Egg Blowing & Egg Painting!

It's Easter Monday today, so here is a bit of traditional art - and a special skill - that you can learn. Before the invention of chocolate Easter eggs, eggs were still a symbol of the festival... but they were real eggs that had been painted. You can either do this by hardboiling some eggs (then letting them cool down first) so that they don't break while you are painting them... or you can try to blow the yolk and white out from the inside of the shell without cracking it! There is an old phrase that means when you try to tell somebody what to do when they already know how: "Teaching your grandma to suck eggs." Well, this is where it comes from... but can your gran really do it? The rest of your family? Perhaps you can learn from the videos and instructions linked below and teach them!
