Easter is just around the corner and my kids are excited to attend the many community Easter egg hunts in our area. Sure, I could run to the store and grab a few packs of pre-filled eggs to donate but this defeats the purpose of the classic Easter egg hunts I remember as a child.
We will certainly have plastic eggs filled with candy but I want to include real eggs! I want my kids to have the experiences I had as a child that included boiling eggs, dying them and then being able to enjoy them. I remember the pride I felt as a kid when my beautifully dyed eggs were all dry and ready the night before for the Easter bunny.
There are so many products on the shelves these days that make it easy for little hands to dye Easter eggs. I’ve tried many of them in the past and always seem to come back to family traditions which include our old plastic shower curtain used as a floor mat for crafts, a few small plastic cups, white vinegar, Kool-Aid packs of our favorite flavors, a plastic spoon and of course real eggs!
