Here's another tip. Don't tell your five year old girl about dying eggs until you get home and are ready to do it. When we mentioned it, she demanded that we start boiling the eggs in the van, on the ride home. When we did get home, we tormented her even more by boiling the eggs more than ten seconds and allowing them time to cool.
We usually get the cheap Paas tablets, line up the vinegar filled coffee cups and start dunking. This year we upgraded to the Star Wars Ultimate Jedi Egg Decorating Kit. The kit included plastic Star Wars sleeves to shrink around the egg. The kit also includes a plastic C3PO mask.
The kids had their plan of egg attack ready. The yellow egg would be C3PO, the green is Yoda, red is Darth Maul and we were going to dump all the colors together at the end to make a black Darth Vader egg.
Here are some of our creations. The Darth Vader black egg didn't really work, so he got dyed pink instead.
Happy Easter to all.
