My mom came up unexpectedly from Arizona on a sad visit to go to her Aunt's funeral. Of course it snowed several inches while she was here when a week before we were pushing 70 degrees and everyone was so giddy from spring fever that they put their shovels in storage (gotta love spring in Illinois). She was able to visit with Jackson and I on her last day for a few hours when I got off work so I decided it was the perfect opportunity to do something fun with Grandma!
Enter PAAS color snaps. A woman at work raved to me about color snaps with her two toddlers in tow. She went on and on about how great they were. Since I had been wondering if Jackson would sit through dying eggs because he has typical toddler ADD and dying eggs is not the most exciting fast paced activity that he craves, I decided to try out these so-called color snaps.
While the snow was coming down outside like it was Christmas Eve, I boiled some eggs, let them cool and we got started.
Jackson immediately loved using the color snaps. He held onto the egg and colored all around his hand.
Jackson was really focused on coloring his eggs.
Overall I really liked PAAS color snaps. Jackson seemed to have a lot of fun and so did my mom and I. However it was a little messy. Especially when I peeled the eggs for Jackson to eat (he loooves hard boiled eggs). All the color came off on my hands and it took some scrubbing to come off.
We will definitely use them again (probably as soon as this weekend when we dye eggs with Cory's family). I wish I would have known about them last year since Jackson had absolutely no interest whatsoever in what everyone was doing at the table. I'm so glad I found out about them in time for dying eggs this year though!
