Easter eggs just ain’t what they used to be… they’re so much better!

Remember the old days of Easter egg dying? You would get all excited as your family gathered around the kitchen table. Your parents would give you two or three small bowls of dye and one of those weird, wire dippers. Then the “fun” would begin. You would dip a few eggs and wait for them to dry… and then it was over. Sure, they were cute, but they just weren’t worth the hype.

Boy, how things have changed! Easter egg decorating has taken on a whole new identity. Easter eggs are now works of art. The standard “dye and dry” is old news. Try one of these creative and artistic Easter egg decorating ideas instead.
