Due to our kitchen remodel, we were a day late dying eggs. And we were about to say “eh, we’ll do it next year”. But I have to say, making it happen was soooooo worth it!!! The quality time! The fun! The memories! Priceless.
Hard boiled eggs, crayons, homemade egg dye, a few stickers from a friend… and vuala!!
Yesterday, before dad headed off to work, we were able to squeeze in a lil egg decorating, then “the Easter Bunny came during Thatch’s nap”, and when dad got home, it was go time!
It ended up being sooooooo much more fun than we anticipated!
They don’t reeeeaally know Easter has passed! 😉 If you haven’t done this with your little one yet… do it!! 👍🏻🎉🐰🥚
How to Make the Perfect Hard Boiled Egg
- Boil water in a pot
- Gently drop the eggs in
- Let it continue boiling for 3 seconds, then turn burner off
- Cover and let sit for 15 min
- Use lid to drain water (careful not to burn yourself with the steam)
- Run cold water over the eggs and drain again; repeat 2x
- You’re done!
How We Decorated Our Eggs with Crayons
- While eggs are still warm, color on them with normal wax crayons (not the washable kind)
How to Make the Egg Dye
*You may want to grab a bib or a smock for your little one for this one…
- Boil more water (however many cups to however many colors you want to do)
- Put 1 cup of boiling water into a clear glass cup (the dye stains otherwise)
- Add 2 tsp of Vinegar
- Add 15 drops of food coloring and stir mixture
- Place the eggs very gently into the dye mixture (use a spoon to help lower it in) and let it sit for as long as you want (a few min is plenty)
- Take out and place back into egg carton to dry
Once dry, apply stickers etc.
Then hide them and the fun begins!!! 🎉👍🏻🐰🥚🎉
