This year we had my mom and my younger sister along, as well as my brother, his wife (who is pregnant with twins!!), and their adorable little man, Lincoln. It was nice for the kids to spend some time with their Grandma, aunts, uncle, and cousin.
My favorite thing that we tried this year was taking some eggs that were still very hot from being hard boiled. While using a rag to hold onto the eggs, because they really are hot, draw on the egg with a crayon. The heat melts the crayon as draw, creating rich swaths of color. Afterward, we put the eggs into some of the egg dye. It was definitely an egg coloring technique that is best for older kids and adults, but a lot of fun. It ends up looking something like this...of course, your design would be different, but you get the idea.All in all, we colored and decorated roughly five dozen eggs this year. Good thing that my kids like to eat hard-boiled eggs.
