Another late night of dyeing – this year we were in rainbow PAAS land with tablespoons of white vinegar carefully measured out by Isak, who impressed his little sister into redundant “wow”s with his egg tinting abilities. They were on the psychedelic side by morning, speckled or two tone, but bright and cheerful and ready to share.

and have enjoyed it every year since. :)
We dyed our eggs a bit late last night, but it was fun, nonetheless. Nothing like dyeing eggs, quickly chowing down dinner and dessert and heading straight to bed to await the Easter Bunny. I don’t particularly like how every holiday has turned into that of a mascot, wjo brings candy and toys, but for my son, I’m playing along for as long as possible, because his imagination has always been so non-existant that it’s awesome that he still believes!
My mom’s birthday lands on Easter this year, so me and my kiddo designed a couple of Happy Birthday eggs for her. That was cool!
You can tell which pictures were taken first by the lack of xolor on the white shirts I layed down. Lol. I liked how we did that…plastic bags layed down on the table first, and then a few already-stained t-shirts over them. Worked great! He can now wear rainbow shirts if he wants.
We should definitely dye eggs just for fun during other times of the year. =] 17 months ago
We had a late night dyeing session Saturday night. The stores were plumb out of the kits, so we used a whole box of food coloring (when I was a kid I thought the bottles looked like tiny rainbow gnomes) and a pack of vinegar we were lucky to find in the fridge.
With our eggs and the basket of freshly found bounty at my parents house, we’re positively swimming in brightly colored eggs. I know what this coming week’s school and work snacks are going to be… 2 years ago

I’m vegan now, so I don’t think it was worth it :D
Look up factory farm hens. I mean, buy the plastic eggs but don’t buy cruel eggs just for fun on Easter… 3 years ago
We had a late night of eggerrific fun with the whole family. I thought we’d have duller eggs because of a lack of vinegar, but they’re bright and lovely – especially the blue – I half expect a big fat robin to come hopping out. At the tail end we mixed the blue and pink together and made a marvelous periwinkle.
We also took a crack at those shrinky egg wrap things, so there are a few that are resplendent with a shiny yoda or boba fett, but I’m an old-school egg dyer at heart.
Now we’re off to my parents house for Easter brunch, a selection coloured eggs in tow. Have a very happy Easter everyone! 4 years ago
