Easter is such a magical holiday for little ones. There’s the Easter bunny, Easter treats, cookies and chocolate, Easter crafts, Easter baskets, and of course the egg hunt. Remember growing up and decorating eggs with your parents? Chances are you simply dipped the eggs in some dye and that was it. While that’s fun, there are so many other ways to decorate Easter eggs. You won’t believe all the creative options that are available. Whether it’s stickers, markers, or dye there are so many creative ways to decorate Easter eggs.
If you plan to eat the eggs after the Easter festivities are over, make sure to properly cook them. The best way to hard boil an egg, and avoid that icky green colour on the yolk, is to boil the eggs for 5 minutes, remove from heat, and cover the pot. Let the eggs sit for 30 minutes and you’ll have perfectly cooked hard-boiled eggs.
Now, when it comes to decorating there are so many options. It all depends on the age of your children. Some techniques can be extremely advanced, while others are so simple that a toddler can do it. Decorating eggs is a great way to spend the day before Easter doing something fun with your kids.
Let these methods be an inspiration. You can always use these as a jumping off point for creating your own Easter egg designs. Just remember, dip-dying eggs will always be fun, but you can do so much more. Even placing stickers on the eggs before dying them and then peeling the stickers off to reveal a design can be a lot of fun.
