    I havn't dyed eggs since I was like 10 and having no children (yet) Have had no reason to do so. However I work at a Daycare and decided to take some of my brown eggs in for the Toddlers to dye. I bought the $1 egg kit from Dollar General and Really didn't know what to expect. The eggs turned out wonderfully and the kids had so much fun. I did hard boil them, and I'm glad they had such thick shells because one little girl kept pounding hers on the table while she waited for her turn, AND IT DIDN"T CRACK!!!!
    okay enough jabbering here are the pictures.

    I didn't think the orange and green would turn out and looking at them dry I think they are my favorites.

    I have a pot of beet juice cooling that I am going to do some eggs in and another with onion skins. I want to try natural dye with my brown eggs this time. I do have kids but I want to do it myself. LOL Your eggs are just lovely!

    Sooo.... you can dye the brown eggs, and they come out those colors? I have two brown layers and one cream color layer, I was just going to use the eggs from Dorothy's cream colored eggs.

    Do the brown ones have to soak longer?

    They came out gorgeous!

    How pretty! I didn't think the brown eggs would color so nicely. I've been saving the eggs from my one white egg layer for the boys to color, but i don't even have a dozen yet. I'll have to let them try a couple brown eggs too. [​IMG]
