Dyeing Easter Eggs
Using hard boiled eggs, use food dye to colour the eggs! To make patterns, use rubber bands to wrap around the shell or draw on the shell with wax crayons (the dye will dye the egg but the wax drawings will stand out)

We love this idea! Using our playdough recipe, reduce the flour by 1/4 cup and then add in 1/2 cocoa powder. Smells wonderful – enjoy!
Decorating Easter Egg Cut Outs
This is a really great craft for toddlers. Simply cut out an Easter egg shape from paper or card and let the kids decorate it! You can use things like cookie cutters, toilet paper rolls or finger paints. You can even cover the cut out with glue and get young ones to decorate with tissue paper or items from the garden.
We love this sweet idea from Wombat Playgroup! This could be a great one to drop off to grandparents too.
Make your own Easter egg baskets
Using egg cartons and whatever crafts you have on hand, get the little ones to decorate their very own baskets!
