Easter weekend is here and a mini Spring break for H will begin today. (Thanks to all those snow days we had.) As I was shopping for the kids' Easter basket goodies I came across this cool product. Not sure if you've seen these....Plastic Decorating Eggs.
This year we'll be doing some experimenting... Kool-Aid (like Zi did last year with her kids here) vs. color tablets and hard boiled eggs vs. plastic eggs.
Check out our results.
As you can see the difference in the color saturation with the same dye.
(Plastic eggs on top and real eggs on bottom)
SATURATED COLORS: Color tablets with vinegar
PASTELS: Color tablets in water or plastic eggs
BRIGHT COLORS: Kool-Aid Cherry & Orange (egg 1 & 2, bottom left)
SMELL/SCENT: Kool-Aid or color tablets with lemon juice
REAL EGG: You can get more saturated colored eggs.
PLASTIC EGG: Great for kids to use since they can dye eggs to their hearts content, no food wasted and no cracked eggs. Plus you can save these for decorating next year or just recycle them.
How do you dye or decorate Easter eggs? Do you have an Easter Tradition?
Have a Happy & Blessed Easter!
