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.

    Lots of great ideas to colour the eggs!!

  2. Elizabeth Matthiesen says:

    Such sweet ideas, I used to dye egg shells using onion skin and delicate ferns and I also painted Easter bunnies in varying scenes on egg shells too, it was fun. A great shame egg shells aren’t very robust.

  3. Elizabeth Matthiesen says:

    I adore the Choir Singing Boho Easter Eggs, they are so cute. This theme could be used for Christmas carols too.

  4. Debbie White Beattie says:

    I’m amazed at all the beautiful ways eggs are decorated nowadays because back when I was a kid we just stuck them in food coloring and it was done but today they’re very elaborate and detailed.
