Tealyn dying Easter eggs
In our family it is a tradition to buy Cascarones every Easter from local vendors selling from the street . Cascarones are dyed egg shells filled with confetti, used to crack over an unsuspecting family members head, after hunting for them.
SO MUCH FUN
This year instead of buying them we decided to make three dozens. We had been saving shells from breakfast eggs for about two months and it was time to get this done. We dyed the eggs in her bedroom on her table.
I was so excited for her that, I didn't stop and think about the mess it would make . I got some dye on my carpet that I had to remove with peroxide yes, peroxide imagine that ... Other than that she had so much fun making these. We did it in steps which took a total of three days. I think for a toddler this is the way to go. It makes it fun to do something each day and they look forward to the next step.
Here are the finished cascarones. We had a whole lot of Valentine tissue paper left over and I thought It would look cute with the hearts. She loved it... I can't wait for her to hunt for eggs this year. She has been playing with her basket and hiding plastic fishes in our back yard and pretends they are eggs and makes mommy or daddy (depending who's playing with her) hunt for them, then its our turn to hide them that game goes on forever....
Here she is Easter 2016 I wish I had a better picture.
Here is a picture of her and her dad he had just finished cracking a cascaron showering her with a confetti.
I wish you and your family a very blessed Easter Sunday
