To dye or not to dye Ester eggs- that is the question! I’ve always personally dreaded dying Easter eggs, although my children seem to have enjoyed it. First of all, boiling eggs. Yes- seems easy and straight-forward enough. However, even with an egg timer, I’m constantly wondering if they are done enough. I often boil the water too long, and an egg breaks, which creates a bit of a mess. Then there’s the inevitable ‘oops’ as at least one egg rolls off the counter onto the floor. Then, after the fun and the kids are long gone, the mess is cleaned up, and the eggs are safely put away in the refrigerator, the reality sets in. I am going to be eating AND smelling boiled eggs for the next month!
Or- I can choose an alternative called eggnots. Eggnots is a dyeable ceramic replacement for traditional Easter eggs. This is a great alternative for vegan families and for kids with egg allergies. I love the fact that they are ceramic, dyeable, and non-perishable. They can be displayed proudly on the kitchen table as part of your Easter decor, instead of being tucked away in your refrigerator mere seconds after dying ‘real’ eggs. I wish I would have come across this product years ago, before my children grew into teen/pre-teen non-believers of magical beings!
