So you’ve boiled the eggs - now what? Before you go out and buy that cheap egg dying kit from the nearest grocery story, take a look at some of these tips to make egg decorating even more fun with your kids.
Add a little twist to this Easter ritual with some of the following ideas we’ve collected from other creative minds. Get those artistic juices flowing!
1. Egg Animals
Make your boring egg into a cute critter by using materials like felt, construction paper, pipe cleaners, and googly eyes to create bunnies, chicks, and other springtime characters.
Add a little sparkle to your egg dying process. Mix together white glue and water and dip your eggs into the mixture before rolling them in glitter. Or, opt for a more simple technique with glitter pens.
3. Washable Marker
This option may be better for little ones that may get too messy with dye. You can give them full control to decorate the eggs how they like without staining their hands.
Here’s another mess-free option that can be used with younger kids. Buy a bunch of fun Easter-themed or springtime stickers and let them go nuts!
5. Oil and Food Coloring
Add a tablespoon of vegetable oil to the vinegar and food coloring mix and dip your eggs in multiple colors for a cool marble tie-dye effect!
6. Ribbons, Gems, and Lace
Use whatever tactile materials you have around your house to add a fun 3-D touch to your eggs.
