Ethan has been asking us for weeks to dye Easter eggs. Weeks, people! He asked me every day last week until I finally gave up in and boiled a bunch of eggs. He even insisted on helping me. He stared at that pot of water waiting patiently to see the bubbles in the water. A 4 year old obviously doesn’t understand that a watched pot doesn’t boil.

When the bubbles started to appear, he exclaimed “The eggs are done! They are chickens now!”

Um, not so much.

Since we were heading to my parents for dinner, we brought our hard boiled eggs and Easter egg dying kit with us. I knew my parents would love to dye eggs with the kids.

Once again, Ethan waited patiently {as patiently as a 4 year old can} while the tables dissolved. He gave them a little help by stirring the vinegar. Finally it was time to get down to dying!

Benny on the other hand needed a little help.

I had remembered seeing on Pinterest that you could use a whisk to help little hands dye Easter eggs. Since Pinterest has never really failed me, I decided to give it a try. It was a hit for Ben!

I think it really helped him enjoy the whole process. I thought for sure he would dye one egg and be done.
