Welcome to Tip Tuesday! Where I plan on sharing a new tip with you each week. Something that will save a little time and generally is done on the cheap!
Valentine’s Day is over and that means we are moving onto Easter. It won’t be long and Easter will be upon us. What comes with Easter? Dying off eggs. Really this is of course my favorite part of this holiday. Who is ready to dye Easter eggs?
While the dying of the Easter Eggs may be my favorite part (outside of the family time) it does tend to stress me out a lot from the mess. I mean I want to be that mom that just doesn’t care but I do care. A LOT!
My best friend has 4 boys, very rambunctious boys and she let me in on this little tip of how she dyes Easter eggs with her younger boys. She uses a whisk so the little ones can actually hold onto the egg. Brilliant right?
The egg will slide into the whisk easily and it doesn’t slide out without a little effort. The handle is big enough that they actually have something to hold onto and it all fits perfectly into a coffee cup. The whisk prevents the guaranteed “hand crush” you get with the little kids dropping the egg into the coffee cup or the crush it receives as it’s getting pulled out of the coffee cup.
How do you keep the mess of dying Easter eggs contained? Does the mess not bother you?
