You could pick up some Paas, break out the vinegar, and dye eggs like you do every year. Or you could blow your kids’ minds with these next-level eggcelent ideas (sorry, had to).
Because what’s cooler than decoupage eggs? Duh, galaxy eggs! Or is it tie-dye eggs?! Or sparkly eggs?! Good luck choosing one.
Who: This one's for older kids who have patience and precision; and parents who fancy John Derian.
What: Make color prints of botanical imagery (thanks Google), score a few Ostrich eggs, and get your cut and paste on.
When: They make gorgeous decorative items worthy of showcasing year-round, so take the time to do them right.
Who: Older kids can manage this one unsupervised, but there are plenty of "jobs" for younger ones if you do it with them.
What: Start with chalkboard plastic eggs (12 for $4 on Amazon), then follow the instructions to get the galaxy effect using brushes and paint.
When: If you follow the instructions carefully, the final product is museum-worthy.
Who: This one takes very little skill, so if your child can be trusted not to dump a bowl of glitter on the floor, you're good.
What: Martha suggests you blow out the eggs, which was code to us to buy fake ones. After that, it's all about glue and glitter.
When: These are big with the princess-loving set.
Who: Hey hey, everybody can handle this one.
What: All you need are hard boiled eggs, food coloring, and paper towels. It's almost impossible to screw this one up.
When: Opt for India Tree's natural food coloring (get it on Amazon), and you may even convince them to eat the final product.
