Easter Egg Dyeing Class

IMG_3518cr
Over the weekend, our local Williams-Sonoma was offering a Easter Egg Dyeing Class for children. I had seen the sign last week when I was driving by. I knew this would interest my little crafty daughter so I signed her up.

Each child received the Williams-Sonoma Egg Decorating Kit and 1 dozen eggs. The kit came with everything you need to decorate eggs.

I think my favorite was the wax crayon which created a resist on the egg when you dip it in the dye. She seemed to like that crayon, too. It was like magic seeing the design reveal itself when you dipped it in the dye.

She had a great time decorating the eggs. The lovely ladies at Williams-Sonoma also baked Easter shaped sugar cookies for all the children to snack on after the class. That made the class even better for the children. She loved the cookies so much, I bought the kit so we can make some at home.

She was very proud of her finished eggs. I also decorated a few eggs because I couldn't hold back my crafty self. :-) It was way too much fun to resist.

We still have plenty of supplies in the kit to decorate more eggs. Williams-Sonoma used their own dyes so that we could go home with the dyes for future use. I told her that she could decorate more eggs when we finished eating all the current eggs. I didn't want to be left with dozens of hard boiled eggs since I am the only one that eats them.

Looks like a great class! How fun that you both got to decorate eggs. They look good, too, and I like Melody's braided hair, too! She gets prettier every time I see her.

Oh, what fun -- great that you could do it together AND take some great photos! Williams Sonoma has some good ideas. ;)

She's so cute and I love the concentration she shows while painting the eggs.

Can I confess that I want to kit too (and I am no spring chicken anymore ;-))

Oooh, so much fun! Easter is my favorite holiday just because of the eggs, I have such a great time doing them with the kids, a dozen never seems like enough for each person.

Oh what fun! That reminds me of years gone by when my kids were small and we dyed eggs for Easter. Love the look of concentration while decorating with that crayon.
