Muffin tin as Easter egg dye container

Leah discovered this hack while dyeing eggs with her toddler:

A large muffin baking pan works really well for egg dyeing. I have two and was able to use one for dyeing and one for drying dyed eggs before putting them back in the carton.  The 3 tablespoons of water fits well in a cup (err on the scant side; a couple overflowed when I dropped eggs in), and it's nice to be able to use all 12 dye tablets in a single container.
