creative kids – easter craft

Oh so many lovely Easter eggie ideas!  I must admit I haven’t dyed eggs for many, many years so it’s time to get into it with my boys this year.  Before we do all the pretty stuff, let’s check in with Martha Stewart for some boiling and dyeing basics.

muffin tray is a cool way to dye them without a whole lotta mess.  It also means you can use a great range of colours all at once.  Once dyed you can simply decorate them with a Sharpie.

Now for the really fun stuff!

We are loving the latest looks in dyed eggs with these cool messages (a fun idea for lunch boxes too) and fab dipped white eggs (note: white eggs are a bit tricky to find in Australia).

Black & white – these would be fun at any time of the year.  I am especially loving the blackboard eggs – you simply need to add two coats of blackboard paint to your eggs then decorate with chalk or chalk pen however you like!

This is SUCH a cool idea, especially for those who are a bit short on space.  Add any little treasures you like to the wall in the shape of a tree, then pop your pressies at the bottom!  Merry, merry.
