Egg Safety Tips: Boiling and Dyeing fun all year round

I like to do activities with my girls that are creative and fun. One of their favorite things to do is dye eggs during the year. Of course it all starts with Easter, and after the holiday I make sure I buy a few dyeing kits on clearance (around $.50-$1 each) to let the girls use them whenever.

For me, it’s not just about dyeing the eggs and being creative. It’s also about having the girls choose a healthy food option. As they get older they become pickier about eating, and being a part of the cooking process motivates them to eat better. Teaching them how to boil eggs is exciting to them, and dyeing their egg shells makes it even more fun.

The most important lesson of all during this time is handling our eggs safely. We are careful about cleaning any spills from cracked eggs on our countertops and washing up.

Watch my girls in action as they boil and dye their latest batch of tasty fun!
