This is from a few years back, but I wanted to post it for Easter! 🙂
Happy Easter Everyone!!
We had our annual Easter egg-dying get together. There are no rules. The kids just grab a boiled egg from a pile. They can dye or decorate it any way they choose! Moms get involved too! It’s fun.
This year my sister-in-law hosted our Eggstravaganza! She provided plain white handled bags for the kids to design themselves. We finished the event with a little egg hunt.
Every year, I tell myself that I’m going to study-up and learn some new and unique egg-dying tricks before the Eggstravaganza. 🙂 I didn’t do it this year, but I’m going to be prepared for next Easter! So far, we use the tried and true method of writing names and drawing patterns on the egg with a white/clear wax crayon before dipping it into the dye.
We also use a trick learned from a great aunt in which the egg is wrapped in several rubber bands and then dyed.
Here are some egg dying tricks I want to try in the future:
- Silk-Tie Eggs – from the Martha Stewart website:
- Lace Eggs – also from Martha Stewart:
- Tissue Paper Eggs:
