Since dip-dye is all the rage these days, we thought we’d try it on our Easter eggs!
All you need are some hard boiled eggs, cups, and a good old-fashioned egg dye kit.
1. Mix the dye according to the directions, making sure the pellets are completely dissolved.
2. Pour about 1/3 of the dyed water into a clear cup like these.
3. Carefully lower the egg into the cup at the angle you’d like it to be dyed and lean it against the side of the cup.
4. When the egg has reached the desired shade, carefully remove it from the cup.
5. Blot any drips of water from the egg and let it rest on a paper towel or cooling rack to dry.
*Tip for measuring the right amount of dye into the clear cup: To make sure the water line was at the right place and not too high or low once the egg was in it, I first tested it out with clear water. I placed an egg in a clear cup and poured water in after it until it reached the height I wanted on the egg. Then I removed the egg and made a mark on the cup where the water line was.
*Tip for eggs with horizontal dye lines: I placed these eggs (the blue and orange ones) straight down into the dye and held them steady with my index finger in the center, rather than leaning them up against the side of the cup. All you need is a little patience and a steady hand!

While looking for Easter crafts for the boys, we stumbled upon this adorable paper plate baby chick. We loved that little guy so much we decided to make him a lamb friend! We think anything with googly eyes is hysterical, so of course we had a lot of fun with these silly Easter characters.

3. Fold the four strips accordion-style and glue to the back of the plate.
4. Glue ears onto the back of the lamb’s head and googly eyes to the front.
5. Glue the lamb’s head onto the cotton ball-covered plate.
We will use just about any excuse to munch on a couple (boxes of) Peeps this time of year. Turning them into drink stirrers is our best excuse yet!
All you need are some bunny Peeps and cake pop sticks and you are good to go. You can get Peeps at the dollar store and cake pop sticks from your local craft store.
Add these drink stirrers to your favorite fruity cocktail, a glass of lemonade, or a cup of milk!
What are your favorite ways to use Peeps? We also dipped ours in chocolate…

Here is a simple and affordable DIY decoration for your home this Easter! All you need are some plastic eggs from the dollar store, yarn, and a plastic sewing needle.
1. Most plastic Easter eggs come with at least one pre-punched hole in the top and bottom, perfect for threading with string to make a garland! A handful of the eggs that we got from the dollar store didn’t have holes punched all the way through, so we used the plastic needle to puncture the holes a little better. If some of your eggs don’t have holes for whatever reason, just use any pointy object to make a hole, like the needle, a pen, or a small screwdriver.
2. Thread the yarn onto the sewing needle (you can also use any kind of string as long as it fits through the holes in the eggs).
3. Starting stringing the eggs onto the yarn!
4. Once you reach the length you’d like, tie a knot at each end of the garland to keep the eggs in place. If you use yarn, the eggs will most likely grip and not move, but just to be safe, a little knot at each end is a good idea.
5. Hang your garland and enjoy!

We love a good box of pink and yellow Peeps this time of year, but we love them even more when they’re dipped in chocolate! Take your Peeps to the next level this Easter by adding a cake pop stick, melted chocolate, and sprinkles!
Ingredients: Peeps (we used the bunnies in pink and yellow), dark chocolate, white chocolate, and pink candy melts, assorted sprinkles, and cake pop sticks. You can get Peeps at your local grocery store or dollar store and the rest of the ingredients and materials at a craft store!
1. Push cake pop sticks into the base of the marshmallow about 3/4 of the way in.
2. Melt chocolates according to the directions.
3. Dip marshmallows in melted chocolate to coat them as much as you’d like.
4. Before the chocolate cools, add sprinkles!
5. Lay finished marshmallows on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper.
6. Cool in refrigerator until the chocolate is set.
7. Store in airtight container.
