Recently / EGGS

Untitled-3
We boiled a bunch of eggs and dyed them last night. Prehaps we will try more advanced techniques when the kids are older, but for now, we simply drew on the eggs using some Sharpies and dyed them using a store-bought kit. Hubs was the artist, but Anna scribbled on a couple of them, too.  Although according to her, they were not just scribbles, but actually a butterfly and an earthworm from her recent favorite book, Bob and Otto.

She was very excited about the whole thing. After the eggs were dry, I put a stack of Easter stickers in front of her and she LOVED decorating the eggs with them.

When it was all said and done, she couldn't stop playing with her eggs. She kept on picking them up, putting them down, and talking to them. Haha. So cute.

Oh, lets not forget about Will! Poor guy didn't know what to do with himself. He sat at the table with us in the beginning, but wiggled himself down. Then he threw a fit because everyone else was at the table and he wanted to be involved. Finally, I just gave him an egg to hold and he was all smiles. And yes, that egg made it out safely. Whew.

  1. This was actually pretty fun. I"m not sure we have to wait for easter to dye eggs. Or maybe its just coz I like to eat them afterwards...

    Can't wait to see what the kids draw up next year!

    1. We need to use some kind of natural dye next time so the eggs are safer to eat.
