Easter is on it’s way and we have started dying and decorating our eggs. Have you? I am always on the look out for new or different ideas to make our eggs special or fun. Growing up, my favorite thing about Easter was always dying the eggs. We would get out as many colors to use as we could and boil as many eggs as we could, and at the end we had about 100 eggs dyed (and a week later we had 96 boiled eggs to eat). Ha! I love my eggs to be bright, cheery, and unique. Oh, and of course fun for the kids. The kids come first, right? If you are looking for some Easter egg dying inspiration, here are 5 tips to make the best dyed eggs on the block.
Is there anything better than a blank canvas? Eggs provide just that and these neon dipped ones provide the best pop of color. I love the different angles that are dipped too. It’s a great way to mix things up in the Easter basket! And of course I love the neon. Neon will always have a special place in my heart. And now in my Easter basket!

These are so pretty and so fun! Not only are they beautifully watercolored, but they are also monogrammed. And you know who loves monograms? Kids. Kids love to see their first initial on anything and everything. This would be super cute to use on an egg hunt. Have a special egg for each kid mixed in with the plastic eggs just for them with their letter on it. You could even watercolor them in their favorite colors! Genius.

3. Tie Dye
The classic tie dye but on eggs! Tie dye is definitely not just for T-shirts and hippies anymore. These eggs would be a lot of fun to make with the kids. Watch their faces as you reveal the outcome of each egg. Can you just imagine? Also, you could try and use black as one of the colors to make it look galactic. I know a certain little boy who would absolutely love that.

4. Rubber Bands
Rubber bands? Yes! It’s super easy to do and the outcome is fun and kind of whimsical. I love the green and pink pallet of these eggs. So springy! I would suggest having several different sizes of rubber bands to get different-sized stripes on the eggs. You could also dye them, then add the rubber bands, and dip them again into a coordinating colored dye. Mix things up and have some fun with it!

OK, OK. So these eggs aren’t technically “dyed,” but they were just too cool and too pretty not to include! If you have some pretty shades of nail polish, you can make these . They look like little masterpieces, don’t they? The kids will have a blast helping you make these little pretties. I don’t know if the nail polish makes the eggs inedible, but why would you want to eat them anyway? They’re too pretty!
