Decorating with Rubber Bands
Just wrap your egg with rubber bands before placing it in a container of dye.
Remove the egg from the dye when it reaches a shade you like and let it dry. Then you can either remove the rubber bands or, to give your egg a few different shades, take off only some of the bands before dyeing the egg in a second color.
Decorate with Stickers
Your stickers can be letters, animals, or other basic shapes. Or you can make your own “stickers” using any self-adhesive paper, such as contact paper.
Fix the sticker to the egg, then place the egg in a container of dye. Remove the egg from the dye and let it dry before removing the sticker.
Decorating with Wax Crayons
Let your little artist decorate an egg with wax crayons BEFORE it’s dyed.
Place the egg in dye until it reaches the desired shade. When you pull it out, kids will be amazed that their designs (especially if you used a color like white, that they couldn’t see before it was dyed).
