Coloring Easter eggs
Last night, the little one (well, mostly me) colored eggs for Easter. Some of my friends will boil up 4 dozen and color them but I only opted to do six eggs -- 4 white and 2 brown eggs as I'm not a fan of eating hard boiled eggs for weeks. I know from last year that using brown eggs will give them a nice jewel tone.

The year, I tried the eco-eggs easter egg coloring kit and I got good results (last year, I used PAAS). I let the eggs sit longer in the dye to get rich colors but I still think they could have used a longer time (more like 30 mins).

My husband and I wish we would have done another blue as they really looked like Robin eggs and I really like how the brown in the purple dye turned out pink.
As you can see, the kid was pretty excited about the eggs.
Looks like a Robin egg
Happy Easter! How are you celebrating? We'll be attending an Easter egg hunt, going to brunch and seeing the family that lives locally.
