Dyeing Easter eggs is every bit as delightful as it’s cracked up to be (get it, cracked?!?). I’m all about crafty activities and hands-on projects that require creativity and imagination, and dyeing eggs, though simplistic, falls nicely into this category. As luck (and planning) would have it, I dyed eggs on two separate occasions this Easter season. On Thursday night, equipped with twelve color options and a slew of stickers and eggcessories (tehe, I’m on a roll!), I created masterpieces with two of the most adorable girls on the planet.
And this is a sampling of our finished product:
I enjoyed our artistry so much, I decided to go for round two last night, and ended up with an army of vibrant egg heads (just add vinegar!). This proved to be highly amusing, as my friends and I took turns mimicking the silly faces we were creating.
As entertaining as all of this was, it is just a small detail of Easter, and one that pales in comparison to the significance of its true meaning. Easter is not about colorful eggs, it’s about a loving Lord who conquered death so that we can live meaningful lives full of His purpose and hope. And that is way better than any Easter egg.
