1) Start by gathering some farm fresh eggs.
2) Get some help from your great-grandmother.
3) After collecting enough eggs, sit on the porch and enjoy a little coke in a bottle.
4) When you get home, wash the eggs with soap and water. Place them in a large pot with cold water (to reduce cracking) and a little salt and boil.
5) Next, you will want to start with a nice, clean work area.
Or you can ignore that step altogether.
6) Bring the whole family in, coloring eggs should be a family affair!
7) Scream at your little brother for breaking all your eggs and try to push him off the counter. Act like your not mad at him long enough for a quick photo.
8) When you tire of the traditional egg coloring routine, call in an artist. An artist can help make the eggs into a variety of things like rabbits, flags, and cute cartoon figures.
9) Encourage the artist in a young-in by having them think of ideas and then turn them loose with sharpies (which wears nicely with their Easter outfit the next day).
10) Smile big and pack your Easter baskets. Go and celebrate our RISEN SAVIOR!
11) Put aside your “special eggs” so that no one else gets to find them in an egg hunt after church.
12) Leave one basket of eggs at the family Easter gathering.
13) Put the other basket of eggs in the back of your mom’s car and forget about it for a week. Be sure to throw stuff in on top of it throughout the week from all directions knocking the basket over so that the eggs will roll around and break in a million pieces.
14) At the end of the week, help mom unload the car! Act extremely upset to find that your eggs are broken and stinky.
15) Finally, laugh it off and take the few that are not broken and chunk them into the horse pasture as far as you can.
This concludes our 15 steps to egg coloring success! A few Easter weekend photos to follow soon.
