Easter is coming!

Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life.  ~S.D. Gordon

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:


 a variety of Kool-Aid packages
eggs (hard boiled)
2/3 cup water per package of Kool-Aid


 Add one packet of Kool-Aid to 2/3 cup of water and stir.
Make sure eggs have cooled and a dry!

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.

Color Tips:

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.

Rice Krispies Eggs
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 package (10 oz., about 40) JET-PUFFED Marshmallows
  • OR
  • 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

4 envelopes of Knox gelatin

3 (3oz.) boxes of flavored gelatin
