There’s a lot more to Easter then eating chocolate and dyeing eggs.
But it’s still fun to have a go.
I’ve never dyed eggs before! Usually, during the Easter long-weekend, our parents give us some chocolate (and we proceed to consume it so very slowly…so we can have our own private stash of chocolate for as long as possible). We go to to Church on Friday and Sunday, and entertain ourselves eating pie and things in between. But dyeing real eggs?
As my nephew would say: “Sounds like fun!”
|E.B, Mr. X, me, and Mime|
Naturally, with a two-year-old helping and a 4 month old as our supervisor, our eggs were to DYE for. (Yes, you may laugh.) We avoided permanently dyeing our shirts blue, but I can’t say the same for our hands.
Mime went all artistic on her eggs, I just made mine blue, and Mr. X threw his into the bowl. It cracked.
Hardboiled eggs are good.
Of course, we all worked really well under the leadership of Miss E.B. When she said jump, we jumped.
And then she laughed at us.
All in all, it was a pretty successful introduction to the dyeing of eggs.
