Easter egg dyeing is one of my favorite artsy activities to do with my kids this time of year. But when you don’t have any hard-boiled eggs, what are you to do? You can think outside the traditional egg this Easter with these crafty activities that both you and your kids will love.
Birdseed Easter Egg
Give your backyard birds a treat with this activity that only has three ingredients: gelatin mix (unflavored), bird seed, and plastic Easter eggs. Make the gelatin per the box instructions, then mix in 10 cups of bird seed. You may want to divide this up so you’re not making it all at once… because this recipe will get make anywhere from three to four dozen “eggs!”
To form the bird seed eggs, spray the plastic eggs with cooking spray. Once you’ve done that, pack the mixture into the eggs and put them in the fridge so they can harden. Once they’ve formed, you can pop them out of the eggs and leave them as treats in your yard for the birds… and maybe even the squirrels too.
This one is super easy peasy. Put out the craft supplies, plenty of colorful markers, and paper cut out in the shape of Eggs. Let your kids’ imagination run wild!
