Egg-stra Special Ways to Color Easter Eggs
Are you looking for a new way to color Easter eggs this year? If you’re tired of plain one-color eggs, check out these easy, artsy ideas for kids!
Double Dip Eggs
Create perfect halves of color. Ask your child to pick their two favorite hues. Add egg coloring or food coloring to water and pour the mix into a shallow cup. Dip the hard boiled egg halfway into the dye. Hold the egg in place for a few minutes. Take the egg out and let the excess drip off the sides. Turn the egg around and repeat with the other side.
Paint Splatter Eggs
Use the blank egg as a canvas for a paint splatter art! Mix several different colors of Easter egg dye, placing each in a separate cup. Use a new, clean paintbrush to splatter the colors onto the egg. Your kiddo can cover as much of the egg as they want. Let the food coloring dry completely.
Color Mixing Eggs
Does your child want to use a rainbow of colors? Instead of buying a full spectrum of Easter egg dye or food coloring, choose the primary colors only—red, blue and yellow. Mix the colors to create other options. Yellow and blue make green, yellow and red make orange and blue and red make purple. Color the eggs with the new hues.
