How Old Is Too Old To Dye Easter Eggs?
Happy Saturday! It’s the day before Easter and it’s always been a family tradition since I was a little girl for us to gather around and dye Easter eggs. I can remember my mom and dad racing off to the market to grab us a few dozen of eggs, dye and some snacks to keep us happy during the process. As long as I can remember this has been a tradition that my entire family did every year for Easter.
Fast forward to 2018 and I now have a 22, 15 & 11 year-old sons and although my oldest isn’t really into dying Easter eggs he still joins us when the mood strikes him to join in on the fun. This year was no different than any other and of course our family tradition must go one. Do you have an Easter Tradition that your kids look forward to yearly?
Dying Easter eggs is as easy as 1-2-3 and the steps are super easy. All you need are the following:
- A dozen of eggs
- Distilled Vinegar
- Empty egg carton (after boiling eggs)
- PAAS Food Coloring
- Bowls (if you don’t purchase the PAAS Kit with bowls included)
- Stickers/Ribbons (Optional)
- Boil eggs for 35-40 minutes then set aside to cool.
- Take the PAAS Coloring Bowls and drop the tablet that corresponds with the cup color.
- Add vinegar to the cups and allow the tablets to dissolve.
- Add the eggs to the bowls and let the fun begin.
- Place the dyed eggs back into the empty carton for drying.
- Have Fun! Hide the eggs, Eat the eggs or place them in a basket as an Easter Centerpiece.
Honestly I look forward to this tradition every year. It brings back so many amazing memories that I had as a child growing up and celebrating Easter with my family. The boys have no idea but after church service on tomorrow we’re going to have a hunt. I love hiding eggs for them to find. I will warn you that whenever hiding real eggs be sure to remember where you hid them in the event that the kids don’t find them all. No one wants a stinky egg rotting away in a hiding spot.
