A new use for tie-dye
Yesterday Isaac and I dyed Easter eggs, a process that has gotten a lot more complicated since I used to do it with the previous generation. His mom brought over a kit called "Tie-Dyed Easter Eggs," and I was eager to see what that entailed.
It was beautifully dyed, with a few white areas and a lot of pleasant merging of colors. But we decided, after the first egg, that the plastic box was unnecessary. For subsequent eggs we just wrapped the wet fabric around the egg and dropped the dye directly onto the fabric, held in hand.
A few times Isaac decided to squirt dye onto the egg and rub it around between his palms. That worked too.
