I’ve been searching for easy ways to decorate eggs with the boys for Easter. I came across these cool tie-dye Easter eggs by One Little Project and had to try it. I used plastic craft eggs from Walmart for this activity. They turned out just as good as the hard-boiled eggs. Make sure to use gloves so you don’t stain your hands. Hope you enjoy making these tie-dye Easter eggs with your kids!

Hard-boiled or plastic craft egg
Spray bottle filled with water
Start by wrapping an egg ( plastic or hard-boiled) inside a paper towel then tie it with a rubber band. If you don’t have a rubber band, use an elastic hair tie.
Next, randomly drop food coloring on paper towel covered egg. Leave spaces in between the colors.
Use a spray bottle to spray water all over the paper towel so the colors bleed together. If you don’t have a spray bottle, fill a cup with water and drip it off your fingers until the colors spread.
Finally, gently squeeze the egg over the sink if there’s any extra water. Let it dry on a plate or tray for a few hours or overnight then unwrap it!
