Before coloring eggs, we had the kids help out with filling Easter eggs for the younger kids to be able to find in an Easter Egg hunt in the living room (thanks, rain). Afterwards, we filled special eggs for the grown-ups, prized for our first annual family trivia night where the adults would compete for the most eggs that held chocolate and dollar coins. The questions that were asked had to do with family history, current events, pop culture, and other random trivia.
Then it was on to coloring eggs! We decided to skip using crayons to make markings on the eggs this year, as we were more interested in making eggs interesting colors. We just used regular food coloring since I believe it works way better than egg dyeing kits. I did find, however, that the neon dyes didn’t seem to work as well as the regular color food dyes. But they still made pretty colors.
Ok, you guys did see the spoons that I had provided in one of the previous photos, right? Why, then, did my kids insist on using their fingers??? Their fingers are still colored…
There we go. That’s what spoons are for.
One very pretty egg, and a very colorful hand.
