I actually chose to practice ahead of time with a technique new to me...blowing the eggs instead of boiling them. It worked fairly well, and I like that you can keep the eggs since there's no egg inside the shell any more. But since they aren't filled, the eggs float and you either have to stand there holding them under the water or let them fill with water...which takes a long time.
In the end, I decided to just boil the eggs I'd do with Addison. I had a lot of fun with my eggs though. I got some cool ideas here and kind of ran with them. (I have a picture of them at the end).I was thinking about showing Addison some of the techniques I learned, but it really was quite the ordeal just to get her to leave the eggs in the die long enough to color them, so I abandoned the idea. I did show her what a white crayon could do on eggs, but the results weren't very impressive. Maybe when she's four...Here are the finished eggs:And in case anyone was wondering.
