Beeswax candles in egg shells

I had some beeswax leftovers and I made six candles as Easter decoration. 

Melt the beeswax (I always do it in a special - bath pot), pour it into the egg shells. Wait for some minutes until a thin crust builds on the top of the melted wax, make a hole into it with a wick. After some more minutes I poured some more melted wax because some cracks have appeared and a new layer will hide them.

I will cut the wick after the wax is completely solidificated.

We will light the candles on Easter Monday at breakfast. How about you?

The dandelion's garland

It is very easy to make while playing outside. It looks great on children and adults as well ... My friend said the other day wearing one of the garlands that she felt very special wearing it.

Pick about 30 dandelion's blossoms with long stems but begin with only four of them.

Place them parallel and wrap the next one around the stems.

Continue until the chain is long enough.

Wrap the last one or two around the stems and "lock" the stems in the loop of the previous wrapping.

Raise your head and enjoy the day wearing the garland.

Natural toys that cost almost nothing

So simple and so much fun:

make a paper drinking cup. drill a hole into a chestnut, tie a string to it and try to catch it into the drinking cup:

The string should not be to short nor to long, mine is about 20 cm long. Have fun with it!

Great movie

Have you noticed a great movie about four babies in four different locations around the globe? You can read more about it here: Bebe(s)
