1. Temporary Tattoos
Did you know that you can use temporary tattoos on eggs just like you do on your skin? Pick out a tattoo of your child’s favorite cartoon character or superhero and press the sticky side down on the egg. Wet a washcloth and hold it against the paper for 30 seconds or until the tattoo slides off with ease. It's so simple — kids love it! Watch below for more instruction:

2. Chalkboard Paint
You can find chalkboard paint at most craft stores. To make this even easier, pick up some chalkboard markers, which let you draw without having to apply much pressure. Paint your eggs, and allow them to completely dry. If you're decorating eggs with kids, give them free reign to decorate with chalk. To make this even easier, pick up some chalkboard markers, which let you draw with more control. They will love drawing on their own designs, erasing and starting over for the ultimate personalized egg! See this video for more tips:
Use Kool-Aid for an easy alternative to vinegar and food dye. Mix one packet of your favorite flavor with 1/2 cup of water. Wait for it to completely dissolve and then dunk the eggs! All they need is two minutes. Let the eggs dry, and enjoy the same bright colors as traditional dye kits without the annoying odor! Check out this video to see all of the flavors you can use:
4. Whipped Cream
Use this delicious dessert topping to create a whimsical marbled effect on your eggs. Swirl food coloring gel into a bowl of whipped cream with a toothpick. Then, place the eggs in the bowl and roll them gently until they are fully covered. Let them sit for 10 to 30 minutes, and rinse off the whipped cream to unveil your finished egg!
