While there’s nothing wrong with the traditional way of dyeing Easter eggs, that’s how we always did it growing up, trying out some alternatives can be lots of fun. There are so many different ways now that you can dye eggs with your kids!
Many of these are also more little kid friendly. Even toddlers and preschoolers can play a more active role in Easter egg coloring with some of these fun alternative methods.

Any one of these seven easy ways to color Easter eggs with kids is sure to be a winner. I’ve tried a few of these in the past and I’m still deciding which one I want to try this year.
Kool-Aid Easter Eggs
Use a kid favorite drink mix to color these fun Easter eggs. Use for a few STEM activities too!
Melted Crayon Easter Eggs
Crayons are something you’re sure to already have at home. This method is pretty mess-free which is always a win in my book!
Bubble Wrap Egg Coloring
Got bubble wrap around from a recent package? Re-use it to make these uniquely colored eggs. Kids will love the coloring and popping any extra bubble wrap.
Cool Whip Easter Eggs
This method is great for young kids. We used this method last year when my kids were 3 years old and 12 months old! It’s taste safe which is great for little kids. You can also do this with shaving cream although it won’t be taste safe then.
Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs
Want to go all natural? Find out natural items you can use to color your eggs and avoid using dyes at all!
Dyeing eggs with Skittles
Skittles are one of my favorite candies. Using them to color Easter eggs is such a fun & unique idea. Just remember that these candies can be a choking hazard for really young kids.
