Easter is a fun time for kids, not just because of the chocolate but also because there are so many Easter related crafts that can be done.

Dyeing eggs is fun for the whole family and a great tradition to add to Easter.  The wonderful thing about dyeing or colouring eggs is that there are so many ways to do it to add variety year after year.

1. You can of course dye the eggs traditionally, and for younger kids, putting the colours into muffin trays and then adding the eggs is a great mess free alternative.  You can also draw on the eggs with a crayon prior to dyeing or decorate with stickers or markers once the dye has dried.

easter2. Another idea is to place an egg in a high top container and submerge the egg about a quarter of the way in.  Dilute the liquid with water to raise the water line to cover half the egg, repeat covering three quarters of the egg and then lastly, dilute so the egg is fully covered.  The striped egg effect is quite easy to do, and looks great.

3. You can add little notes to your eggs by placing on some alphabet stickers prior to dyeing them.  Once dry, peel the stickers off and you will be able to read your message.  These make great lunchbox options and will put a smile on any child’s face when they see your message.  Another creative option is to use sticker images.

4. If you don’t want to dye the egg, then you can just draw directly on the egg to create some interesting patterns.  Add a mustache or a little face to add some personality to your eggs and create a little egg family for your enjoyment.

5. Blackboard eggs also look very cool.  Paint the eggs with a couple of coats of blackboard paint and decorate with the chalk when dry.

If you do get around to decorating some eggs this Easter, we would love to see your photos.  Feel free to send them to us via our Facebook page.  Happy crafting!
