Easter is celebrated with the traditional Easter egg hunt. Parties are never complete without this traditional game, so if you’re a party host, be sure to include the hunt into your list. To prepare the eggs, all you have to do is boil chicken eggs, prepare your craft kit and supplies and explore your imagination.
Use Rich Colors as Base Dye
In dyeing eggs, select vivid colors that are enough to stand alone as a design itself. Be explorative and designs can be endless. Refuse to perform the traditional lighter base paint as they can be a tad boring, too. Remember, too, that coloring can differ as you use brown or white eggs.
Kool-Aid and Vinegar Tandem
This trick will earn you applause from parents and elders as this is both practical and creative. The mixture of Kool-Aid and vinegar results to simple pastel hues on eggs. To make bolder hues, leave the eggs in the dye for longer time period. Using this non-toxic mixture, you can save toddlers who are overly curious and eat anything their eyes sees ‘lovely.’
Handy Kitchen Ingredients
You can make use of the ingredients found right inside your kitchen for non-toxic coloring. Aside from Kool-Aid and vinegar, you can utilize blueberries, plums, beets, paprika, coffee, turmeric, green tea, vegetables and fruit peels.
Scents for the Hunt
Add scents on eggs to encourage hunters to use their multiple sensors. You can make use of citrus extracts like lemon, lime and orange as they can be easier to track. Added benefit, they’re not toxic for anyone who would eat the Easter eggs. You can also explore mixing other strong scents which can be found right from your kitchen.
