Easter Egg Family Fun

Every year it’s hit-or-miss on whether or not we color eggs for – the ‘miss’ years are usually when I forget to hard boil a bunch of eggs for coloring.  This year I wanted to make sure our first in our new house that we definitely color eggs.

I boiled two-dozen eggs early Saturday morning, and while some of them were cooling in ice water, Blackspot decided to check them out and test the water for drinking:

One thing we don’t do with the festive is hide them for the hunt – I think the kids prefer finding plastic eggs containing candy hidden creatively rather than actual eggs hidden.  

And I don’t have to worry about if an egg or two are missed – after all, when I’m hiding eggs practically in the dark in the middle of the night, chances are I’m going to forget all the hiding places, and leaving hard boiled eggs scattered about is asking for stinky trouble in the future.  Ahem.

We decided to color the eggs right before dinner so it wouldn’t be terribly late, though everyone seemed to be tired after a long day of chasing bubbles around the backyard, and seemed to take this egg coloring business quite seriously:

Yes, there are still boxes needing to be unpacked.  It’s been a slow process, this ginormous move of ours.

After all the eggs were colored, the decorating commenced.  My first one Princess Nagger compared to Albert Einstein.  With pink glasses:

Everyone had creating funky characters with each of their eggs, until we had a crowd of two-dozen crazy characters lined up:

I especially love that Little Dude put two of his egg creation’s mustaches on upside down – gave his egg dudes extra character, don’t you think?  

Of course there was delicious (and in some cases colorful, thanks to some inadvertent cracks) salad for lunch the next day.  It’s become a for Easter lunch (since we do dinner at actual dinner time instead of mid-afternoon – that gives the hubby a chance to sneak in a nap).

Do you color eggs for Easter, kids or no kids?

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Stacy was surprised when Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance - deciding to forgo the career and stay home was a no-brainer. As if her hands weren't full enough, 8 years later she and her husband added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension (of crazy) to their family and even more sleepless nights. When she’s not refereeing kids, dogs and cats, she loves to write, hence the reason she decided to start her little blog, and because she never got a baby book to mark milestones, this was the next best thing. She also enjoys doing reviews and giveaways for products she or her family would willingly use and can stand behind. She loves to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, she takes on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. Her favorite, of course, is making her award winning wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway.

  1. I used to color eggs with my kids for Easter when they were younger. Looks like your kids had a good time. Love the egg creations they came up with.

  2. Coloring eggs was always so much fun for the whole family. I really miss doing stuff like this with the kids. Darn, if they don’t grow up too fast, though! Looks like gr8 fun and memories to last for a life time. 🙂

  3. I love your eggs!! Those are too cute! We color eggs every year and we still hide the actual eggs. Although I think the plastics eggs would be so much better. I really need to just do that.

  4. You’re eggs turned out super cute! We didn’t color eggs last year but I’m glad we did this year!

  5. No egg-coloring at my place… I stress too much over spilling the dye and “coloring” the carpet. Besides, with a whole mess of Faberge eggs less than a half mile away, I let others do the decoration, and I just enjoy the view.

    Happy WW!

  7. We didn’t color eggs this year, but we did make dough eggs, painted them and then hung them from a branch in a vase, aka, Easter Tree. I haven’t gotten around to posting it yet.

    I love the egg creatures,
