Easter Egg Tree


A beautiful, inexpensive, and FUN activity with kids! Only about a few weeks late, but figured I’d post it as inspiration for next year! 🙂

What you need

  • Eggs
  • Dye
  • Toothpicks
  • Thread
  • Fresh tree branches (Forsythia, dogwood or other work well)

How to make your Easter Tree

  • Select fresh white eggs and blow them out. Here’s how: 1) make a small hole in each end by tapping/chiseling with the tip of a sharp knife, 2) poke a toothpick inside one of the holes to break yolk, 3) then blow the egg white/yolk out into a bowl, 4) wash off egg and let try. This is a tricky process and not recommended for kids – you should do this first and then you can have the kids help with dyeing the eggs. More tips here.
  • Dye eggs and decorate as you wish – some metallic paint brushed on dyed eggs is a fun way to add some sparkle or shine!
  • Hang by tying some sewing thread to a 1/2 toothpick inserted into the egg to create a stopper.
