Easter Egg Dying

My kids have strong memories of dying Easter eggs from previous years.  For the last few weeks I've heard, "Do you remember when we colored eggs with Grandma and Grandpa Haig last year?  When can we do that again?"  So on our weekly shopping trip this week we picked up some dye.  We tried a different kind this year.  The kids put baggies over their hands and hold an egg.  I drip some dye onto the egg and they move it around - kinda like finger painting the eggs.  It gave them a nice speckled look.  The only problem was the package recommended doing it while the eggs were still warm for fast drying and Becca held the egg for about 10 seconds and decided it was too warm.  Even when I cooled them more, she wanted no part in holding one again.
