Oil Dyed Easter Eggs- Does it work?

Continuing on with my quest to find a fun and easy Easter Egg project… I moved on to oil dyed Easter Eggs. I honestly picked this one because I already had all of the supplies I needed at the house. Anyone else get excited when that happens?

I Tried Making Silk Dyed Easter Eggs…

So usually this time of year Pinterest is filled with pages and pages of beautifully dyed Easter eggs that seem a bit too good to be true. Each year I tell myself I’m not going to wait till the last minute to see if any of them actually work. Like in real life.

The Silk Dyed egg tutorials seemed easy enough, and I made sure to read through 2 or 3 different postings. They were all the same. Except one had an extra step. I’ll note that as I go through how my trial with six eggs went.

Spring Break Camp – The Palm Beach Zoo

One of the things I honestly never thought about before becoming a parent was where my kids were going to go on non-school days. It’s not on any parenting list, they just show up. I loved those random days as a kid… something fun and different, but now as a parent I’m like … OK… another day that I need to plan.

It can be a bit stressful. Where are they going to go? How are they going to get there? How will it change our schedule? AND… how do I keep them away from screens (which is a problem I’m encountering more and more).

Three Easy Ways To Have Your Kids Help Around the House

Kids can do chores. (Insert gasp here…)

Yes! They are capable of doing much more than most parents expect these days.

I remember when I was in Kindergarten doing chores. You probably did too.

Setting the table for dinner. Clearing the plates after dinner. Dusting the living room shelves. I always loved that one. Continue reading “Three Easy Ways To Have Your Kids Help Around the House”
