- Dyeing eggs naturally is as much a science experiment for the kids as an art and craft activity. By experimenting with different foods, you can create a rainbow of colours with which to dye your Easter eggs.
- Hardboil your eggs first, and the kids can draw on the eggs with crayons before you dye them. The patterns will appear once they are coloured.
- If you want to keep your dyed eggs for a long time, you will need to blow out the contents of the egg. This can be tricky, so perhaps it's easier to simply make a basket full of colourful, hard-boiled eggs that will last as long as the chocolate stash from the Easter bunny.
