Ideas on How to Decorate Easter Eggs



Stripes: Rubber bands of varying widths, placed tightly around the egg, will leave stripes of the under-color after dyeing.

Wax-resistant patterns: Use crayons to create patterns on hard-boiled eggs. The wax will repel dye when dipped. An adult can then place the dyed, dried eggs on foil-lined, rimmed baking sheet in 250 degree oven for 10 minutes to melt the wax. Lastly, remove the eggs and carefully remove residue with paper towels.

Animals: Create a bunny, hen, pig or even the family pet using the egg as the body and adding ears, tail, and so on. Use pipe cleaners, yarn, paper cutouts, non-toxic markers and pompons will bring your critters to life.

Stencils: Tape small stencils to the egg and brush or sponge-on acrylic paint.
