Happy Easter! The Lord is risen!
Although I may be in college, some traditions never die. Dying Easter Eggs is one of them!
The best part of dying Easter Eggs at an older age is you are generally more creative with what you want to try, but that doesn’t always mean better.
Add some new Color Choices! You can find a premade color pack with some fancy colors, or create your own. Try mixing colors onto your egg by holding it in the water differently and switching around. You can also use cool whip or shaving cream to dye your eggs and easily add a bunch of colors at once.
Add Designs! Make them polka dotted or stripped. It will take a bit of extra time and maybe a cramped hand or two but you can ombre your eggs. Hold the bottom of your egg into a color cup for up to five minutes and depending on how many layers you want slowly put the egg lower into the water lowering the minutes as you go. Use the white wax crayon they give you to draw on designs. Note: you have to do this before you dye the egg and it can be hard since you can’t really see as you draw
Use ALL the Accessories. This is always a fun choice. Add some stickers or washi tape to your eggs. You can glue on other things like glitter or googly eggs to add some flare.
Photoshoot. Now an Easter egg hunt may seem too little kid-ish but you can always have a photoshoot instead. Use your door, your cat, some flowers, or some fancy baskets and start clicking.
Lastly, HAVE FUN. Don’t miss out on little joys by claiming to be too old. You will thank yourself when you spend the time just being a kid again.
