Dreena, a mother of three and a cookbook author, recounts her experience of navigating a dilemma during her daughter’s Easter egg-dyeing project at school. She shares, “Last year I found myself in a bit of a pickle, though. Our daughter’s class was dyeing eggs as a project, and each child needed 1/2 dozen hard-boiled eggs.
“I just couldn’t use a real egg (let alone six), not even if I asked a friend for one. Just couldn’t do it, and neither could our daughter. The girls are very connected to animals, and they didn’t want any part of using a real egg either. I didn’t know what to do. I thought about alternatives… plastic eggs wouldn’t work for dyeing… styrofoam eggs, might have worked but I couldn’t find them. Then, I thought about it and realized that many craft stores carry wooden items for painting. I called them and sure enough they had some wooden eggs! Perfect! I picked up a few for both girls. They did not dye as well as I thought they might, but they were still pretty and the girls had fun. And, we still have the eggs (i)!”

5. Toss the egg
