This year Easter is on Sunday, April 20, 2014. Easter Sunday is considered one of the most important holidays for young children. It is popularly celebrated with egg hunting and toy bunny rabbits. This is a very festive holiday for the family to enjoy. With places to go, home-made meals to be made, and gift to be given!
A great treat to make with the family is some good old fashion deviled eggs. Not the boring white colored eggs, you can make colorful deviled eggs. There is no magic involved, you just use food coloring. After you have boiled the eggs and let them cool, you remove the shells and place them in a bowl of water. Then add your color of choice to the water. The more dye you put in the darker the color will be. Give it about 30min to absorb the dye and then place them out to dry. Then you can fill them with the cream.
