I know, I know, I am a day late. Are you surprised? Well, as they say, I am sure it is Tuesday somewhere in the world.
So here we are last Thursday in my Care Group doing Easter eggs. The gang (there were only about 12 of them present) were most bemused when they came in to find desks in the centre of the room and an array of paints, glue, sequins, glitter, crepe paper, rice and lentils gathered for their amusement. Many did not know what was going on. Even the dozen and a half hard boiled eggs in a carton did not give sufficient hint!
"What's this Mrs A?"
"Eggs, we're going to decorate easter eggs....(observes blank face)....have you never decorated
I was blown away. Maybe this is a fundamental Christian thing? Us Anglicans sure decorated eggs when I was growing up; maybe Pentecostals don't go in for pagan tradition?
Nevertheless, once they had got over their timidity and the boys had got over the 'cool' factor which certainly did NOT include painting eggs....I couldn't stop them. I just wish we had had longer.
For more wonderful easter craftiness, head on over to Carrie's for Crafty Tuesday. Perhaps you've got something to share too?
