  • No, dd is too little yet, but I will when she is older. Yes, put them in the fridge.

  • Yeah. It would be fine to do it tonight. Last year we did ours during the week because we were so busy. They were fine on Sunday.

  • YES! refrigerate the eggs. Just because they are colored doesn't make them any less of an egg. Eggs are one of the main causes of food poisoning. After your kids are done finding them refrigerate them again too.

  • We did ours yesterday. They're hard boiled and I refrigerate them after we color them...I'm sure we'll just toss them though. Sometimes I make I make egg salad or deviled eggs with them, but since it will be several days since they've been cooked, I probably wont this time.
