Our Easter weekend began on Friday night when we colored eggs. During a cold January day I came across a pin on Pinterest that used Kool-Aid to dye Easter eggs. I pinned it and was determined to try it. Well, the week of Easter came and I felt a little lazy so on Thursday I headed to the store to buy the Paas egg dying kit. They were completely sold out. It's too much work to strap kids in and out of carseats while going from store to store to find one item. So, I grabbed some Kool-Aid packets and called it good enough.
The Kool-Aid worked great! Just mix a packet with about 2/3 cup of water and voila...instant color.
No nasty smelling vinegar.
No more waiting on the tablets to dissolve while trying to remain patient as the kids ask you over and over if it is time to start yet.
I added a little bit of orange to the yellow and a little blue raspberry to the purple per the pinners suggestion. Blue was my favorite color of them all!
Mel preferred to dunk hers immediately.
B preferred to draw on hers first...
Since we didn't have the kit, we didn't have the egg dunking tool...for lack of a better word. Brad whipped one up from a clothes hanger. He's handy like that! ;0)
Saturday was the egg hunt at our church. This was the first time in 3 years that it hasn't been raining. When it rains, they have it inside and that makes things crazy!
B and Mel are in different age groups so Brad always goes with Mel. Those two are inseparable!
I stick with B. She is in the blue sweatshirt...
B was up so early that I didn't even get to see her go through her goodies. I was pretty disappointed, but she tried to reenact it.
