    DS is 13 and "too cool" to dye eggs. But I know he really wants to!

    This will make it a little more fun and artsy.

    Thanks!

    The 3rd time I looked at the website, I noticed the note that said the colors were from the McCormick food colors website. Then I went there. There's a LOT of stuff there for kid crafts, not only the eggs, but DIY water colors, sidewalk chalk, and a kind of silly putty too!

    See here:
    http://www.mccormick.com

    put "crafts" in the search box. Also I was interested to see the $3 or less meals link too, but I haven't looked at THAT yet!

    We came across this last year and boy were we excited. The kits never gave me the quality that I wanted in the eggs. The food coloring makes the eggs look great!!!

    For the extra frugal.... No need for dye...
    Press small flowers or leaves against the eggs and hold them firmly in place with cloth strips and or string.
    Then boil them in water with lots of onion peel.
    Very rustic...
    PS Don't use brown eggs.

    I actually have an Easter blog post, where I highlight some homemade Easter egg dye methods and the like. I'll be sure to add this in with it too!
