Dyeing Easter Eggs
While home for Easter, we failed at finding an egg hunt. Instead we decided to dye Easter eggs. Mom happened to have a set of dye in her cabinets.
The date on the bottom of the Paas box read 1991. We like retro, so it was perfect. Apparently, we haven’t dyed Easter eggs in twenty years. So I was excited.
Can you make out the date there on the bottom paragraph of the box?
Lucy was really into the orange color, which she called Ernie because Ernie is orange. Of course. And it was the closest color to her.
She really studied the process.
Grams did a great job showing her how it works.

Waiting… can I say patiently here?
Of course if a crayon appears, I must draw Ernie.
