    Colouring Easter Eggs Question

    So, tomorrow I am going to colour Easter eggs with the kids I watch. I am wondering if I should boil the eggs tonight or wait till I get to their house tomorrow.

    I don't think it matters I think they should be cool, though There should be directions on the egg dye box,
    Have fun!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Do it tonight at your leisure.

    Why do it with a bunch of anxious kids waiting around???

    Have fun!

    Do them before so they are nice and cool. After you have colored the eggs and they have dried, try rubbing them with just a bit of vegetable oil. It makes them really shiny and pretty!

    Re: Colouring Easter Eggs Question

    I looked for directions and all it talked about (at least on the box I have) is the different things you can use with the colours.
    I haven't coloured eggs in yrs (they didn't really do it like we do here overseas)! I am excited!!

    We used to boil them right before we dyed them. They were warm and smelled of vinegar.

    But I agree that you should do them ahead of time if you have time.

    if you want 'fancy' eggs..like for a table setting... boil the eggs *not the ones you want to dye* in a big pot filled with lots and lots of onion skins...the paper part of the onion. they come out looking amber/marbled..they're gorgeous!
