coloring eggs

Friday afternoon at the store we bought a rainbow egg-coloring kit and some eggs. Somehow between then and Saturday morning I lost the kit and we ended up doing it the old fashioned way.

I had no regular vinegar and I was a little worried the cider vinegar I had would affect the colors but happily it did not. Husband surprised us all by remembering the old rubber-band trick for creating stripes.

Miss D turns out to have a fondness for boiled eggs and has eaten FOUR (!) within the past two days. Which is lucky as neither Husband and I can stand them.

Based on Miss D's spotless face and hands, I'd say you had a cleaner time of it than we did. Charlie enjoyed redipping the eggs in different colors by hand and then scooping them out with the scooper and a helping hand. So we had lots of green dye on hands and face.
