Easter Egg Coloring!!!

Well we thought it would be fun to try something different than
the traditional dip and color method. That may have been a big leap for this almost 4 year old to tackle and we didn't even attempt letting Ethan try, he will be just fine finding them tomorrow...Oh well we had fun and the eggs look cool.
Okay so the idea is to take and egg and put it in these plastic baggies. Then you take a couple drops of dye and drop it on the egg. Once its there you use the baggy to smoosh around the color. You keep doing this with the other colors until the entire egg is covered. And then you let it dry. Jocelyn had the right idea but I think the variety of colors proved to be a bit tempting as she kept mixing all the colors. Not to metion the fact that she got dye everywhere you can imagine.

Okay and the finish product after numerous baggies and several sprays of windex to get the dye off the countertop. Not to shabby if i do say so myself, Jocelyn did a great job and really enjoyed smooshing all the colors in the baggies..her's are the more colorful eggs. Yeah I know the mommy is boring.

Now for the best part, at least the part that Jocelyn loves the best...clean up time (ie an excuse to play in the water). Jocelyn was doing so good just washing her hands and then the bubbles came. When I cam back to check on her and see what she was up too she replied to me "that I need to shave like Daddy". Very very cute to say the least, she was putting all the suds on her chin. After a good oh I don't know 15 minutes of washing her hands I finally had to take her out of the bathroom and clean up the soap sud mess and toss the bottle of hand soap she had used completely. Oh the joys of an independent girl :)
