Egg Painting

Last weekend, Makutano House had an Easter egg painting and hunt for the kids. With Scott in Nairobi, Ethan and I thought we'd check it out.

They had boiled eggs to paint, but Ethan chose the paper machier egg. I thought this was a great idea, and will have to do it with Ethan myself next year. They had pre-made a few balloons with 2-3 layers of paper machier. They were sturdy, but still soft, so just the right feeling for an egg. And being a balloon, they were larger for the small hands, and there was no fear of the egg breaking and children crying!



After the eggs were painted, there was an egg hunt around the grounds. Ethan and Alessandro shared a basket, and walked around searching high and low, for the mysterious silver eggs.



This is the beginning of jotting down some fabulous moments in Dar.
