easter eggs {our first egg dying experience}

 Levi was super excited about dying eggs. 
This is the first year we have attempted egg dying.

I tried really hard to sneak out and set everything up while he was playing outside...but he caught me. 

 He was pretty patient...for a two year old. 
Except that little hand of his kept sneaking into the egg bowl.

 "My dye this egg, Mama?"

 He only broke a few eggs before we started.
Not bad. 
Griffin would have joined him in stealing eggs but his little hands couldn't reach that far.

 Say cheese, cute little boys.

 It was finally time to start and Levi started grabbing eggs as fast as his little hands could.

 I tried to show him how to drop the eggs carefully but he preferred to throw them in and make a big splash. 
A few more eggs were broken in the process.

 Once he had an egg in each color he got to stir them.

 He stirred and stirred.

 After about ten minutes two seconds he was pretty sure his eggs were done.

 I talked him into stirring a little longer.

 The whole time he kept saying, "Done now, Mama?"

 Griffin was almost as impatient as his brother. 
He wanted to touch everything so badly.
Next year you can help too, baby boy.

We managed to keep the eggs in the cups long enough to get a little color on them.
I think they turned out pretty great.
And Levi was so proud.

I love this! I can't wait to do this next year with my little boy. He's one right now and in a throwing EVERYTHING phase, so I think I'm going to keep him away from eggs a little longer :) Your boys are precious!

Gorgeous pics. Well done SuperMum for making it happen. In my 8 years of parenting egg dying/blowing/painting/anything is yet to happen :(

How fun! I've yet to try this with my boys, but you've inspired me. I'm thinking we'll do it for sure next year when I have a 4 year old and 1.5 year old. That should be really fun! Happy Easter!!

Fun! We colored eggs with our little guy (2 months younger than Levi) last year, and he loved it. I am excited to do it again with him this year. :)

Awesome pictures!! When my children were little I always hard boiled the eggs and then dyed them. The next day we had potato salad with the colored eggs. It looked pretty cool and my boys loved it. :)

Such a boy! Actually boys. They are so precious. You are a brave momma to do this such a little guy! Cudos! I'm sure I NEVER did this with boys at such a young age. You are a memory-maker, for sure!
