We are back from our trip to Grandma and Papa's and already looking forward to this weekend and Easter. We celebrate Easter *big* in our family, so we are gearing up for the special celebration already.
Last year I skipped the Paas Easter Egg dye and we did our own eggs using regular old food coloring. It worked so much better, the dye was not blotchy and the eggs were beautiful. Here is our "recipe":
Sweet Pea Easter Eggs
1 c boiling water
2 t white vinegar
25 drops of food dye color (or combinations, see below)
Place the water and vinegar in a mug, add dye, mix well. Dip and dye your eggs...
orange=7 red drops, 18 yellow drops
lime/light green=23 yellow, 2 green
purple=17 red, 7 blue
turquoise=17 blue, 8 green
add 1 T of oil to each mug and swirl to make "tye die" eggs
use crayons to make designs
