A Splash of Color

The Saturday before Easter has traditionally been our family's day to color eggs. Despite our best parental efforts to maintain order and cleanliness, it often turns out a bit messy. The boys often lack patience to keep the eggs in the color for very long, and before the dye has a chance to dry, they are eager to eat the eggs. It's amazing how something that stinks up my kitchen could be so appetizing!

Your eggs turned out so vibrant! What kind of dye did you use! It always seems that there aren't enough eggs to color. Harrison was so disappointed when we we done!

So bright and beautiful! very refreshing compared to the usual pastels... I always prefer bolder colors to pastels. Nice work!
