It's funny how the universe provides answers in a timely manner sometimes. Just yesterday a friend who has a 21-month-old was telling us she had bought a traditional Easter egg dyeing kit to dye eggs with her son when she realized what a potential (messy) disaster it could be. Imagine our delight to find Jo's fun, smart idea for egg dyeing with a salad spinner waiting in our Inbox.
Salad spinners are just fun in general and our own son loves pressing the handle down to make it spin when we're washing lettuce. We've heard of using salad spinners to make decorate paper and egg decoration is a small, clever leap from that. Jo of Jojoebi Designs wrote about her method (and instructions) for egg decorating with a salad spinner on her blog A bit of this and a bit of that which you can check out here.
So we'll add this to our list of Egg Decorating Ideas for Toddlers.
