“Egg Dyed Friends”

Dyeing eggs can be so much fun and there are many different techniques to try. You can buy a simple kit, do natural-dyed eggs, shaving cream Easter eggs, watercolor Easter eggs, string wrapped Easter eggs, and so many more. You can find many how to’s and tutorials online, experiment to see what you like! Since it was my son’s first year we just started with a simple store bought kit but I can’t wait to experiment with many other ways through the years.

Not only is this book adorable and festive it comes with two pages of stickers (150+) to replicate some of the lovable character in this book as well as decorate stickers too.
