Wednesday we did an awesomely fun art/holiday/science project…natural egg dyes. I have wanted to do this forever. The beautiful natural shades looking ever so elegant on my Pinterest boards compared to our vividly electric blue from our Paas kits. We went for it this year. Let me warn you though, this is not a project for the faint of heart. I felt like I could have used a stiff drink after all this, but it was so worth it. At one point, all four burners were occupied by bubbling fruits and veggies, there were Cheerios all over the floor, grape juice spilled down the cabinets, and a pile of cracked eggs quickly accumulating. I would suggest you put on your organized pants this day…a pair that were definitely in my ironing pile on Wednesday, and have things set up before the project starts. It is fun for the kids to make the dyes too, but maybe have things chopped ahead of time. Either way, we got some pretty fabulous eggs….
