If you are looking for ideas to decorate your Easter eggs, try one of these super fun, extra creative, and kid-friendly Easter egg decorating ideas.
Dyeing Easter eggs is a fun tradition for kids and adults but can seem a bit repetitive so to give you some new, easy, and fun ideas to try, I have our favorite Easter egg dyeing techniques to share with you including marbled eggs, tie-dye eggs, glitter eggs, and more! The best part is you can put down the store-bought egg dye and get ready to WOW the Easter Bunny with your unique Easter eggs!
When it comes to decorating Easter eggs, there is really no wrong way to do it. No matter which way you try, I recommend having paper towels, plastic table clothes, and clothes that can get messy because coloring Easter eggs can get colorful, sparkly, and a bit messy. Once the eggs are decorated try these Easter egg hunt clues, Free Easter printables, and printable bunny ear craft.
Can I Eat Dyed Eggs?
It depends on your dyeing technique. If you are using edible dyes and supplies like food coloring, white vinegar, or whipped cream, and you handle your eggs with “food safety” rules in mind like keeping them at a safe temperature, then yes… but don’t risk it if you are unsure, no one needs to get sick for Easter!
If the dyeing technique uses markers, shaving cream, or other non-edible supplies don’t eat them!
How Can I Dye Eggs and Eat the Egg too?
The safest way to eat your eggs while still having fun dyeing them is to poke a hole in the top of the egg and the bottom of the egg with a toothpick or skewer, stir the inside of the egg to break up the membrane, then blow into one end of the shell so the egg comes out the bottom of the shell. You can refrigerate the egg mixture in an airtight container for up to 2 days (or current safety standards) and use them to cook with later.
Then you can dye the egg shell anyway you would like. These eggs are a little bit more fragile than hard boiled eggs, but still very manageable for kids.
You can see the tiny hole in the pictures of our Tie-Dyed eggs.
