Katie just turned three last month, and I was excited to finally decorate Easter eggs with her this year! I haven’t attempted it in previous years since she was pretty little, but this year, she was super excited about doing it and was able to participate enough to make it a fun project!
We got ourselves set up with newspapers on the table, our PAAS dyeing kit, and Heinz vinegar to mix the dyes! I had told Katie earlier in the day that we were going to decorate eggs after her nap time, and she was so thrilled and excited, that I am pretty certain she didn’t actually sleep during any of her nap time. When I came to get her up, the first thing she squealed was, “Can we do the eggs now?!”
She’d been carrying around the kit the last couple days begging to open it, so when I let her loose, she could hardly contain herself. (I started to feel a little guilty about not doing more craft projects with this eager little person!)
We’ve been saving the greenish-white eggs from our one white hen for a few days for this project…all our other hens lay brown eggs, which don’t work quite as well for dyeing, particularly with certain colors.
PAAS has a new “Egg Decorator” app for your iPads to entertain your little ones (or even yourself!)
For every egg dyed on this app, PAAS is donating $1 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, so get to having some fun and helping a worthy cause!
