In order to make everything go as smoothly as possible, I decided that this potentially disastrous activity would take place outside.
I got a big piece of cardboard from the garage and set up the dye along with the eggs on top of it.
Jacob didn't really understand that the eggs needed to be left in the dye for a while, or that only 1 egg could fit into a cup at a time. That's ok though, because he still thought it was pretty neat and had a blast. He liked dropping the egg into the cup, fishing it out, and immediately dropping it into another.
