Egg Coloring With the Grandson

Today we took care of Grandson while his mommy and daddy moved some things in their home. We had the greatest time!

We colored eggs.

I baked the eggs instead of boiling, and it worked out great. I put the eggs in a mini-muffin pan, turned the oven on 325 and baked them for 30 minutes. Then I carefully put them in ice water and they were ready to color. I only broke one egg that had a thinner shell. It peeled easily, even though it was rather fresh. I think I'll bake the eggs from now on, especially when there are a lot to hard boil.

I love the way that the brown and blue-green eggs take a color. I tried to do something fancy with leaves and rubber bands, but I didn't have enough rubber bands to keep the leaves next to the egg. But we had fun anyway.
