Let's get to Classified: Mom's Best of 2011!
I have to honestly say that regardless of posting items to Classified: Mom my children and I do a lot of artwork. My daughter (age 3) is the most artful, followed by her youngest brother (20 months) who likes to paint and color. My oldest boy (age 5) isn't always sold on the whole "art experience." So when I originally thought up my Easter Egg Food Coloring Tie-Dye Crayon Resist Post I thought 2 scenarios would occur 1. the idea would flop and 2. My oldest wouldn't be interested. But oh-boy was I wrong. Not only did all three of my children LOVE creating their eggs- they also turned out beautiful (if I do say so myself!)
With very few materials and a whole lot of fun, you can make countless tie-dye eggs while learning about the art of wax resist and color theory.
