Every Easter, children dye eggs, hunt for plastic eggs filled with candy, or eat chocolate eggs filled with caramel. Easter is a time for bright colors after the dreary winter, so decorating eggs to display around your house is a festive and colorful way to start off the spring season. While using dye can be time-consuming and messy, there are other options for sophisticatedly decorated eggs. Cut out circles, stripes, or other patterns from double-sided tape. Stick the tape to the egg and roll the egg in glitter. Brush off any excess glitter with a dry, soft paint brush. For a multi-colored egg, only stick a few pieces of the tape to the egg at a time, and roll in different colors of glitter. The glitter eggs can be tastefully displayed together or individually.
Whether you’re entertaining or just spending the day at home, creating unique Easter treats can be a daunting task. Instead of simply giving your friends or children chocolate, try creating Easter s’mores using Peeps instead of regular marshmallows. Place a graham cracker, a piece of chocolate, and a Peep together on a plate in the microwave. Heat them up for a few seconds to soften the chocolate and warm the marshmallow (be careful not to microwave them for too long or the Peep will expand and the chocolate will turn to goo). Top it off with the final graham cracker, and enjoy!
