Yesterday I was talking to a sweet older lady in the neighborhood and I told her we were headed home to color eggs. She got a shocked look on her face and said "Do you think they will still be good by Sunday?" I then nonchalantly told her that we were not planning on eating them, we were going to roll them for awhile and then throw them at each other and have a grand ol' egg fight. When she picked her shocked jaw off of the front porch she smiled and wished me a Happy Easter. I am pretty sure she thinks I am crazy.
I read in a magazine how you can use a whisk to hold your eggs for coloring. We tried it out - it worked great. The girls could hold their eggs and swish and swash without losing them. The only trouble is that a long whisk handle is a little unbalanced and unsteady when left alone and propped on the side of the cup of color. Hence, the new green carpet in our home.
