I've been dyeing Easter eggs with the now-ten-year-old for several years. We missed last year, at the height of the first surge of coronavirus, and that also meant that the now-three-year-old missed her first chance to participate. So it was especially good to be all together again, vaccinated and ventilated, this year.
The plan this year was to immerse the eggs only partway in the dye, then in a subsequent bath, spin the egg so the colors overlap and blend in pretty ovals.
It worked out very well.
A few of the eggs even had special effects, for reasons that we couldn't figure out. Maybe because the tablets were still fizzing when the egg went in? And how about that yin/yang curve on the green-and-yellow egg?
