Decorated Easter Eggs in BasketThis is a good idea if you do not want to stain your hands with food colouring. Put your egg inside the whisk and dip it into a cup, then take it out when your ready. It's also easier for younger ones to handle.

This is making the best of a messy situation, Easter Egg Dye mess. We put old T-shirts on the girls and took the whole mess outside on the patio cement. It washed away by the next day. The air dried the eggs quickly.

If you want that old fashioned country look on your Easter eggs, just use brown eggs, dye them in 1 cup cold water, several drops of food coloring and a tablespoon of white vinegar.

My grandchildren don't care for eggs, but they love lemonade and lemon cookies. Rather than waste eggs, I decorate lemons and hide them for an "Easter Lemon" hunt.


This will work with limes and oranges also.

Jazz up your Easter eggs with stickers. Use small mini-stickers and add stars, dots, flowers, etc. to simple colored eggs.

I know that it costs a bit more than the .99 cent egg dye, but trust me the cups themselves last a long time. We bought the egg dyeing kit that came with the egg cups five years ago, and they are still in perfect condition.
