Dying Eggs

Even though we don’t eat hard boiled eggs, I made a dozen of them to dye for Easter. Matthew had chosen to dye sets, one with sand and another with stickers.

We mixed up the tablets in vinegar and enjoyed watching them fizz. Matthew dropped the eggs in the dye bath and then headed downstairs to play while the eggs sat. He had a hard time waiting. Every 30 seconds he’d yell up the stairs “Are the eggs done yet?” and I’d say, no, they’ll be done when the timer goes off…

Once we had the eggs dyed we attacked them with glue, sand, and stickers.

I love how he is sticking out his tongue in concentration.

If I had been more on top of my game, I would have gotten a picture of the finished eggs. They were very appropriate as a 3 1/2 year old’s craft project. We enjoyed looking at them all week. Then I threw them out, because you really aren’t supposed to leave eggs out for a week.
