Easter Is Around The Corner
Who doesn’t love coloring Easter eggs!? It is amongst one of the most common American family holiday traditions. Kids love to dye eggs, and love to eat them. So, be sure to prepare more than you need, because devouring them during the coloring process is traditional too. This same ‘tradition’ also includes dipping your eggs into a multitude of colorful dyes, which has become somewhat mundane in my book. Here are a few ideas to get you inspired.
DIY Easter Egg Ideas
1. Chalkboard Eggs
Simple yet unique, these chalkboard eggs will be sure to keep your kids entertained while you cook dinner. Go to your local paint store and grab a small pint of chalkboard paint! Dip your eggs into the open can of paint and let them dry, afterwards give the kids some colorful chalk and a paper towel so they can write a little message to the Easter bunny! Super cute, and super fun!
From recollection, tattoos are every kids go to for some quick laughs. Pick up your children’s favorite cartoon character tattoos from a craft store or even a vending machine at your grocery store. You can still dip your eggs, maybe paint them with a brush and regular paint. Let them dry and apply the tattoos! I have found that boys prefer this theme more than girls, but girly tattoos are not hard to find.
This one’s for the girls! Dip your eggs and have some pretty glittery goodness ready to decorate with. Use some Elmer’s Glue to put polka dots, stripes, or even spirals onto your egg. Afterwards sprinkle your glitter onto the glue for a sweet new way to get all Easter with it.
4.Mustached and Manly
Mustache fun is all the rage right now, so why not include that on your eggs this Easter. All you need is a sharpie black marker and some well rounded eggs. Draw your best stache, and put on an egg show for the family.
5.Rice Krispy Eggs
Oh heaven this is. Make your most delicious batch of rice krispy treats and use plastic eggs to mold them over night in the fridge. You can dip them in melted chocolate, add sprinkles or food coloring. Keep them in the plastic eggs so when the kids find them on Easter they are in for a real krispy treat!
Instead of dying the shell of the egg, take the shell off and dye the egg itself. The dye sets into all of the cracks and crevices of the eggs and makes for a crackled jewel effect, and easy to shove in your mouth effect.
Hide your eggs with a vengeance this year and decorate them like the foliage! All you need is a few leaves and some paint. Dip your leaves in the paint and use them as a template for your eggs. I would suggest using a forest green paint, so they will blend into the grass, your kids will have a hard time hunting these camouflaged goodies.
All you need is hot boiled eggs and crayons. When the eggs are super hot place them back into the carton and let the kids color on them. The wax will melt, and the crayons leave a colorful, rich coating! This one is very easy, but be sure to watch those little fingers because the eggs are certainly still very hot!
I hope these DIY Easter egg decor ideas give you some inspiration for the upcoming holiday. Enjoy them with your cool kids, and get eggy!
