Easter Eggs

I bought stuff to dye eggs with the kids weeks ago but finally got around to doing it this afternoon!  I must admit that I am not a huge fan of dying eggs...its really messy and has potential for great disaster...but I kind of feel obligated to let them do it!  Plus, they always enjoy it. 

 Avery is very type A (doesn't like her colors to mix,  etc) so I planned on letting her dye her eggs first before the boys got a hold of them!  But Griff discovered that she was out there so she was glad that he joined her.  He was much more methodical than last year and did great!

 Graham and I dyed his eggs once the other 2 were finished. He enjoyed it - splashed dye everywhere and ended up spilling the entire cup!  Good thing we were in the garage!

 These are Avery and Griffins final products.

and here are Graham's!


  1. They're all beautiful! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I know that Graham thought they were beautiful!! All that matters, right!!

  2. I'm totally with you on dying eggs. Not my favorite thing to do. My trick this year, thanks to Pinterest, was to put an egg in a whisk and then dye it. It worked so much better for my littles and we avoided a ton of the mess we've had in years past. Just dip whisk in cup of clean water each time you switch out eggs. Happy Easter!
