One of the best parts of Easter is watching the kids decorate eggs. Except I get the same egg dye in a box that I’ve been using since I was a kid. While it definitely gets the job done, and my kids are great at finding new ways to mix and swirl colors, I thought it time we try to get out of the box and see what DIY Easter Eggs ideas we could come up with.
