Easter, and coloring eggs

Easter 2015
I am not sure when you started coloring eggs for Easter, or how you did it, but we started this year with our boys. The oldest is 2.5 years old and the youngest is just over 1 year. 
The youngest got to use the store bought dye tablets that you drop into water. He was really more interested in getting the eggs out of the water so he could drink the water, then he was in making the eggs turn color. Oh well, maybe it was a bit too soon. Hahaha
BUT the oldest... he got to try something new and fun! I added food coloring to shaving cream, dropped an egg in, and let him roll it around. He got VERY messy, and had colored elbows for a few days, but he had fun. According to the instructions, you are supposed to leave the cream on for an hour then rinse off and viola... tie died colored eggs. Well it didn't exactly work that way. I left the cream on for 4 hours and the color was still pretty light. Oh well, we had fun and will probably color eggs that way again next year. 

Here are a few pictures...
