You know those cute pictures of young kids making complete messes. Yes, the ones with dye cups being spilled and freaking their auntie out,lol!
We always meet at Grandma’s (my mom) house to color eggs with our local cousins. I think it’s a fun tradition that is worth the mess! Over the year’s we have learned a few tips or tricks for Easter Egg coloring which I want to share with you.
1. Cook a couple dozen more eggs then you think you will need.
It seems that no matter how many eggs we have hard boiled that we never have enough. Our basic rule of thumb is a dozen eggs per each child.
2. Be sure to have aprons for all the children.
We luckily have acquired thick cloth aprons over the years. We even have enough to bring for my niece’s to wear.
3. Cover your surface with newspaper or plastic tablecloth.
You can almost always be sure that someone will spill a cup of dye. An accident will happen due to the excitement or the age of the children involved in the egg coloring.
4. Pick out fun accessories for your eggs.
We use white or clear crayons for designs but also have shrink wraps and stickers handy to decorate our eggs. Sometimes they are goofy cartoon characters and sometimes cutesy Spring designs.
So here goes to a super quick round-up of egg coloring cuties:
