Weekly Wrap Up Linky – Dyed Eggs for Easter

So, I was brave and decided that hard boiled eggs and coloured water in mini shot glasses little cups was a brilliant idea for Easter craft with a three year old. It wasn’t a terrible flop but due to Dora’s enthusiasm with the coloured dyes, they all ended up looking the same muddy green which was a mix of all the colours.

To do the egg dyeing, I half filled the little cups with water, 1/2 teaspoon of white vinegar and then added a few drops of food colouring. Then I used some cheap little plastic bowls with lids to put the egg and a bit of dye into. Once the lid was on, Dora gave it a good mix about. We had one egg casualty that was tossed around a little too much.

Using little containers with lids to swirl the eggs around in the dye, was a nice mess-minimising idea. Next time we do this, I’ll also limit the colours to just a couple per egg.

Dora had the most fun when peeling and then eating the eggs for dinner.
