Easter Weekend {Volcano Egg Coloring}

We had a fantastic Easter weekend, and I think I may have really worn myself out! I was going, going all weekend, and we did everything we had planned here.

See the beautiful eggs above? We created those on Saturday using the Volcano Egg Dyeing technique I originally saw here at Toddler Approved! It was so much fun and the results were really, really cool. 

  • You basically make a paint out of baking soda, water, and food coloring.
  • After painting the eggs with the baking soda pains, you drop food coloring directly onto the eggs. The more colors the more fun.
  • Then, you pour vinegar over the eggs and watch the eruption!
We did this on paper plates with a good lip, so the eggs wouldn't roll off. We did the regular dipping the eggs in the dye technique too. My little guy really seemed to enjoy it. :-) The "tie dye" looking eggs are the ones make with the volcano technique.
Our coordinating outfits came out nicely for Easter day. I mentioned that I made my dress, and it turned out great! 
There was Easter egg hunting...
 And a little "mowing" (and bike riding-thus the helmet)...
 Then we walked to the park...
 And we spotted some pretty blooms on the way back from the park.
There's a little view of our weekend.We enjoyed the time with family and the wonderful reminder that Easter brings of the love Jesus has for us all.  I hope yours was as blessed as ours. 

P.S. I even created a new recipe this weekend for Peanut Butter Banana Bread. Be sure to check back on Recipe Thursday this week for that!

I'm having a blast at these lovely linking parties.
