Dye the Eggs
Marbleize the Eggs
What's the best part about oil and water not mixing? The amazing marbleized eggs you can create! Plain is pretty, but eggs covered in swirly shades of color are truly unique. Where to being? Add vegetable oil to this week's shopping list and follow these simple steps.
- Start with dry, colored eggs.
- Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to one of the cups filled with a dark colored dye. Run a fork through the mixture.
- Dip egg into cup and re-dye it in the oil mixture, turning the egg often with a spoon.
- Carefully remove the egg. Set it aside to dry on a paper towel.
Decorate With Stickers
Keeping track of all those eggs can be challenging, which is why this step is crafty and extra helpful. Once the eggs have completely dried, let the children personalize their eggs with stickers. Now there's no confusing Mason's turquoise egg from Stella's teal egg. Phew...
To buy: Find sheets of stickers at your local craft store.
Build Natural Nests
Turn to household items for making proper resting spots for the eggs. These nests are made out of recycled coffee filters and paper grass.
To buy paper grass: Visit your local craft store. Or make it yourself using brown bags or kraft paper.
To buy unbleached coffee filters: Visit your local supermarket or natural food store.
Make Adorable Favors
Forget about buying fancy takeaways, the kids will enjoy carrying their creations home to share—and show-off.
