We dyed Easter Eggs this weekend! It's a little bit early, but we wanted to do them with Auntie Abby and she's only here on the weekends and next weekend we're so busy with birthday parties and a wedding so we planned a head just a little bit and did them sooner rather than later. It's better this way because now Emmy will get to play and admire them for two weeks instead of just one!
Lilah sat in her high chair with us snacking on a crayon while she was coloring. I was afraid to even let her touch an egg since she's allergic to them in case one had a crack or if she were to smash one. When she's older and understands I don't think it'll be a problem and she'll be able to join in!!
When we were doing with the eggs and it was time to let them dry Emmy had a total meltdown. She was so sad and upset that our craft time had come to an end. I ended up getting her a handful of small smooth stones to dye in her cups. It actually stained them a bit...I was surprised. She gave up using her dipping tool and went in for them with her hand and by the end of it she had 100% blue avatar hands lol!! It's nearly all gone now from lots of hand washing and playing in the backyard.
They came out so pretty! I was worried that the eggs wouldn't go pretty colors since they are brown eggs but we got really pretty rich colors and this picture really doesn't do them justice on how pretty they really are! They also have glitter sparkles on them that doesn't really show up in the picture.
