Happy Easter!

What a beautiful time of year, typically full of spending time with family, hunting for eggs, and making colorful creations!!

Today we are going to share with you some fun at home Easter crafts and activities! The first how to make egg dye at home! The best part is you only need 1) water 2) vinegar and 3) food dye!

Creating this dye is simple – Mix ½ cup boiling water, 1 teaspoon white vinegar and food color in a bowl! It’s that easy! Play around with how many drops of dye you want to use as well as mixing different colors of dye to get the desired result!

If you want to make your eggs even more interesting – grab those crayons you have lying all over the house and use them to color on your eggs first – where the crayon goes the dye will not stick! Try different colors and dyes for fun combinations!!

For a fun twist on egg dying you can use shaving cream whipped cream to give your eggs a tie-dyed effect! All you need is the shaving or whipped cream, food dye, a cooking sheet, and a straw!

All you do is spread shaving cream evening in your baking sheet, then squirt different color dyes all over in the shaving cream! Use the straw to swirl the colors together! Rolls the eggs in the dye until they are completely covered and leave for 10 minutes. Then rinse the eggs off!

Another fun Easter activity is Peep Painting! All you need are some Peeps (yes I mean the candy) and paint!

If you don’t have paint check out this great video where Sara teaches you to make your own paint at home!

Once you have your paint and your Peeps all you need is paper! Let the Peeps become your brushes and create a work of art!
