I had no store-bought Easter egg dye (the kids love to do it for fun, like art class =) and THEY DO NOT SELL THE EASTER EGG DYING KITS HERE IN COLOMBIA! Since I was sick, I did not have the energy to make a "homemade natural dye" (from beet, or raspberry juice, etc.), so I just let the kids COLOR our COLOMBIAN, NATURALLY BROWN EGGS with their MARKERS. SMILE!
This year, we did not want give our kids a bunch of candy for Easter...(for we spent lots of time and money at the dentist in Costa Rica, and some of them still need more work done). Usually, on the Monday after Easter, we take them to McDonalds or a place like that to celebrate, and we all eat and they play. For eating at McDonalds is a rare treat that they LOVE! (HERE, McDonalds is EXPENSIVE, THE CHEAPEST HAMBURGER IS AROUND $3.00). This month we are having to spend a lot of money trying to get our Colombian visas, so the McDonalds trip was not an option. SOOOO...We just gave the girls some fun, pink, spray-on lotion from Avon, and Noah some Sponge Bob Shampoo, that I had gotten at a GREAT SALE at Avon. They were happy, and their teeth were too. =) (Besides since they have a Mommy that LOVES to bake, and bakes ALL OF THE TIME, they get their share of sweets and goodies.) It was a different, but fun Easter.
