Coloring Eggs

We colored eggs yesterday after church. We ran out of time on Saturday to do this before Easter. Sometimes that happens. They had fun anyway. This is typical of Hannah. She concentrates so hard on just about everything she does. Coloring eggs is no different. I love the smiley face. She does too. She puts a smiley face on almost everything that could have a face.

We colored eggs differently this year. We used a tie dye kit. The kids would add a few drops of color to the egg and then rub it around in the bag. Eli enlisted Aunt Ashley's help. He was a little unsure in the beginning. He got better the more eggs he did. I'm not sure if they are supposed to look like this or if it's the fact that I forgot to buy white eggs. We don't use white eggs and I didn't think to deviate from the norm. Overall they turned out well (except yellow, you couldn't see that) and they had fun doing it.
