Since it was such a BEAUTIFUL weekend, and because I think egg dying is best outside… we dyed eggs this weekend! Of course, everyone and their Mama has been Pinning the baked hard boiled eggs tip! Preheat oven to 325, put eggs in, bake for 30 minutes and then plop in ice water bath. Dry. Done, done, done. (I like to say things three times when I’m excited!)
Nathan was really quick with dying his eggs. Autumn was slower because she liked to paint them (yes, I have a little tiny paint brush for painting the eggs). Autumn was SO into dying the eggs this year, I did not even really need to help her. Wow, she is growing up!

Autumn LOVES this stamping/paint brush kit. Look at that cute smile on her face.
Such a pretty girl.
The kids with their finished eggs. I really think I need to give them more then 12 eggs each next time… I am thinking 18 a piece may be nice. It seems they ran out and still wanted to keep going, and we had a nice little fight over Autumn’s last egg (Nathan wanted to dye it because he was finished with his but she still had one left she hadn’t started on yet.) Ahhh, kids.
Nathan’s finished eggs. The boy that actually loves to eat hard boiled eggs.
Autumn’s eggs. The girl that hates to eat hard boiled eggs, but is having fun carrying them around in her purse and stashing them all over my house. Yeah, either Nathan or me will sit on one or smell a rotten one in time to come. Sigh.
