I bought an egg dying kit on clearance at Walmart three years ago for $.25. I haven't been brave enough to haul it out since. Our Wartburg Int'l Student, Andjelka, has fond memories of dying Easter eggs, so she volunteered to come over and help. She even brought a basket and stickers. :)
This mom was pretty nervous about egg dye in our brand new kitchen. I had a thick vinyl table cloth covered in a double layer of newspaper with paper towels on top. Plus vinyl art smocks for the kids. Luckily, we had no incidents other than a few fingertips. The kids got the hang of it by the second dozen eggs. All in all, it was a success. Now, who's going to help me eat all those eggs?!?
