Volcano Dyed Easter Eggs
These eggs will look like they just popped out of the volcano. The colors and hues resemble hot lava and this is a great project for toddlers and up. You can choose a number of different colors or make them all uniform if you wish. The best part is when the volcano actually erupts on the egg, which is why the kids are going to love creating these.

Hot Glue Resistant Easter Eggs
To create unique patterns on your eggs you can use a number of different things. Hot glue works very well (this should be supervised by a parent for younger children). You simply put the glue on the egg and then dye it in your chosen method. The glue works much like crayons before coloring. It will resist the color in the spot that is glued and give you a wonderfully unique pattern.

Melted Crayon Easter Eggs
Crayons have been used to color and pattern Easter eggs for decades. A relatively new concept is to actually melt those crayons before you use them. You can combine different colors when you melt or do one color for each egg if you prefer. This is a great method for making unique eggs and one that helps you to use up those old bits of crayons instead of just throwing them away.

Light Bulb Sleeve Easter Eggs
You don’t really use the sleeves of light bulbs directly on the egg, but they do help you to create unique looks for your Easter eggs. You can use those sleeves to create lines that can easily be turned into trees, flower stalks or many other pictures. This process uses acrylic paints although you could experiment with food coloring if you prefer to go that route.
