With Easter fast approaching there’s bound to be lots of egg dyeing going on so here’s a quick tip for egg dyeing I came across on Pinterest that I thought you might enjoy! For those of you with kids out there it comes from a site called Parent Hacks and you will want to visit this site for sure! I love their tag line at the top of the page…”We’ve got forehead-smackingly smart tips, that help you simplify family life, save money and have fun. Hacks come from parents just like you. Because you’re an expert. You’re a Parenthacker.” Once I read that I was hooked! 🙂 Anyway tons of great tips there from other brilliant parents just like us was my point, go check ’em out! Here’s one from a gal named Leah on dyeing Easter eggs in her muffin tins which is why I’m sharing it here with you all today!! Gotta show the muffin tin love 😉
Leah says this about her egg dyeing experience…
“A large muffin baking pan works really well for egg dyeing. I have two and was able to use one for dyeing and one for drying dyed eggs before putting them back in the carton. The 3 tablespoons of water fits well in a cup (err on the scant side; a couple overflowed when I dropped eggs in), and it’s nice to be able to use all 12 dye tablets in a single container.”
I suggest you prepare for the mess of egg dyeing by putting down newspaper or better yet plastic table cloths if you’ve got ’em or layer up and do both lol! 🙂 Who has ever heard of neat egg dyeing? Don’t forget your clothing, protect it with an apron/ smock or wear old clothes that don’t mind the stains 🙂 However you do it have fun and be creative and enjoy this special time with your children and family! Happy Egg Dyeing everyone!!
