No eggs this easter

Did anyone else (NOT) dye easter eggs? I didn't because eggs are just too much money. My kids are 9 ♥ 12♥ 13♥ 15♥ I just got them a small basket and put some candies in. No toys. I told them this is a gift for remembering our savior, and doing your best for the family.

  • We have never dyed eggs until this year more because of the mess. We always have 12 boiled and 12 raw eggs in the house anyway and I got some dye form the dollar store. Baskets are small every year because Easter to mus is not a huge gift giving holiday.

  • holding easter egg


    I didn't! I don't have any kids at home though and I can't eat eggs.... so, it's pretty tough to die "egg whites". LOL!

  • i found some things that looked like qtips that had dye inside it @ walmart. they broke the tip and just colored the egg. it was easy and mess free. plus it was less thean a dollar. i have 3 stepkids so we got the little 6pk of eggs they each got 2, and hid the plastic ones.

  • We didn't, but only because I don't like the thought of dye in the hands of my 2 year old!! Scary lol. Maybe next year...or the year after!

  • We boiled them and deviled them but didn't dye them. Every year when we have done this in the past we end up throwing out a couple dozen eggs. This year I only made a dozen of them and we only have 3 left after dinner.

  • We almost didn't dye eggs. It was late afternoon before we got around to it. It doesn't seem as much fun as it used to.
