Ukrainian art

One of Ukranians most famous arts is their hand  crafted eggs. My Grandmother is Ukrainian and so was her Dad and she remembers her father making the eggs. He would take an egg and poke two holes at the top and the bottom of the egg. Then he would blow the yoke out. After the yoke was out he would dip it in wax. Then  after the wax dried he would carve in the wax, and then he would paint the egg. After it dryed he had a beautiful egg. The Ukranians keep the eggs around there houses for luck. Here's a way you can make your own.  You must have an adult watching you. Take an egg and have the adult poke two holes on the top and the bottom of the egg. Then blow the yoke out over a cup so you can eat it later. Then take some paint and make a design on the egg. Let it dry for a while, and then your egg is finished to have for luck and decoration.
