The Easter bunny will be hopin' to a neighborhood near you pretty soon, which means that it is time to stock up on Easter supplies! This year, I am really looking forward to getting crafty with my kids, more specifically with egg dying. We, of course, have done the traditional egg dying kits with vinegar, however this year I am looking to switch things up a bit. With just a few supplies, you can be creative and make memories with your children in time for the Easter bunny's arrival, so follow the directions for these fun and different ways to dye and decorate Easter eggs!
Here's What You'll Need:
Hawaiian Punch® Packets
Using Hawaiian Punch® packets and water, dye your Easter eggs in fun and vibrant colors! Simply grab a spoonful of the Hawaiian Punch® mixture and pour over your eggs.
Cool Whip Easter Eggs Here’s what you need:
Cool Whip – 1L tub, if using more bowls you may need 2
Liquid Food Coloring – we like this brand of food coloring because it’s concentrated and will give you more vibrant colors
Eggs (6 if doing one of each color)
Small Bowls or Container
Rubber Gloves or Disposable Gloves
Separate the cool whip in to small bowls, and the 2-3 food coloring drops into each bowl Using a toothpick (you can also use a fork), swirl the food coloring so that it doesn’t fully mix in. You want a swirl effect so that when you dip the egg in, it will leave a swirl/marble effect on your egg. Wearing gloves dip and roll the egg until it’s fully covered. Let sit for up to 10 minutes. The longer it sits, the more color that will transfer.
Here's What You Will Need:
Powdered tempera paint
Hard boiled eggs
**Powdered paint is not safe to consume, so if you peel you eggs and notice any color on them, do not eat them.**
If you've ever played with baking soda and vinegar before, you know how fascinating kids find it. You will need a container of baking soda for each color you will be using. Pour in some baking soda so that the bottom of the container is covered. Next, add in the powdered tempera paint. We used a tablespoon of powdered paint. Mix until the paint and baking soda are thoroughly combined. Have your child gently place a hard boiled egg into the container with the baking soda and paint. Pour some vinegar in a small cup and then gave it to your child to slowly poured it into the container. Watch how amazed they are when they see what happened! Remove the eggs with some tongs and placed them in an egg carton to dry. When they are dried, some of the paint will leave speckles and have an interesting texture to the eggs. Baking soda Easter eggs are easy to make and the results are always different.
