Decorating Easter Eggs

We decorated Easter eggs twice today. First, the girls got a little crafty ~ and a little messy ~ decorating foam eggs with stickers.

Later in the day, we dyed Easter eggs outside...wearing smocks so as not to get too messy. The girls did a great job listening, though, and when the eggs were done there wasn't even a droplet of egg dye anywhere. Egg salad for lunch tomorrow!!

I love the colors {we used McCormick's neon food coloring this year because I had a coupon}, but can you see all the cracks? Four out of six eggs cracked while they were boiling. Why does that happen?
