- Use an art mat or newspaper to protect your surfaces. Roll up sleeves. Put on an art bib or old t-shirt for younger kids.
- Food colouring or natural dye. Your choice. Both stain so be sure of above protection plan.
- Easter egg tools. What you dunk with is another choice. You could use a bowls or mason jars. You could use a slotted spoon, mini strainer, even a whisk (put the egg inside the whisk – it doesn’t fall out or roll off).
