Creative Easter Egg Ideas

Look no further for cute Easter art projects that adults and kids can create together!

With Easter coming up, I thought it would be fun to show a twist on Easter eggs that could be used even after the holiday is over. Have you tried egg dyeing? Your little one's are sure to be colourfully-inspired all afternoon! All you'll need is food colouring, enough warm water to cover your eggs and 1 tsp white vinegar. Dip your hard-boiled egg fully in dye and let it dry.


Be adventurous and why not try a sunny gradient look? – This requires a little mixology, and if you're going for progressively darker shades of the same colour, you'll need to concoct three or four food dye mixtures with increasing colour concentrations — but a little work seriously pays off. The colours will look AMAZING!


Start by washing and drying your eggs (white eggs produce the most vibrant colours, brown eggs will be more muted), prepare your dye in deep bowls, and have some paper towels or absorbent cloths at hand.

Directions:

  • Step 1: Mix colours using ⅓ tsp (¼ tsp for yellow) food colouring, enough warm water to cover eggs and 1 tsp white vinegar.

  • Step 2: Dip egg fully in dye and let dry.

  • Step 3: Dip the egg again ¾ of the way into the dye and let dry. Repeat in quarterly increments.

CRAFTY TIP — with some rubber bands, before dunking the egg in a vibrant dye, wrap hard boiled eggs in bands of multiple widths in any and every direction. No two eggs will be the same, so just go with the flow 🙌
