Dying Eggs with the Littles 

Tips on dying eggsDying Easter Eggs is one of my favorite spring traditions. I’m not exactly sure why… They never turn out very special, I just enjoy doing it. I’d compare it to carving pumpkins. This is the first time I have attempted dying Easter Eggs with Piper.

We set up a table outside to create our masterpieces and invited Danielle and Kolton over, soon to discover 2 might be a little young for this project.

A little tip I found on Pinterest suggested to place a hard boiled egg into the center of a whisk and then dip into the egg dye. Genius! While the egg dying held Piper and Kolton’s attention (which wasn’t long) it worked really well. No one got dye on their hands! It was an easy way to handle the egg without dropping it in the dye and having to fish it out with the tiny egg dippers any dying kit comes with.

It was a matter of minutes before Piper wanted to eat all the hard boiled eggs and Kolton wanted to crack the shells to see what was inside. We still had fun and will definitely try again next year using the same method! 🙂
