It all started with my Easter graphic.
The crisp colors of rainbow dyed eggs in this Easter greeting reminded me of Easters past, dying eggs with McCormick food and Easter Egg dye along with a spoonful of vinegar and having an old fashioned egg hunt in the backyard.
The girls have all but outgrown the tradition of finding Easter Eggs, but I wanted ONE more memory with the youngest granddaughter.
I got on Pinterest looking for creative ways to dye eggs. There was a shaving cream approach, a baking soda method, glitter eggs, decoupage eggs, silk tie dyed eggs, washi tape eggs, etc. There were many varieties, and I experimented with a couple of options until I resorted to the tried and true method; the one I remembered from childhood, McCormick dye mentioned above. Fortunately there was a packet in the pantry, which saved a return trip to the store.
So, in combination of plastic eggs filled with candy and a few dyed and decoupaged hard boiled eggs for munching mid-afternoon, the Easter Hunt is planned. We'll be hiding eggs on the porch overlooking the golf course. Potted plants and overturned pots will make hiding and finding eggs quick and easy!
Whatever you do to celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful and Blessed Easter.
