It’s time to color eggs for Easter at our house. Last Easter, Nelson was still living with his dog parents, so it’s his first Easter with us. Mom asked Olivia to show him how to do it, but she said she didn’t want to, so I said I would do it. One of our best posts ever was the one where I was a puppy and Emma showed me how to dye Easter eggs.
Coloring eggs is pretty easy. We have our chicken to help out because she is great at making hard boiled eggs. Mom buys the color kits each year after Easter when they are super cheap. We always have at least one on hand when it is Easter time again. Since we have bought ones in the past with the dipping cups, we simply wash them each year and then save them.
To get started on your coloring process, you need to make hard boiled eggs. Our chicken will do seven at a time, so I load her up with eggs. I have an egg holder ready to take them out when they are done and put them in the colored water.
Nelson isn’t much for kitchen work I’m finding out. He would like to eat an egg rather than color it.
I have all five eggs in the color cups. Now we need to wait at least five minutes for them to turn color.
Once we determine the colors look good, we need to take them out of the water and put them in the cardboard drying station. Nelson is a bit impatient waiting to see what all happens next.
In a short amount of time we now have colored eggs. Funny that Olivia didn’t want to help, but the orange egg has the best color – go figure! Next year, I think Nelson will skip it when I ask him to color eggs for Easter.
If you have a basket, the eggs look quite festive in one. We usually put them in the fridge and eat them as soon as Mom let’s us. Have you or your dogs colored eggs for Easter this year?
