The holidays are all about making memories as a family. At Christmas time, we continue family traditions, like my family’s annual cookie day, and we have started some new ones with the Elf on the Shelf. We are always together with extended family all throughout November and December.
And then winter hits. The weather makes it impossible for us to get together as often. We’d rather stay snuggled under a warm blanket then leave the house. Before we know it, Spring is approaching and it’s been weeks since we’ve seen family and friends.
One of the holidays that tends to get overlooked is Easter. It’s one of those holidays that just kinda sneaks up on you. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make the most out of it and start some new family traditions. This year, we hosted an Easter Egg Dyeing Party for our friends. It was a great excuse to see each other, get the kids together, and create some new memories.
I know what you are thinking. A party? I don’t have the time for that. But your Easter Egg Dyeing Party doesn’t have to be stressful and it doesn’t have to break the bank. After all, that’s not what it is all about. It’s about being together.
5 Tips for Hosting an Easter Egg Dyeing Party
Keep the food simple.
There’s no need to make elaborate food or create a huge buffet. In fact, I really went the easy route and made DIGIORNO® pizzeria!™ pizza. With a crust that’s crispy outside, but soft and airy inside and a flavorful sauce made with vine-ripened tomatoes, DIGIORNO® pizzeria!™ pizza is a whole new pizza experience!
Create a fun tablescape.
Since we were dyeing eggs, I wanted to make sure my tablecloth would collect the dye we knew would be spilled. I put down some craft paper over top a plastic table cloth. I then used a marker to carve out each child’s dyeing station. It was completed with their own egg crate, dyeing cups, and spoon. No fighting on dyes and utensils!
I added some fun elements like plastic grass and eggs to make the table fun!
Prep ahead of time.
Don’t wait until the last minute to get yourself ready! Grab your supplies the next time you are shopping at Walmart.
Boil your eggs ahead of time! You need your hard-boiled eggs to be cooled before you dye. I always like to set my table up the night before. Just make sure you keep little hands away before your party!
Have some fun treats!
A party is not complete without some fun treats! I didn’t want to slave in the kitchen so I whipped up the cutest treats for the kids. All you need are some marshmallow bunnies, white chocolate melting wafers, paper straws, and SWEETART® Jelly Beans.
Place your marshmallow bunny on a paper straw. Skip popsicle sticks! Your bunny will wilt! You need something stronger like a paper straw. Melt your white chocolate wafers and dip your bunny!
Let the excess chocolate run off the bunny before standing up. As the chocolate sets, adds as a SWEETART® Jelly Bean as a tail!
It’s really that simple! The kids will go nuts over this treat!
Since your party is low-key and stress-free, get in on the fun. Dye some eggs with the kids! Get a little messy. After all, this is about making memories!
