About how many Easter Eggs do you guys color/decorate and what do you end up using them for?

I'm always confused to what amount I should let the kids make. My son could decorate 3 dozen and keep gooing...but obviously I'm not going to use 3 dozen hard boiled eggs,lol.
So I'm thinking a dozen will do...maybe Ill throw a couple in the potato salad...maybe use some for deviled eggs..idk lol

  • We blow out a dozen for hand painting, a week ahead, and I make quiche with the blown out egg.

    Then the day before Easter we color 3 dozen hard boiled eggs. I use them for baked eggs for Easter morning, and then deviled eggs.

  • I do a dozen, then eat a lot of sliced egg in salad, egg salad, and just plain old hard-boiled eggs for a week.

  • one dozen..but i usually boil a few more, because i usually break a few..and you just can't dye a cracked egg without it looking like a dyed cracked egg!

  • 3 dozen because I have 3 kids. The kids and hubby will eat them, no problem, so it's no issue to make a bunch.

  • I do 1 dozen per child, with 8 children I do 8 dozen eggs. We have no problem eating them up. My kids love hard boiled eggs.

  • I did 26 eggs (supposed to be 28, but two broke before we could dye them...). We have 3 children.

    I don't know what I'm going to do with them afterwards.

  • Make Zesty Latin Devils
    Sour Cream
    egg yolk
    whir together in processor until creamy and pink.
    Load them into a plastic bag or decorator bag and pipe them back into the egg whites.
    Bacon and cheese eggs.
    Sour Cream
    Bacon bits
    Cheese, shredded
    Same process
