Easter Egg Dyeing

Growing up in England…I have no recollection of dyeing Easter eggs. I remember eating chocolate. Giving my sister a Cadbury’s chocolate egg, but not dyeing Easter eggs. So perhaps it is an American tradition. We started dyeing Easter eggs when my daughter was 4 months old. She’s now 13 and we’re still doing it.

As I talked to my husband on the phone this morning, we both realized that we have eggs but not dyeing kit. A trip to CVS was all we needed. Now we have the kit, the eggs purchased on a previous grocery trip, and a couple of chocolate bunnies.

Which brings me to “what did you give up for Lent?” I gave up chocolate…it was supposed to be everything chocolate, but became just chocolate candy. So, my children had better hang on to their Easter bunnies because come Easter Sunday I will be devouring some kind of chocolate!

    Isn’t dying Easter eggs the best! I have done it for as far back as I can remember. Took a short break from it before children, but started up again once my first son was born.

    I picked up a dye kit a few days ago at CVS. Prices are up on the dye kits this year over last year but really it is one of the last holiday traditions that doesn’t cost a fortune. Happy Easter all…
