Once I picked up the kids from camp, we dyed eggs. It brought back memories stirring the food coloring and vinegar with the hot water-- just like my Mom used to do-- before there were those fancy egg dying kits. The kids drew on the eggs with a white color crayon before dipping them.
Even Dennis had a fun time dipping the eggs.
Sveta was so excited when I told her that there might be three eggs a piece to dye! She was expecting only one!
Alex had fun dying his eggs! When I told him he could eat his first egg, he cracked it on the table and then took a huge bite of the egg--- shell and all! He didn't think anything of it until we told him to spit it out! What a crazy guy Caleb thought until I reminded him that he did something similar when he was Alex's age.
Mr. Independent wanted to peel his own egg.
He did a pretty good job. The yoke is what got him--- he tried to wash it down with water but just couldn't. Eventually he motioned to me that he wanted to spit it out which he did very politely into the napkin I was holding.
((Notice Dennis eating the egg yoke?)) Julia let me take her picture with her egg--- awwwe, what a cute little egg.
As I got ready to hit publish, Sveta and Jonny came to me asking if they could eat the last egg. Since this afternoon, the kids have polished off two dozen eggs!
