In my garage, I have boxes for each season. When looking in this box for their Easter baskets, I found an ANCIENT box of PAAS egg dye. It must have been 10 years old. The pink dye pill was smashed, the edges of the box were old and faded... but I was pretty sure that with some white vinegar we could make them work fine. And we did! Cyan was SO crazy excited she was beside herself. She got out all the eggs we got to boil and dye, and set the eggs to cooking all by herself. (I was around, but doing secret things which I will show later.)
Cyan pulling the eggs out of the water after they were done cooking.
I measured out the vinegar and let the dye dissolve, and then Cyan poured in the 1/2 cup of water in each one.
Then came the fun part, of course! Picking which eggs to put where.
We colored some with a white wax crayon first, so they would have those cool little designs on them.
He was our professional egg turner. He did pretty good too.
By the time we were done we had 2 dozen beautifully colored Easter eggs for our hunt on Sunday morning!
Logan was happy to help us clean up.
