As a kid, we used to have a giant egg hunt every Easter party with our family and friends. After the hunt, we used to paint on the eggs and keep them out to dry. The most creative egg used to win 20 dollars every year. The competition was fierce and it always ended up in a huge blow-out fight. Nevertheless, it’s one of the many family traditions that’s very close to my heart.
How To Make Sprinkle Eggs Easter Craft
I firmly believe that sprinkles have the power to make almost anything better. They pop color and magic, wherever they’re used. With Easter around the corner, why don’t you use that power to glam up your eggs?
Egg Decorating Pro Tips
Even if the craft is as easy as it sounds, here’s a few tips you should keep in mind before you start gathering your supplies.
Tip #1 – Egg Substitutes
If you’re vegan or do not feel comfortable with wasting your eggs, you can always experiment with alternatives. For instance, Styrofoam eggs or faux eggs are great substitutes for regular eggs. The best part is that they will be available in almost any local craft store. However, you are free to use anything lying around the house that can serve as an egg’s stunt double.
Tip #2 – Hard Boiling The Eggs
Firstly, place the eggs in a saucepan. Then fill the pan up with water to an inch. Cover it with a lid and let the water boil. After you leave the eggs in boiling water for 6-7 minutes, dip them in ice-cold water using a spoon.
