Dying eggs for Easter is something my whole family enjoys. As my daughter gets older and is now a teenager, we have dabbled in different egg decorating methods, including tie dye Easter eggs and blowing out eggs to paint or glitter them.  We have grown to love tie dye Easter eggs and it can be done with children of any age-even toddlers!

How to make Tie Dye Easter Eggs:
