Pysanka Easter Eggs in the Classroom

 

This has been an activity that’s consumed my thoughts for a while. Typically, the more something consumes my mind the more excited I am about it. I was on the search for a fun Easter Activity appropriate for Upper-Grades. It wasn’t until I stumbled across Pysanky: Ukrainian Easter Eggs, that I knew I had found it. The anticipation for the final reveal ignites engagement, the process requires higher-order thinking, and the end product is completely beautiful. This process allows students to keep and treasure their pysanka for years to come.

In my mind, this project is for 10-year-olds and up, however, 3rd graders continue to surprise me! If you teach 3rd grade and have success with this project in your classroom please let me know! If you teach high-school, please consider introducing your students to the actual tools, and crafts of pysanka. I had to try it for myself and was immediately enveloped by my fascination for the craft. I told my husband that this was my new therapy, a better word would have been my new obsession.

Pysanka has been around for thousands of years. Pysanka comes from the Ukrainian word, “pysaty” which means, to write. Painting an egg and writing on an egg are two completely separate things. In Pysanky, a tool known as a kistka is used. Think of it as a stick with a small metal funnel at the end of it. The funnel is used to scoop up beeswax, then melt it over a flame. Once the temperature is right the wax drizzles through the funnel, allowing the user to draw with wax on the easter egg. Intricate designs can be created by alternating layers of wax and dye. Traditionally, only the colors white, yellow, red and black were used. Later, green dye was also introduced. Once the design is achieved the wax is melted off using the candle’s flame. As you remove the wax the different layers of colors once protected by the wax show through.

I set out to come up with a classroom-friendly, no flame necessary, pysanka copycat for kids. Like many, I had experimented with crayons and egg dye in the past, but I had never considered melting the wax off the egg. This ended up taking a few trials and errors to perfect, but I am so excited to say that I present this process to you with full confidence.

Let’s get started! Before we can begin you need to order supplies for your students. Like craftivites in the past, I take into consideration the cost it takes to outfit your entire class with what they need. I know this is likely coming from your own pocket, which means I strive to bring the most cost-effective and engaging ideas to you!

Supplies:

Egg Dye: Traditional Pysanka Egg Dye is beautiful and toxic. A simple food-safe dye will give you a similar effect. If you are nervous about artificial dyes or have a student sensitive to specific food dyes,  I’ve also included a more natural option below. I would highly recommend purchasing the black food dye as well, not only is it a traditional pysanky color, but the contrast is really stunning. To make the dye simply mix 1/2 cup of water with 1 TBSP of vinegar and 20-25 drops of the desired color. 

Picture Book: Not necessary, but who doesn’t love Patricia Polacco. This is a really sweet book about a Babuska that paints and decorates award-winning eggs. One day an unruly guest may stand in the way of her prize. A friendship blooms and miracles are witnessed. This really is a perfect read-aloud to tie in to this activity. Students can also seek out inspiration from Polacco’s illustrations for their own designs!

Egg Stands: If you plan to blow out the eggs, which is my recommendation. I also suggest gluing the eggs to a stand. This will prevent them from tipping over and allow them to be enjoyed for years to come. Don’t panic, I used my MacGyvering skills to come up with an extremely affordable alternative. Technically, they are for peg dolls. Technically, they work swimmingly.

  • Jumbo Push Pins  If you don’t already have a pack of jumbo push pins in your classroom, I highly suggest purchasing a pack. They are the perfect size to allow you to get a better grip and handle on what you’re doing. I use these for the String Art Christmas Ornaments as well. However, I was able to have success poking a hole in the egg with both regular thumbtacks and a regular push pin as well!

  • Masking tape or Painter’s Tape: You will secure a piece on both the top and bottom of the egg when piercing it. The tape gives the pin a better grip as well as secures the egg to prevent it from cracking.
  • White Vinegar: Allows the dye to better adhere to the egg’s shell. We’re talking CHEMICAL REACTION.
  • Coarse Screws: You will use these to make the larger hole in the bottom of the egg if blowing them out. It took a little trial and error before my husband suggested a screw. He’s a gem, and these worked like a gem. Honest to goodness foolproof way for emptying an egg.
  • Eggs: (Raw) Make sure you give them a nice little rinse and scrub before dying them. If they are from the grocery store a lot of times they are sprayed with a wax-like substance that can affect the dying process. If you have a student with an egg allergy. Try these Dyeable artificial eggs. They work, they don’t work well, but they work. Make sure to allow adequate time for the color to set in. (they are $$$ on Amazon, Target is your best bet :D)
  • Syringe Pack: When blowing out an egg you’re supposed to use your mouth…No thanks. THESE WORKED BEAUTIFULLY. Honestly, better than I imagined they would.

  • (Recommended for Upper Grades) Regular Crayons 2 Pack 64 Count: Regular crayons are going to be your best bet to get the best coverage, better wax resistance, and most contrast with your colors. Interestingly enough not all the crayons are created equally when it comes to this project. I found that your reds, purples, and blues perform the best. See my visual in the process below. Keep in mind these crayons require more heat in order to be wiped away. This can easily and safely be done with a blow dryer. From my little science experiment if you plan to let the eggs soak or want better coverage regular crayons are your best bet. Red, blues, purples seemed to perform the best.
  • (Recommended for younger grades)Washable Crayola Crayons: I know it seems so wrong to purchase crayons when you are surrounded by broken remnants everywhere in your classroom. These worked really well because of their “lavability”, melting point. These released and wiped clean easier than the regular crayons did.  However, some colors worked better than others. I’d avoid purple, it went on very smooth but didn’t adhere to the egg like I wanted it to. You also want your egg dry before adding more designs with your crayon. These crayons will work better for younger grades because the wax doesn’t need to reach as high as temperature to be removed. The only caveat is that these crayons are designed to be washable with warm water. This means if you plan to soak your eggs for a long period of time, you risk the crayon simply washing off. The bonus is that if you are nervous about using heat or a blow dryer to remove the wax you could technically just wash it off with warm water to get a similar effect.
  • Class Set Crayon SharpenersNot necessary but a good idea for students wanting to achieve a more fine and delicate design.

If you’re like me, then you are itching to get your hands on an actual Kistka and try your hand at some genuine Pysanky. Below is the kit I purchased and it was perfect! I am legitimately planning a Pyskany Party for friends and family to try their hand at this ancient craft!

Pysanka in the Classroom: Tutorial

Traditionally, when creating pysanka if you plan to blow the eggs, you often begin with an egg that has been blown, then use the melted wax to cover the holes. Because we are using crayons, this is not an option. The following is a tutorial I created with students and a classroom environment in mind. 

  • Begin by gently rising your eggs with light dish soap to remove any dirt or wax coating.
  • You may want to map out your design using a pencil before beginning.
  • It can also be helpful to divide your egg into different sections using your pencil, consider vertical or horizontal stripes on your egg to help guide your design.
  • When working with pysanka, it’s helpful to have your end goal in mind as you begin. Often you will have to work backward as you consider which order you will dye your egg, and what designs must be covered in their wax barrier in order to achieve the desired look!
  • Grab a crayon and begin your design. Remember the color of your crayon doesn’t necessarily matter. It is simply providing a protective wax coating from the dye. Anything you cover with crayon at this point will show through as the egg’s color once you melt the wax off.   ***Consider purchasing the Reading Passage, the passage includes an introduction to some of the most popular designs used in pysanka, their examples, and their meanings!

  • Once you’ve completed your first pass of crayon wax, (everything you want to show through as the egg’s color (White) you will then soak your egg in the first egg dye. ****Always start with your lighter colors of dye, you will build on your dye.
  • Typically yellow is the first color you will dye your egg. Place your egg in the dye and let it soak. The longer you let your egg soak the more rich the color will be.
  • Once the color is to your liking, remove the egg and pat dry. Be especially careful if you are using super washable crayons. The soaking alone will pull the wax from the eggs. Regular crayons are your best bet. I only suggest ultra washable crayons for your younger grades to make wax removal easier.
  • Now that your egg is dry, grab your same crayon and do a second pass of crayon wax layer. This time you are covering your egg in wax anywhere you want the NOW colored egg to show through. So if I were doing a flower, and I had just dyed my egg yellow, I may use the crayon to cover the center of the flower. That way when I melt the wax off, the yellow center will show through.
  • Consider which dye colors you have and which color you would like next. If I just used Yellow, I may place my egg in blue dye briefly next to get a green layer of dye.
  • Continue using your crayon to create a barrier of wax between the egg and the dye, then placing the egg in the next desired die color.
  • Once your design is complete, place the egg in the final color. This is where I like to use the traditional black dye. I also like to let the egg soak overnight to have a high-contrast with the layered colors protected beneath the crayon wax layer.
  • Once the desired color is reached, remove your egg and pat dry, removing any excess water or dye.
  • Next is where the magic happens!
  • Grab a blow dryer and on low heat, careful not to burn any fingers, direct the heat at the layers of crayon wax on your egg. Wipe away the wax delicately using a paper towel, careful not to break your egg!
  • Continue this process until no crayon wax remains, and your design is revealed!
  • Now you need to “Blow Out” your egg. 
  • In order to blow out your egg, you will need a small hole on both the top and bottom of the egg.
    • Be very careful, and cautious during the next steps! There is nothing more heartbreaking to get to this point only end up with a broken egg!
  • Place a piece of masking tape at both the top and bottom of the egg. **See video for clarification. The tape will help to reinforce and stabilize your pressure as you pierce the egg. It also gives you a little more grip on the slippery eggs!
  • Next, take the pushpin and carefully use the pushpin to get your hole started. Once the push pin can fit through you will then use the coarse screw to make the hole a little larger.
  • Using the coarse screw,  very carefully and VERY slowly, begin to drill a slightly larger hole into your egg by twisting the screw back and forth.
    • The top hole does not need to be very big, this is where the air will be passing through. I make the top hole big enough so an unfolded paper clip can fit through it. (I use the unfolded paper clip to “scramble” the yolk before blowing it out.
    • The bottom hole will need to be slightly bigger, this is where the yolk will pass through.
  • Once your top hole is finished, use the unfolded paperclip ***Only the straight part, any bend in the paperclip may cause a break in the egg. Use the straight part to stir around the insides breaking up the yolk.
    • Another great option, as opposed to the paper clip, would be a TOOTHPICK or a Nail.
  • Follow the same process as above to now make a hole in the bottom part of the egg. This hole will need to be slightly larger, once the screw can go through it.
  • Now use the baby nasal aspirator to create a seal around the top hole. Hold the egg over a bowl, or garbage… Using slight but constant pressure, begin to press air into the egg, causing the yolk and whites to drain out the bottom hole.
    • ***Anytime there seems to be resistance to the draining, DO NOT ADD MORE AIR, instead pause, and use the toothpick, nail, or straightened toothpick to again “scramble” the insides.
  • Continue this process until the egg is completely drained.
  • Once your egg is drained use a paper towel to dry the egg. Then make sure to wash your hands. Continue to let the egg dry and air out. Once dry you can attach the egg to an egg stand using glue!

To my dear teacher friends still in school, I've got a FREE Father’s Day project I think you will love! Those of you are home with kiddos of your own, consider this fun activity for your Father’s Day Celebration! This is a great #endofyearproject that doubles as a #fathersdaygift 💛🍋💛
This product is available in both a printable and digital version that’s completely editable through Google. If you have a student or child interested in Digital Design, this is a fun way to introduce and experiment with different design tools.

The most beautiful illustration by @paigepayne_creations Keep reading for some of the most powerful quotes from Dr. Martin Luther King’s powerful, “I have a Dream,” speech:
🍋
“I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream.”
🍋
“I have a dream that one day right there in Alabama little black boys and little black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.”
🍋
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
🍋
“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed — we hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”
🍋
“I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave-owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood.”
🍋
“In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds.”
🍋
“When we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual: “Free at last! Free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”

🎉🎉VISION BOARD G.I.V.E.A.W.A.Y
YOU GUYS!!! This one turned out better than I expected 😍😍😍 EVERYONE NEEDS A VISION BOARD.
🍋 TEACHERS
🍋 STUDENTS
🍋....EVERYONE
This became more and more apparent as I created this product and researched the value in having one. Due to it’s late debut in the #goalsetting season you can snag it at 50% off (the lowest price it will EVER be).
-
In a nutshell, you and your students will create a digital vision board that will act as a daily reminder when you set it as your computer, tablet, or smart phone’s new wallpaper or lock screen! I’ve created 26 EASY to use templates that create completely customizable and BEAUTIFUL designs, along with over 150 moveable “stickers” to make something truly eye catching (one of the requirements of an effective vision board) If that weren’t enough, I wanted to make sure you had the support materials to provide a really complete and educational project. So I’ve also included over 30 support activities, video tutorials, and extensions. Students will learns about vision boards, what makes them effective, the elements of a wellness, their circle of control, SMART goal setting.... and MORE! I know you are going to love this and so will your students. Even more, I know this has the potential to make a difference and lead to growth, and that is pretty satisfying. I’ve been working hard on this beauty and I NEED to get it in some classrooms!
Want this pretty little thing for you and a #teacherfriend for FREE???

Each year our family gives a favorite Christmas book to some of our loved ones. (I wish I was able to get my hands on more of them!😭) With the passing of author Tomie dePaola, it seemed appropriate to give one of his. Reading this book, THIS year, made me cry. I struggled to make it through as it highlighted my weaknesses and put into words what I've been trying to set aside and not deal with. Last year I had great intentions of celebrating a more Christ centered Christmas, December arrived and again my intentions remained only that. Reading this story struck a cord in my soul. I'm old Befana. There may only be a few days left until Christmas, but I'm going to be intentional with them. On that note, I'll be taking a break from social and working to reground myself with the foundation that matters, and refocus my attention on Him. Love you all, MERRY CHRISTMAS!

2020 the Year of the Poppies
.
.
.
“... You may not know this about me, but I love gardening, especially flower gardens. I'm no good at it, and again my good intentions out do any action on my part, leaving an often neglected and overgrown sight, however, I still love it and love learning, reading, and experimenting with different blooms. One of my favorite flowers is a poppy. I think there is so much to be said about and learned from these flowers. From the alien-like tubers you plant, to the fury foliage it produces, one would NEVER think that something so weed-like could ever produce such a gorgeous sight... And then... It does. Is that not life? Is that not 2020? This year has been hard for everyone, especially for some that I love the most, and yet despite everything, there has been beauty.

I truly believe that some of life’s most beautiful moments are produced after the hard or ugly. Is that not the Gospel and Hope found in Christ? Through His Grace the hard and ugly things we go through can actually be the source of something really beautiful, something better than we could have imagined, even a better version of ourself? 2020 has been hard, it’s still hard. But because of that hardness I’ve seen growth and light and beauty that I never would have expected. From repaired and renewed relationships, to a new focus on family and what’s really important, to things working out when they shouldn’t, to a beautiful new addition to our family... The increase is through Him. I think for me 2020 will always be the year of the poppies.
