One of the sad things about your children growing up is that they don't want to do crafts with you anymore. I miss the painting, the jewelery making, the plaster cast ornaments, but I miss making Easter eggs most of all. I still have a carton filled with eggs that the three of us made over the years and they are still beautiful.

You can hard boil the eggs, or make pin prick holes in both ends of the shell and blow the egg out and make an omelet or frittata with them. At least one of us (usually me) was always sick at this time of the year, so I often just hard boiled them.
