Harrison and I had so much decorating eggs today.
Fun Ways to Decorate Your Eggs
Basic Directions:
Of course, hard boil all your eggs first. :)

Dot It!
Supplies:
Dye
Glue Dots (the permanent kind) OR double sided-tape to make stripes
Colored Fine Sugar (just add food coloring to sugar)--could do salt instead,too.

You can find glue dots anywhere near glue in the store. I know for sure they are at Hobby Lobby, Walgreens and WalMart.

1. Dye your egg with food coloring. Let dry.

2. Put colored sugar in a shallow bowl or dish.

3. Put glue dots in a random pattern around your egg.
4. Gently roll in sugar.
5. Admire your cool egg.
