4 adults + 12 eggs = hours of entertainment

If you are wondering how to get boys excited about dying Easter eggs, just add fire...

I'll admit, after watching a couple crafty people and an amazing sister-in-law dye eggs with produce and other craziness, I felt like the box of dye tablets in my kitchen had just gone down in coolness factor... But I have to admit, it turned quite entertaining!



The boys were distracted playing a game, until Tiffanie busted out the candles and matches, with the brilliant idea of using the candle wax to decorate the egg before applying the dye. I'm telling you, it is a true principle. You add playing with fire to the equation, and the men will come.



And of course, since we wouldn't want to waste any of the fabulous supplies from our $1 dye tablet kit, we also made good use of festive stickers... And I'm pretty sure the husbands just loved having those on their faces. (we kept putting the stickers on them, much to their dismay, until it turned into a contest between the two of them and then they couldn't get them on there fast enough!)



The Result: 12 eggs & a hilarious Easter Egg Hunt

Beautimous eggs! We had an easter egg hunt with Jason's family in Star Valley Wyoming, and Jason found the one with $100 in it. Of course his brother-in-law hid them and no one but Jason could have climbed the nearly 50 feet up the steel frame of the shed we were in to find that egg. Not that I mind however, because we get to share the winnings :)
