Easter is on the way, meaning your kids (and some husbands!) are going to want to paint and color everything in sight!
When I say I try and keep food coloring away from Maddie, it’s an understatement!
I hide it like that Easter egg no one can find until you have to follow the smell (it always happens to at least one!), because I know as soon as she gets her hands on one of those tiny little bottles, I’m going to have a lot of explaining to do!
“Yes sir, I know my child’s arm is blue”.
“Thank you Ma’am, I was unaware her fingers are red”.
“Yes, I know my daughter’s face is tie dyed, it’s the new big ‘thing'”.
So, to avoid all of those conversations, we use Kool-Aid!
Not only do you get a bright color from using Kool-Aid to dye Easter eggs, but it’s super cheap, and the smell just makes you want to eat the air! Delish!
QUICK TIP: “Hard Boil” your eggs in the oven for an easy way to prepare them in bulk! Simply place each egg in the well of a muffin tin, and bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes, then put in ice water for 10 minutes to cool!
To keep them off of the table and in one spot, we use toilet paper/paper towel rolls as egg holders, just slice them up into 1 inch circles!
