Kitchen Fun for Everyone
It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.

Dyeing Easter eggs is a beloved family tradition for many!
Children of all ages (even adults) enjoy creating colorful eggs to celebrate Resurrection Sunday. In our home, we like to dye hard-boiled eggs, as they hold up to handling (particularly by little hands) much better than the blown-out ones.
Here’s how to dye your own Easter eggs at home.
Hard-Boil Your Easter Eggs.
Place several eggs in a large saucepan. For the best results, use a pan that is large enough to accommodate all of your eggs in one layer on the bottom. Cover the eggs with lukewarm or cool water. (Stop filling once the water level is about an inch above the top of the eggs.)
Here’s Another Egg-Dyeing Option:
You can place your food coloring or dye mixtures in little spray bottles, and allow children to mist their eggs with color. This is a super outdoor activity, if weather permits, as it can get a little messy!
