This Easter craft project can be a fun way for kids to decorate eggs without making a mess of the kitchen. Have dyed eggs ready to go for younger kids, and they'll love plastering stickers all over them!
For more variety and more sophisticated looks, try purchasing stickers at a scrapbooking or craft store. Remember, however, that eggs have no flat surfaces, so smaller embellishments may be easier to attach.
Find instructions below.Materials
- Hard-boiled or blown-out white or brown eggs
- Egg-dyeing kit or food coloring
- Small round colored stickers and/or colored reinforcements (available at office supply stores)
- Dye eggs using an egg-dyeing kit, or mix 1 tablespoon of food coloring with 1 cup of water.
- Drop eggs carefully into colored water and let soak for about 10 minutes. Take the eggs out of the water. Let dry.
- Decide how you want to put the stickers on the eggs. Make dots, faces, flowers, or whatever you like on the eggs.
- TIPS: Be sure to refrigerate hard-cooked eggs whenever you're not working with them. Refrigerate them right after dyeing or decorating. The American Egg Board advises that you discard hard-cooked eggs that have been out of the fridge for more than two hours.
