My Kingdom for an Egg!
Repost from previous year. Thought you’d enjoy a fun way to make egg dying a linguistic game. 🙂
Every year our family dyes eggs together and we use the little clear crayon supplied by Paas to write clever quotations making use of the “egg” motif as creatively as we can.
Here’s Jacob intently dying his egg
This year’s eggs have the following terrific quotes:
Two eggs, both alike in dignity.
My egg! My egg! My kingdom for an egg.
Some eggs can’t make it on their own. (U2)
It’s been a hard egg’s night. (Beatles)
E-G-G egg (“You’ve Got Mail”)
Five star egg
Two eggs don’t make a right but three eggs make an omlette.
The last egg standing.
“Hey dude, where’s my egg?”
“Two hatcheries, both alike in diginity.” (Shakespeare)
“She’s all grown up and saving eggs.” (Mulan)
“Pride and Pregg-udice.” (Austen)
Etc…. Please post your favorites here. We always like new ones.
For those needing a vegan alternative, here’s a link to some egg-less suggestions:
I received an email from my uncle with these in it right after I received your blog update reminder. I thought some of these were quite cute. We are looking forward to adding this to our Easter egg dying tradition tonight. Thanks for the ideas. Our 21 year old and her boyfriend already have their creative juices flowing.
Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket
Walk softly and carry a big carrot
Everyone needs a friend who is all ears
There’s no such thing as too much candy
All work and no play can make you a basket case
A cute little tail attracts a lot of attention
Everyone is entitled to a bad hare day
Let happy thoughts multiply like rabbits
Some body parts should be floppy
Keep your paws off other people’s jellybeans
Good things come in small sugar-coated packages
The grass is always greener in someone else’s basket
An Easter bonnet can tame even the wildest hare
To show your true colors you have to come out of your shell
Well, I guess they aren’t about eggs. But I thought they were cute and would work well too.
