I love the concept of dyeing Easter eggs. I ogle egg-dyeing articles like porn, bookmarking sites and fantasizing. Oh, yeah. This year I decided decoupage eggs were just the thing—after all, they’re adorable and look quick and easy, right? I just needed to buy some origami paper, different shapes of craft hole punches, Mod Podge, and sponge brushes.
I know you’re dying to see the results of our dyeing (HA!), so I took pictures.
Confession: I hate dyeing Easter eggs.

You’ll notice something slightly non-conformist made it into the back corner there. Big G spotted the shrink-wrappers included in the egg-dyeing kit and insisted we try one.
We even did a two-toned egg!
Actually, Little G did manage to foil our “one color only” plans during the shrink-wrap process. I was operating the hair dryer, which obviously means I was not on toddler watch. (I’m looking at you, Car.) Miraculously, no dye was spilled, and an actual two-toned egg appeared:
My favorite part of the evening? Car rubbing his hands together gleefully as he talked about how diabolical he felt. We didn’t show them how to be creative! Hee hee!
We’re the best parents ever.
