Comments about Product: My twelve-year-old daughter loves this. It's great for a child who enjoys detail-oriented crafts. It does take a while to finish each egg, but we're saving the dyes so she can work on the eggs when she has time.
Comments about Product: We thoroughly enjoyed dying eggs this year. It was much more fun than the usual one color, no design way we have always done it. Just wished we could get straighter lines....
Take the time to read the directions in advance of sitting down with the kids.
Best for age 7 and up.
Comments about Product: This was great Easter fun for my grandchildren who have outgrown Easter Egg hunts and think the usual egg dyes are boring. They loved the challenge of creating a really special Easter egg.
Comments about Product: Being raised Russian Orthodox, this recreated a yearly Sunday School activity from my childhood at home. All of my kids LOVED it, and we left it out for weeks around Easter/ Pascha. the dyes will store a LONG time in mason jars. We are planning on doing these eggs year round! We may even plan a get together around it!
