After School Activity- Blowing Goose Eggs

We collected goose eggs after school today
And before painting them
Liv and Eve were taught to blow them
Messy garden fun

  13. Don't be surprised if you are now invited to speak to a whole school assembly about blowing goose eggs.

  14. Our neighbour who had hands like shovels, used to make hinged decorated duck eggs similar to Fabergé.

  15. Lucky goose eggs!! This is an Easter thing here. I'm of Polish and German heritage, so every 20 years I invade myself, anyway, they're called Pysanki. Somehow, the eggs are blown, hehehehehhehe, I said blown, then wax is applied in multiple steps to create the beautiful, colorful and intricately geometric patterns on the eggs.
    Is this something done in the Spring in Wales? As a youngster, I lived next door to a Welsh church where I participated in eisteddfodau and picked up a life long love of Welsh cookies. Nobody sings like the Welsh. Of all the things I've seen while living next to a Welsh church, blowing goose eggs wasn't one of them. That's why I'm curious whether this is a Spring thing or just something fun to do.

  17. Am I correct in surmising that they'd be easier for kids to paint than the more delicate hens' eggs? Your two delightful girls will indeed remember the magical afternoons they spent with you. How lucky they are!

  21. I showed this to Mom, which led to reminiscing about trying to blow chicken eggs when I was younger. She'd forgotten to warn us not to draw in a breath too close to the egg... being a reasonably sensible person, at least when I was younger, I didn't need that warning... my brother, on the other hand, inhaled a great lot of 'snotty' egg.

    Oddly enough, we never blew eggs again.

    The girls must love coming round to yours, there's always something entertaining to do :-)
