Pretty much the only thing I learned when I went to Catholic school in 8th grade was that there are “Chreasters”. Have you heard of these people? For those that don’t know, a Chreaster is a person that only goes to church on Christmas and Easter. I thought it was hilarious when I learned that. And actually, I don’t even count as a Chreaster because I don’t go to church ever…unless someone gets married or dies.
I think that just makes me a regular sinner. Oh well. I do enjoy celebrating both holidays because it’s fun to decorate a tree…
and both holidays involve eating a ton of food. Count me in.
Almost every year, I decorate Easter eggs. We eat a lot of hard boiled eggs in our house so it’s fun to open the fridge and see pretty eggs for a change.
This year I saw the box for “Majestic Eggs” and knew I had to try them out.
Did I invite a bunch of kids over to help me out? No. Did I let G help me? Umm, no.
This was a project for CTW while I watched Bridesmaids for the 30th time. And it was totally easy and took no time. I boiled some eggs in the morning.
Opened the Majestic Eggs box and laid everything out.
I don’t know if you can tell, but I got 5 colors and only 4 plastic baggies. Someone screwed up on the assembly line. Fortunately, I’m pretty resourceful and used a sandwich bag for the 5th color. All you have to do is put an egg in the bag and pour some color on it.
Then spread the color all over the egg.
Take the egg out and let it dry. It takes practically no time, which is nice. BUT, the color isn’t very dark, which made me a little sad.
I will probably make the more traditional “leave your eggs in dye for 14 hours so they are really dark” type of Easter eggs later, but these were fun to try out.
Are you going to dye eggs this year?
