An Easter Egg Craft....or Two


You can't celebrate Easter without an Easter egg craft....or two.


Make your first holiday activity an egg decorating "eggs"travaganza. The recipe is simple for this child holiday craft, so head to the kitchen with your favorite kids and get the party started!

Because we emphasis easy craft ideas, our suggestion is to start off with hard boiled eggs. We invited a group of 3-5 year olds to help us out. Here's what we did:

Easter Egg Craft




Cooking Hard Boiled Eggs

  • Gently place the eggs in a small saucepan

  • Add cold water to the pan, covering the eggs completely

  • Bring to a boil

  • Lower the heat and place a lid on the pan

  • Simmer over a low flame for 5 minutes

  • Let the eggs cool completely before decorating

Now are eggs are ready to be dyed and decorated!

Food Coloring Dye

2 Supplies:
  • Food coloring
  • Vinegar
  • Hot water
  • Hard boiled eggs
Instructions:
  • Using a coffee mug, combine food coloring with 1 teaspoon of vinegar and a 1/2 cup of hot water

  • Gently lower the egg into the mug (use a spoon)

  • Let the egg soak until it reaches the desired color

  • Remove the egg from the mug and pat dry with a paper towel

Repeat the steps above with different colors. Experiment with mixing color: Mix red and blue to get purple, and mix red and yellow to make orange!

Easter Egg Craft


To add designs to your colored eggs try one of these ideas:

1. For a tie dye effect, wrap rubber bands around the eggs before dying.

2. Write your name or draw a picture on your eggs using light colored crayons and then dye as usual.

3. Place stickers on your eggs before dying! Peel them off when the dye dries.

4. Cut small strips of masking tape and stick on eggs before dying.

Our helpers, Yael and Liya, chose simple tempera paints and google eyes to decorate their eggs.
