Are you trying to find alternatives to dyeing Easter eggs? Your reasons might be varied. It might be because you are vegan, because you don’t like hard boiled eggs, you don’t want to waste food, or because there are no eggs at your local market due to this weird time we are living in.
Regardless of your personal reasons, I got you covered with these THREE crazy, creative ideas. I hope you love them as much as me and my family do:
All you need is some acrylic paint and a brush on hand and the rest is up to nature. Go on a quick, mask-wearing hike out in nature (or around your block) and collect your favorite rocks. Come home and paint your bounty as if they were eggs. Easy, pretty, and they last a lot longer.
2|3: Easter Hummus Toasts
Skip the eggs and go for toast…in shape of eggs. Smother with hummus and decorate with cut up veggies for a great alternative. I made mine into eggs, bunnies, and chicks, oh my! Variations for this one if you don’t like hummus: use cream cheese or even peanut butter. If you use a nut butter of choice, switch the veggies with fruit.
3|3: Watercolor Paper Eggs
This one isn’t a post however the concept is basic. Cut out a large egg shape from card stock, decorate designs with a Sharpie, and then have your kiddo watercolor their hearts out. We had a lot of fun with this one, plus the little guy got to design his own too, which he liked because, well, he’s a toddler and he really likes power and control.
Curious to hear if you have any alternatives to dyeing Easter eggs? Would love to hear them below.
