Egg-cellent Fun

Your inner Easter Bunny will cotton to these fun ideas ‑- whether you're trying to find activities to do with the kids or ways to surprise them on Easter morning.

Little hands don't always have an easy time dyeing eggs ‑- shells break or crack (especially when dropped), and staying still and "watching" the egg sit in the color can lead to cries of, "I'm bored! Is it done yet?" Keep your bunnies busy and happy with these easy, unbreakable Glitter Eggs. Best of all, when you hide them for the egg hunt, you won't have to worry about finding that lone, lost stinky one three weeks later!

Glitter Eggs

For each egg, you'll need:
  • A 2-1/2-inch Styrofoam egg

  • White glue

  • Paintbrush

  • Pink, purple and green glitter


  • 1)Pour pink glitter into a deep bowl.

    2)Using the paintbrush, coat entire egg in white glue.

    3)Roll egg in glitter; let dry.

    4)For dots: Place small dots of glue around the egg (do just a few at a time). Holding egg over newspaper, sprinkle purple glitter over each dot. Let each set of dots dry before doing the others.

    5)For stripes: With paintbrush, apply thin stripes of glue down length of egg (do only a few at a time). Holding egg over newspaper, sprinkle green glitter over each stripe. Let each set of stripes dry before doing the others.
