Spring is here and with Easter approaching we wanted to share some eggciting ways to decorate Easter eggs with the kids. The lovely ladies at the Tampa Bay Morning Blend invited me to join them and share the fun!
1. Sticker Eggs: This is a great option if you have a baby or toddler that wants to get in on the fun, without the mess. After boiling the eggs and letting them cool, simply find some fun stickers to add on! Make it educational with alphabet stickers or writing their name in Stickers!
2. Paint The Eggs: This is a fun way to eliminate the stress of the food dye and vinegar, but not the messy hands. Make your favorite designs or have the kids just have fun with it! Using washable paint is definitely a plus! You can even have some fun with chalkboard paint and once it dries, have the kids decorate them with chalk.
3. Shaving Cream Eggs: This out of the box way to dye eggs will have the kids giving you some cool mom points. Add the shaving cream to a pan and drop food coloring all over. Use a stick to draw lines and mix the color then roll the eggs through. Carefully remove them with tongs and let them sit overnight on a drying rack and rub off the shaving cream the next day for a beautiful marble look!
4. Natural Ways to Dye Eggs: There are a lot of fun ways to dye Easter eggs naturally using spinach, beets, coffee, and more, but I think the coolest way is using purple cabbage because it makes them BLUE! Boil a head of chopped cabbage in 5 cups of water for 25 minutes. Once it’s through, add 1 tablespoon of vinegar, and then set aside. Once cooled, dip the eggs in the strained liquid and let them sit overnight.
