Are you looking to do something a little more special than just creating solid-colored eggs with the good ‘ole Paas kit? But at the same time you don't want to go overboard and create a 9-hour project for yourself either? Well- I've rounded up some great posts that I found for simple Easter eggs that look awesome- but don't require a lot of mess, time, or supplies! Here are 10 awesome ways to decorate Easter Eggs!
#1. Dye Easter Eggs with Shaving Cream (or even Cool Whip!)
This idea works with just shaving cream (or Cool Whip) and regular liquid food coloring. You can see exactly how it's done over at A Thrifty Mom.
# 2 Glowing Easter Eggs
I love this idea from Growing a Jeweled Rose! You'll need fluorescent or glow-in-the-dark paint, water, and vinegar. My kids would love this!
#3 Volcano-Dyed Easter Eggs
Kristina from Toddler Approved has a great idea for using vinegar and baking soda with food coloring which creates a bubbling “volcano effect” to dye the eggs!
#4 Decorate Easter Eggs with Rubber Bands and Dye!
You can try this effect with any Easter egg kit or vinegar/food coloring dyeing set up you traditionally use, but before dyeing the eggs, you wrap rubber bands around them first. Courtesy of Home-Ology (site no longer operating).
#5 Tie Dye Easter Eggs
Spoonful (site no longer operating) created these beautiful tie-dyed eggs… and you can see a super simple technique for making them over at A Little Pinch of Perfect!
#6 Decorate Easter Eggs with Melted Crayons
This is another great idea from A Thrifty Mom– and all you need are the eggs and crayons. This project is best for older kids because the eggs themselves are hot (which is what allows the crayons to melt). But easy and super awesome!
#7 Polka Dot Easter Eggs
These polka dot eggs (originally created by Lil Luna, but no longer on her site) are created by adding vinyl stickers to the eggs before dyeing them.
#8 Hand Drawn Easter Eggs
These simple eggs can definitely be created by tweens and teens and are really beautiful! You can check out how Confetti Sunshine (site no longer operating) created hers using food-coloring pens (I think I'll need to get me some of these!)
#9 Ombre Easter Eggs
This simple trick allows you to create the Ombre effect, just by adding more water to your egg dye! From Life H4cks (site no longer operating).
#10 Sharpie Easter Eggs
If you've got a budding artist on your hands… all you really need is a Sharpie to create these adorable Easter eggs! Courtesy of Mom.me.
