We actually remembered to dye eggs this year! Though Eli wasn't really into it. I even found a 'tie-dye' kit to use, but after doing one egg, Eli opted to play outside.
The day before Easter was supposed to be our neighborhood egg hunt, but rain caused a cancellation. That meant that we had 30-40 prepackaged eggs waiting to be hunted. Luckily we had planned to have some friends come over the next afternoon, and those friends have two young kids. Before they came, I hid some 'hard to find' eggs the kids received from Grandma Cathie and Grandpa Jim. I think I had as much fun as they did! The eggs were colored to blend into outdoor landscape: total success. There were only 12 eggs, which I re-hid three times, and each time it took at least 10 minutes to find all eggs (sometimes with big hints from Mommy).
