How many ways can you think of for Easter Egg decorating? I think no matter how old my kids are, they will always think about decorating eggs when Easter rolls around.
Since they were old enough to understand, we have been setting up the little bowls of dye, trying new techniques every year, and placing the dyed eggs in a basket on Easter morning for them to find with the chocolate bunny and Peeps.
Since they were old enough to walk, we've been hiding eggs for them to find. In fact, they would often have two hunts because my dad always wanted to hide plastic eggs with coins in them for the kids to find before dinner. My girls have such fond memories of those times.
Isn't it crazy that the first eggs were decorated back in the thirteenth century and we're still doing it today?
Even crazier, the Easter Bunny symbol of the holiday was brought to the US from Germany, where they had stories of an egg-laying hare.
You may not find any reference to Easter eggs or bunnies in the Bible, but the egg symbolizes new life, and new life is what the Bible is all about. I hope you and your family have a wonderful, wonder-filled Easter.
