Do you do this with your kids?

What age did you start this activity with them?

Is there certain tricks you have to get the colors brighter?

What do you do with the eggs afterwards?

I know we did it last year but I don't remember doing it the year before. I'm looking forward to doing it again this week. :) I bought a bunch of kits after Easter last year so we're ready! Not sure yet what I'll do with them. Probably make deviled eggs for myself. I've had egg salad once and liked it so I may try that if Andrea will tell me how to make it. ;)

We've always dyed eggs with the girls. The first year is more of a photo op, though! Lol.

The girls dyed eggs on Sunday, and I've already started using Maddie's. I've already had them in tossed salad, potato salad and egg salad sandwiches. I've never made deviled eggs, but I love eating them at parties. Do you have a recipe you wouldn't mind sharing?

My husband growing up would have one of his died eggs in his Easter basket.

I like egg salad in a tomato bowl- light and refreshing! I make some devilled eggs regular for the kids, with sweet pickle for my Mamaw(yuck!), and spicy ones for me and hubby. Also use them for salads and the kids like boiled eggs as snacks too!

I loved devil led eggs, I Seperate the egg from the yolk, smash the yolk up add a touch of sugar, a touch of salt, sweet relish, I eyeball it, then mayo. Mix, then taste.  Take a zip lock bag, and fill it, cut a corner, and wha laaaa

I do mayo, a touch of mustard, dill relish, salt and pepper mixed with the yolk. If I have it, I sprinkle paprika on top after filling the whites. I do the amounts by sight or taste.

We're coloring eggs today, we've done it every year one ofmy fav. things to do! A really enjoyed it last year and he's real excited cause he already got to do it at preschool on wednesday.  Hubby said his parents used to hide them with the easter egg hunt, never did that myself we always just ate them! But i really love egg salad, or I'll eat them just plain, A even likes that or putting them in salads.  Love deviled eggs too but don't know how to make them.  MIL usually makes them which is nice.
