- 4-17-14: I cut file labels in half length-wise to use as tags and got long boxes out of the basement for egg dryers. We had enough eggs for all the kids of the 65 attendees to have 2 each and still enough for next year! I just need to remember next year to start with four egg drying boxes and have them all on the table.
- 3-14-13: I bought a LOT of eggs this year and hoped that we would have the numbers to justify the expense. I allowed 2 eggs per child and we used 80 eggs, so I estimate about 60 people came. The egg cartons weren't perfect - lots of people didn't stick their skewers all the way through, so the eggs tended to swing around. I forgot that I meant to give people sticky tags to mark their eggs. Note for next year!
- 2012: The skewers worked really well, but I need to remember to bring the egg cartons over to stick them in to dry at the beginning of the program, not the end. Ran out of eggs very fast. Need to enforce 1 per child. No, those are not "leftovers" those are for next year - or for the kids who come at the end of the program!
