvas to work on - eggs! And how it requires us to display patience and give a little bit of thought in to how we want the colours to show as we work with a variety of special dyes and layers of wax. I am excited that we can now purchase the unique line of essential tools and supplies for this art that are made in made in Canada easily from Ukrainian Egg-Cessories.

Decorating Eggs and Celebrating the Joy of Spring with Kinder

Everyone in my family loves spring! Although, we don't celebrate Easter we enjoy decorating eggs, and each year I like to explore different techniques. My children join me during this craft/ science activity. This year, we explored the Ukrainian method of painting eggs called pysanky. This Eastern European art of egg decorating is similar to batik, and the method requires the use of wax and dye.

Fresh from the Field Riverdale farm event

Did you know 60% of Ontario's younger generation is unaware of where their food comes from?  As a reason, Farmers Feed Cities has taken initiative to educate people about farms.  My family and I were invited to Riverdale farm to learn about farm life, visit the farm animals, to play interactive games and to speak with farmers.

Fun with Jake and the Never Land pirates

Ahoy! Mates,

Jake and the Never Land pirates: Peter Pan returns is available on DVD since April 3rd; it has over 2 hours of special features.
This story is about Peter Pan's missing shadow. While Peter was playing the game Catch-me-if-you-can, he looses his shadow and Captain hook takes it. He goes to ask his friend Jake's help. His friends Izzy, Cubby and parrot Skully join to work as a team to find Peter's shadow. Peter needed his shadow to fly so he had to get it back from captain hook.
This is a lovely movie with lots of songs to keep the children entertained while you are doing some spring cleaning and catching up :)
Painting egg shells. This could be a lovely activity for anytime of the year. To make these Pirate eggs we need to remove the inside yolk and white. First shake the egg carefully, then use a sharp skewer or fork and pierce the narrow end of the egg. Make the pierced part a little big, place a bowl and invert the egg to remove the inside and save it for cooking.
Wash and let the eggshell dry upside down.
We painted these eggshells using sharpie markers.
To make holders
Cut a strip of light board or construction paper about 1" wide, for the length measure the circumference of one side of the egg.
Decorate the strip.
Then slit 1/2" on one corner of the strip from the top and for the other corner cut from the bottom 1/2" (click on the above picture and look closer).
The slits should go into each other and attach.

Think outside of the box with Hasbro

Spring is almost here and many of will be buying egg shaped chocolates for the little ones to give as gifts and to stuff baskets. Instead of giving chocolates why not give play-doh that comes in an egg shape container.

This play-doh comes in cute containers shaped like a bunny and a chick, which also has the stamp on the bottom to create chicks and carrots.

Mr. Potato head is always a favourite with little ones over the age of 2.

Think outside the basket this year :)

I created this image using my memories scrapbook software which I won from Creative mind. Thank you Khadija.

French toast

Making french toast is simple, healthy and a wonderful start for the day.

What you need...

4 to 6 slices of bread
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1 to 2 tbsp butter or margarine

Beat the egg and milk with a whisk.

Heat an omelette pan to medium high heat. Dip or soak the bread for a minute to coat each side, put a dab of butter on each side of the bread before putting on the heated pan.
Ask an adult for help when using the cooker. Cook layering the soaked bread a slice or two at a time depending on the pan. Flip and cook the other side. Sprinkle sugar if needed and serve warm on its own or with fruit.

Boiled egg for a quick breakfast

Sometimes simple is best... what you need for this quick healthy breakfast.

Ask an adult for help when using the cooker or cutting.

2 eggs
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups of water to boil
1 cup of cold water to cool the eggs

Boil the egg for about 10 to 12 minutes with water. After offing the cooker leave the eggs for 5 minutes. When it is cool and safe to handle put the boiled eggs in a bowl and put a cup of cold water in it.
When it is cold enough, roll the eggs in-between your palms so the hard shell comes off easily.

After removing from the shell cut the egg with a butter knife. Sprinkle a little bit of pepper and salt. Eat while it is warm with toast or all on its own.
