dinosaur eggs

how totally cool are these??
SO FUN for hard boiled eggs and EASTER!
(which is fast approaching and i'm no where NEAR ready for it!)

we had to try it...

hard boil some eggs and cool.
fill some cups with water
add food coloring

i like the variety and vibrancy you can get from Wilton

crackle those eggs!
tap lightly on the counter to get it started
then gently press all over, as much or as little as you like

drop em in the colored water!
put all the cups in the fridge overnight to let the food coloring do it's thing
(and keep your eggs from going yucky)
we put ours on a small tray for better stability/possible water spillage

in the morning, remove the eggs from the cups
rinse with water
(or risk colored fingers!)


take the shells off and see what's hidden underneath!

how fun, huh?? :)
my girls loved getting involved and helping out
the anticipation of waiting overnight to see how they turned out was fun for them too

a different take on coloring easter eggs!
and a good excuse to have deviled eggs or egg salad sandwiches!
