  • Make marbled eggs by adding oil to some of your colors! Check out this tutorial from Better Homes & Garden magazine.
  • Create a speckled design using rice, food coloring and baggies. This shake method offers a less messy option that gets toddlers and preschoolers in on the fun. Bonus: you can use the colored rice for a sensory bin afterward.

  • Tie-dye eggs with brush pens or markers. Check out this tutorial to learn how.
