Getting ready for Easter by dying eggs? Here are a few helpful Easter Egg dye ideas that will make this family activity a little more fun and a little less mess! Of course – you could skip the dye altogether and get artistic with these Sharpie Easter Eggs…
But if the traditional colored eggs are calling your name – here are our top tips:
1. Lay down paper bags or newspaper
One thing I always do is save my paper shopping bags from Aldi to lay out in front of each kid – like an egg dying placemat. It controls the drips and drops that are bound to happen.
2. Dry off eggs before dying – it will help the color stick
For tips on hard boiling, check out how to make perfectly hard boiled eggs every time
3. Have a place ready for the dyed eggs
For drying the eggs – use empty ice cube trays! Once the eggs are completely dry, store them back in their carton until you want to display/eat them.
