Joann's. I thought about sanding them. I thought about putting a base coat on them. What I did was get out a 1" foam brush and just started painting them. I made 6. I put probably 5 or 6 coats on them. I knew I had put enough on them when they dried they had a nice shine still. Before that they would dry and be a flat color like the wood had absorbed the paint.
Then I primed them with chalk I had bought at Walgreens. It was $1 for a plastic box full of 12 large sticks of chalk. I figured when the kids were tired of drawing on their eggs they could draw on the sidewalk. That's exactly what they did.
I wrote their names on the eggs and hid them with a stick of chalk with the other Easter eggs. They had a lot of fun finding them. I had also made an egg for the oldest cousin who was 16. I didn't want her to feel left out even though I figured she was too old for such nonsense. I over heard her say as she sat and drew on her egg "This is so cool."
