This a wonderful time to make memories with your children. Dying eggs is always fun.
Below are a few cute and fun ideas of projects to do with the kids around Easter.
Kool-Aid dyed eggs
Did you know you can use Kool-Aid to dye eggs:
You don’t have to leave the eggs in the dye cups very long before you’ll see them become quite brightly colored. The eggs will smell fruity at first but after they dry, they smell and taste like normal hard-boiled eggs.
To get a nice yellow, use one packet of Lemonade mixed with a quarter to half packet of Orange.
To get light pink, use one packet of Pink Lemonade and add a little bit of Cherry or Strawberry.
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 package (10 oz., about 40) JET-PUFFED Marshmallows
- 4 cups JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows
- 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
Once done mixing roll in egg shapes. You can cut them in half, burrow out a little hole and put M&M’s inside then put both halves back together. You can also keep the egg together and roll in spring colored sprinkles.
Jello Easter Eggs
Finger jello Easter eggs
4 envelopes of Knox gelatin
3 (3oz.) boxes of flavored gelatin
4 cups water
1to 2 doz. hollowed out egg shells
Boil water. Add Knox and flavored gelatin. Stir until dissolved. Prepare egg shells. Hollow egg shells: shake eggs. Make a 1/4 inch hole in large end of egg. Shake our insides. Rinse with water. Set up in egg crates. Pour jello mixture into egg shells. Refrigerate.
Tip you can use a small funnel or a syringe to put the jello into the egg shells. Also if you would like you can cut the eggs in half place them on a plate and place a dab of whip cream on each of them.
