Coloring Easter Eggs

Saturday night when Ben got home we colored Easter Eggs.  We have never colored Easter Eggs the night before Easter but this week got away from us!
I also used the idea that Alyssa passed along in an email.  I added 2 ts. of baking soda to the water I boiled the eggs in and it worked!  Ben and I are not official egg blowers yet, but we get one to pop out and the rest have been really easy to peel :)

I haven't been able to blow one like he did yet:). They are easier to peel though for sure:). Glad it helped you too!

I never thought about drying them on the cookie rack like that. Great idea! I will do that next year for sure!!
