#1: Tie Dye Your Eggs!

Tie-Dye Easter Eggs

All you need is food coloring, or the little tablets you can buy at any store right now and vinegar. Mix each color with a tablespoon of vinegar and go to work! Sprinkle up to 3 colors over each dry and hard-boiled egg. I used a syringe to squirt the colors onto the eggs, then let them settle. Quickly rinse with water. You’ve got art!

Easter EGGstravaganza For Young And Old

Easter EggstravaganzaToday was the first Easter celebration of the season at the Phoenix Club in Anaheim. Being a German cultural center that seeks to upkeep German heritage not just for Germans, but the whole community, this Easter EGGstravaganza integrated mostly German Easter traditions.

And then you paint them and you still have to be careful like nothing else to not break them. At least, if you get through all of that, you CAN use them to decorate. Lastly, you can, of course, buy colored plastic eggs to decorate – but where’s the fun in that? Continue reading
