Easter Eggs {Life as a Field Trip}

But there’s still dye left!

My son and I both had a day off on Friday. It was the perfect time to finally make Easter eggs, but we had only 7 eggs in the fridge. We left a few eggs to soak in the dye and headed to Target for more eggs. As we walked through the automatic doors and towards the Dollar Spot (always the Dollar Spot!) P said, “We should make an Easter Basket for the Easter Bunny. He never gets an Easter Basket because he’s delivering them to everyone else!” So a new tradition was born. We bought a few small things and dug out a previous year’s basket and voila! We’re ready for the Easter Bunny.

      Thanks, Neva! I can’t take credit though, my parents raised me to think creatively. I’m just passing it on ;)
