Don’t Be a Chicken! Try these 20 Creative Easter Egg Ideas

20 Creative Easter Egg Ideas

Easter is just a few days away which means it is almost time to dye eggs!

I have so many fond memories of dying eggs at home. My mom was always unbelievably patient with me…even when I tried dying our eggs before boiling them in water. (What a mess!) I will also never forget finding an egg weeks later hidden behind our piano…another oops.

For those who celebrate, I am sure you can remember the good old days of buying the Paas egg kit that came with those little round tablets that you had to drop into vinegar. Somehow your hands always ended up getting stained an odd greenish brown color. I really wish I had known about this GENIUS idea. Today there are so many options! Eggs kits that have glitter, stickers, sparkles and pretty much anything you can think of.

For those who want to skip the kit and think “outside the carton” here are 20 unique ideas for making beautiful Easter eggs.
