We can all agree that one of the best family Easter traditions is decorating Easter eggs—even Ree Drummond can get behind it! Still, Ree readily admits she's not exactly the world's most expert crafter. If you're like her and love the idea but perhaps need a little help, Easter egg dye kits make the project so much easier.
The best egg dye kits simplify the whole process, can make it mess-free, and allow for amazing egg decor you couldn't create on your own. Dyeing tablets or powders, egg holders, and sometimes fun extras like magic crayons and stickers come included. But first, which dye kit should you choose?
Of course, there's nothing wrong with the classic kind you likely used as a kid, but these days, you can really get creative with Easter egg designs like cute farm animals, emoji stickers, and even egg painting techniques. Depending on the kit, you might need white vinegar on hand (the acidity helps the dye adhere to the shells), paintbrushes, and hardboiled eggs! Once you've got everything ready, lay out some sheets of newspaper on a work surface and start dyeing! Regardless of which kit you choose, it's a good idea to teach the kids food safety by keeping the eggs refrigerated until you're ready to hard boil and decorate them. Some of these kits are designed so that you can safely eat the eggs after decorating. Shop these kits, and get ready for the egg-citement!
