Yes, you read that right – yesterday was Little Magoo’s big egg dying eggstraviganza! I should have known it was starting off badly, when I opened the box od PAAS, because come on, Easter just isn’t the same with those little tables that sizzle in the vinegar. I opened the box only to find three PAAS dye tables in there. Um, yeah, I should have known when the box only cost $0.99!
None-the-less, it was a blessing in disguise as I quickly whipped out my food coloring to make more egg dye. It was surprisingly simple and I have to say that the colors were much more rich and even than the PAAS tablets. I hate to say it but I may never go back to PAAS again! The horror!
Little Magoo was very eager to get his hands on those eggs.
He plopped them in the blue dye. As you can see it all over him. I cringed as I hear the egg crack as he dropped it in…and then proceeded to try to fit two more eggs in the mug. I knew the experience was going from bad to worse.
Onto the floor went most of the eggs. Oh, Mrs. Magoo, you should have known better.
We pushed on though…
We even made a special “Happy Birthday” egg for Mr. Magoo, since yesterday was his birthday. Little Magoo picked out purple dye for the color and I held the egg as he tried to put stickers on it.
Again, he got a hold of the egg and disaster ensued. Sorry, Daddy.
That is when I decided to call it a day. Little Magoo was not happy about this idea, he had more eggs to destroy.
Easter Egg Fail.
And just an FYI, Magic Erasers work wonders on getting egg dye off of skin.
P.S. I’d love to say I am going to get Easter photos done of the boys, I have ideas in mind, but with no help for toddler wrangling from Mr. Magoo and the gloomy dismal days, I don’t see it happening.
