Egg-citement!

 
 The boys colored Easter eggs over the weekend.
 
We use plastic eggs and acrylic paint, but they always turn out
so pretty...and you never need to worry about spoilage!
Of course, you can do this with real eggs, too.  Just crumple up
some aluminum foil, drop in a little acrylic paint and scrunch it
up around the egg.  (No staining like the dyes.)
P.S.  I get the white plastic eggs at Hobby Lobby.

Brilliant idea! Only one of us actually eats the real eggs we dye. This would solve that problem. I love the colors on these.
