 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).
When our friends arrived, the adults hid our eggs (we had 30ish and they had at least as many) all over the back yard. Then all four kids collected for the better part of our time before dinner. No egg hunts for Ruby this year, but the kids shared their (empty) eggs with her.
