This year I made egg dye. It didn't dye the eggs as brightly as the store bought boxes. I'll have to experiment again with it next year. The colors looked pretty in the water but they didn't transfer as strongly, quickly as the tablets. The kids enjoyed the process and they didn't remember to miss the other color options.
Ridge, intent on making this egg turn as green as possible on one side.

Laine loved making her pink and purple eggs.
Sommer insisted on stirring as many eggs as possible in her bowl. She was delighted with this activity. She also banged a few eggs on the table, trying to crack them like when we make cookies. Just one of the gang.
I forgot to include these eggs in the actual easter egg hunt, but they were not missed at all. Our hunt took about 5 minutes and it was indoors. The boys searched the living room and the girls had hidden treasures in their own room. And that was that.
