The exact history of egg dyeing is unknown, but according to mental_floss website, there are several popular possibilities. Eggs are a symbol of rebirth, King Edward 1 requested 450 eggs be decorated in color and gold leaf to give as gifts and early Christians painted eggs the color of red to mimic the blood shed by Jesus. For our Sunday School it symbolizes that Palm Sunday has arrived and it’s time for our egg dyeing tradition! This year we tried something new and blew the eggs out so that they were hollow, messy business, but fun! The kids then painted the eggs with watercolor or decoupaged with tissue paper. The eggs came out beautiful, but the best part was watching the kids!
