Dying the eggs

I thought we might be too busy Saturday night, so we colored our eggs Friday evening. We covered the table with newspaper and got to work. The girls just had on their long johns because if they got stained it wouldn't matter.

We used two different coloring kits this year.

This was the traditional egg coloring kit.

This is one of those things that the kids look forward to every year!

It is a lot of fun to see the colors.
It seems that the colors are much brighter now than they were when I was a kid.
We colored the second set of eggs with a "tie dying" kit.
You add drops of liquid dye to the egg and you kinda smoosh it around on the egg. You hold the egg in a plastic bag and use the bag to smoosh the colors around. The bag is supposed to protect you fingers from getting too stained....

It doesn't really work!

But the eggs turned out great! We colored a total of 35 eggs.
