Easter-fun

Desktop3

I have a friend.. and she had the wild crazy idea of getting our 9.5 kids together to color eggs.. Seems normal enough.. BUT NO.. we had to do it the OLD FASHION way..

I knew IT would be perfect, and so much fun. So after rescheduling (2) times we finally did it..TODAY! 🙂 good thing cause Easter is THIS weekend! She saw this article in a magazine

We armed our selfs with beets, purple cabbage, blue berries yellow onions, purple onions, turmeric (DIDNT EVEN KNOW WHAT THAT WAS), spinach & parsley, TONS of pots, white vinegar and 9 (YES NINE) kids!

Each color had to be mixed with water and vinegar.. We let boil for a long time (we started talking so who really knows ..maybe an hour??) We did drop a few non boiled yet eggs into the pots those were brighter colored in the end.

While the pots were boiling the kids were playing!

So we were able to dye beautiful eggs, and teach a science lesson AND have fun!? Without any yucky additives:)

levi loved the yellow/brown ones, judah the light green, and mine was the pretty tealish blue/green!

SOO pretty and very fun!
