One of my new favorite techniques is tie-dye eggs. You take a vinegar-dampened paper towel, wrap it around the egg, and drip food coloring on it. While I really like the results, prepare for lots of hand washing unless you want the people at church to look at your hands funny when it’s the shake-a-hand greeting time.
One carryover technique from last year was using hot glue on the egg before dipping it. Sam had the brilliant idea of using hot glue on his drawn-on eyes before dying.
Only one problem. Sometimes the hot glue likes to take some egg shell with it. (WARNING: The following pictures may be graphic in nature.)
And I really wasn’t expecting what he’d do next:
Even the other eggs were asking each other: “Who invited that guy?”
And, thanks to a learning experience where hard-boiled eggs were hidden inside too carefully and some grandparents who will remain unnamed suffered horrible awful smells for months until the eggs in question were finally found, the Easter Bunny always accepts our request to hide the plastic eggs inside and the hard-boiled once outdoors.
Good call, Bunny. Good call.
