So we thought it would be fun to see what you (and I) would do with 1 dozen eggs.
this pin and make some natural dyes. But time got away from me and I found myself at the grocery store on Saturday before this post was due. And so I turned to my usual PAAS coloring kit.
It. Was. So. Fun.
But first let's account for the dozen eggs. 1 got used for crepes on Sunday morning because we needed four eggs, and I only had three left in my carton. So Adam stole from my blog project. 1 egg broke while boiling. That left us with ten eggs to color.
After they were colored I ate a few with my lunches, and Olivia ate a few with her lunches. Let me tell you the yummiest egg salad ever. Mix one perfectly ripe avocado with one or two diced hard boiled eggs. Spread on whole wheat toast. Perfection. I keep wanting to call it vegan egg salad, because no mayo, but then I remember that there are eggs in it. So. . . not vegan.
Olivia is at a great stage in life where she really enjoyed this. We put the tablets in the vinegar and the fizzed and she just thought it was so cool. She was also pretty content to let her dad do the dying, which I'm sure will not be the case in future years so I was happy that it was fairly mess free!
|Our cups of dye all set out.|
|The little brother. So content now that he doesn't have an ear ache.|
|So excited to dye Easter eggs!|
|In her plastic craft apron.|
|1. My egg, I was going for a coral and it turned out more orange :( 2. My other egg, I wanted a light blue and bingo. 3. Yellow with stickers.|
|1. Adam's half and half egg, with stickers courtesy of O. 2. A solid green egg that we let soak for a loooong time. 3. A solid red egg.|
|1. Adam's idea to dye an egg in three different colors. (yellow, blue and purple I think) 2. Half purple, half blue.|
|Don't you wish that hard boiled eggs didn't need refrigeration? Well, don't worry, this was just for a picture. I put them back in the fridge.|
And next month the theme is flowers. Yep, just flowers. Real, silk, paper, fabric. . . super general so you can make it what ever you want!!
We would love to have you link up ANY Easter egg posts, not just recent ones and not just specific What Would You Do posts.
