Easter falls on March 23rd this year, which isn't exactly right around the corner, but is a little earlier than usual. My kids, thus far, have been pretty happy just dunking their Easter eggs into a cup filled with food coloring, usually over and over and over
again, until all the colors blend together and we end up with about a dozen or so brownish eggs to display. This year, though, I think they'll be ready for something a little more crafty.
Family Fun has a lot of interesting ideas to jazz up your eggs this year. For instance, try wrapping a rubber band
around the egg before dipping it. Or make pictures on your eggs
using art tissue paper. You can even color a still-warm hard boiled egg with crayons
Older kids and fun-loving adults might want to get a little more sophisticated. Try this Ukrainian version of dyeing eggs
that uses melted beeswax, or use vinyl adhesive
to make beautifully stenciled eggs. These glittered eggs
are gorgeous, as well. Keep in mind that when using products that aren't food safe, you'll need to blow out the egg before decorating.
