Easter Egg Dying + “EggMazing”
March 23, 2021
Continue on the classic tradition with these tips for Easter Egg Dying, plus a guide to using the “EggMazing” from Amazon!
My family is OBSESSED with our EggMazing. It has held up beautifully for the last few Easters. All you do is add batteries and switch it on, then color your eggs to your hearts content! This little gadget is perfect for any kid that can hold a marker alone or with an adult’s help.
We have a lot of fun talking about mixing colors and rainbows and color combinations while we work on our EggMazing. If you don’t have fresh hard-boiled eggs, or are worried about potential waste/mess, check your local supermarket’s holiday section for artificial white eggs meant for coloring!
An Old Classic
Of course, you could always stay old school and dye your Easter Eggs the way I remember doing as a kid. For this, all you need is to mix 1/2 cup boiling water, 1 teaspoon vinegar and 10 to 20 drops of food coloring. Then, dip your hard-cooked eggs in dye for about 5 minutes.
Here are my tips for Easter Egg Dying!
- This is the perfect time for your inner “color scientist” to come out! Talk with your kids about color mixing and the shades of colors as you wait for your beautiful eggs.
- Use rubber bands to create designs on your eggs before or during the dying process! Wrap bands of varying sizes after dipping in one color to have stripes show through.
- Work your magic with a white crayon. The wax will stick to the egg and whatever you write or draw will show up after dying
- Dying doesn’t have to be the end of the crafternoon! When your eggs dry, embellish with googly eyes, stickers, markers, or anything you have on hand.
