CUSTOM

IN MY FAMILY AT EASTER TIME WE ALWAYS HARD-BOIL EGGS AND DIP THEM
IN A FOOD COLORING AND THEN DECORATE THEM OR MAKE THEM UP AS DOLLS.
WE DECORATED THEM BY WRITING A NAME ON THE EGG WITH WAX BEFORE
BOILING, OR WE DREW ON THEM. THE DOLLS WERE MADE BY USING THE
COLORED EGG AS THE BODY AND BUILDING OUT FROM THERE.
