egg dying

Yesterday we got together with our pals, the Johnstons, for some Easter egg dying. They have never dyed Easter eggs before. (gasp!) So, we showed ’em how it’s done.

Isaac demonstrated his oh-so-funny dunk and splash. Over and over. No one else really needed towels nearby for spills. Isaac needed 3. ¬†And William, as you can see in the back, couldn’t help but sample some of that vinegar spiked colored goodness.

Joseph drew some impressive rabbits on his eggs before hand painting them.

And Andrew did the dip one side in one color the other side in another color.

But Margaret, girl after my own heart, used paints and stamps and bands (to give the eggs a white stripe) and glitter. Beautiful work.

These were the eggs we made it home with…and the ones we’ll be hiding for some light egg-hunting tomorrow.

About robyn

I stopped teaching Kindergarten in 2005 to become the mom of two crazy boys here in Brooklyn. At first I thought being a stay at home mom meant that I needed to pour all my time and energy directly into my sons, but I realized somewhere along the way that being a rockstar mom meant not only taking good care of my boys, but also taking good care of myself. And taking good care of myself means pursuing something creative...just about everyday. I started Made In Brooklyn to motivate myself in my creative goals as well as share my work with others and perhaps inspire them in their own creative journeys.

    I love your egg dipping and, I have to admit, I have never done egg dipping/painting either. Do you boil the eggs before hand and eat them later or do you just get the eggs purely for dying?
