Dyeing Easter Eggs



Coloring the Easter eggs is something I actually have to seek out my children to do these days, with one away at college and the other two distracted with their own agendas.  I was able to pull my 14 year old daughter off the webcam to join in, she still loves doing stuff like this.  I had hard boiled the eggs yesterday and brought out the usual cargo that goes along with the dyeing process

White eggs
Good old Paas dyeing kit




White Vinegar and bowls for the colors




Following the directions, we mixed up 6 bright colors with the tablets


Now for the creative part!


When it was done we had 18 beautiful colored Easter eggs.......a little "older" looking than the eggs of years past.....no stickers or wax drawings....but she and I thought they turned out pretty good.  It's always rewarding to do little things like this with your kids regardless of their age!!







Here's wishing everyone a blessed and joyous Easter............now I can eat chocolate again, lol!!!
