Easter's On Its Way
Today we colored eggs. I like to do it the basic, old-fashioned way: food coloring with vinegar and boiling water. I've never used a Paas kit and I have no inclination to. This year we got slightly adventurous and tried putting rubber bands on a couple of the eggs.
But mostly, it's just a pleasure for kids to set the eggs in the cups of colored water and baste them and turn them until they reach the desired color.
Sometimes it's fun to make them two-toned:
However you do it, and even if it's a little messy, coloring eggs is so fun.
Thanks to Jo for being our photographer today!
