Bonus Tips and Tricks

Dye and dry your Easter eggs in a muffin tin so your little ones can better see and access the eggs during the process


To give small hands an easier grip and better control, place the egg inside a whisk to dip into the dye. No worrying that the egg will roll away, as it might with a spoon!
