About this time every year, Katy and I have a crazy tradition. We paint eggs with the kids. After years of trial and error we have come up with a technique that works great.

1. We no longer use raw eggs. Katy had the brilliant idea to boil the eggs the night before so that we could paint them without breaking them with the roller.

2. We no longer use rollers. Katy also had the brilliant idea to dunk the eggs in some diluted pigment and let them soak.
