We colored our Easter eggs on Saturday morning.....while most of us were still feeling alright. Little Monkey was sick, but he was determined to join in the fun anyhow! I was surprised to find that he didn't remember this at all from last year...he really had no clue what the cups and eggs were all about. :)
He was a little skeptical about the whole idea, at first....and really couldn't understand why we were dipping eggs in colorful (and therefore yummy) juice...
Until his first egg was finished. ;)
Peanut thought there must be some fantastic juice in those cups, too! My poor little guy really wanted to have a taste....so he had to stay in his high-chair. Fortunately, the stickers that came with the coloring-kit were almost as much fun for him, as all of the dipping and coloring going on at the table.
General and Rose had fun experimenting with colors and patterns...two dozen eggs were finished in no time at all.
We talked quite a bit about the symbol of the egg, and what it means to us on Easter. I just love how my older two are starting to grasp the deeper meanings behind the fun little things we do!
Can't wait to pull out my egg recipes, yum! :)
