Dyeing Easter Eggs

The Monday before Easter, St. Patrick's Day, we dyed Easter eggs for Family Home Evening.

Hyrum was fascinated by how the small tablets could change the color of the water. Brandon would have Hyrum guess what color the tablet would turn the water before he would put it in the cup. Hyrum thought it was pretty cool how the colored water would dye the easter eggs. Grandma B. sent a fun egg dying sports pack. Below was one of Hyrum's favorite eggs.
Eventhough Hyrum is big into "do it myself" phase, Brandon convinced Hyrum to let him help him when putting the eggs in and taking them out of the dye. Hyrum loved every minute of coloring the eggs with his dad.

We missed coloring Easter eggs this year and I am so bummed! Like Hyrum, I still LOVE the fact that magical water can color the eggs. How fun is that? Cute pics. Love the fort idea, too! Ingenius way to get him to clean his room!
