Dyeing Easter Eggs 2010

Dyeing Easter eggs is always a special treat for our family. The kids love any chance to get messy with permission! They wanted to try out a new technique this year - using rubberbands.

Step #1: hard-boil a flat of eggs

Step #2: mix up the dye

Step #3: place rubberbands in desired position and gently rest in a cup of dye

Step #4: wait: 3-5 minutes for desired color

Step #5: enjoy your creation!

We all had a great time throwing all of our creative juices into our egg dyeing. Lizzie loves to make a personalized egg for every person in the family. Jackson just likes to drop the eggs into the dye and watch them whack! on the bottom of the cup. And he likes to pass out BIG kisses when he's feeling close to mama. Logan came up with a cool football style egg.

And, as always, we are always done too quickly. We have about 20 minutes of fun time and then it's over. But look at our beautiful masterpieces all together - they look like spring! er... Easter.

I like the rubberband idea, maybe I'll remember it for next year.
