Having chicks again has made me so excited to see fresh eggs on my counter in a few months. It will take awhile for our babies to actually lay, but I know we’ll be just as excited to see their perfect eggs show up as we were the first time we embarked on this chicken keeping journey. I’m not sure what colors we’ll end up with in the end but we are hoping for a fun variety of dark brown, light brown, olive, blueish greenish and speckled. We’ll see!
These are eggs from our last flock – they were oh so pretty and so much fun to dye AND leave natural for Easter.
It’s so fun looking back at these photos but I’m also SO freaking glad our kitchen is finished. Ah! That was a crazy time. Three kids and no kitchen or laundry room is not the very best idea, guys. Live and learn.
Anyway, here is what I’m loving and hoping to try for Easter eggs this year.
- Using a sharpie on eggs like these.
- Trying out a white chalk marker or paint pen on this type of egg.
- Emoji eggs! So fun. Find them in this post.
- Watercolor eggs. We made this batch one year and they were so pretty!
- This kind of natural dye. One color is less daunting.
- Cactus Easter Eggs. I mean come on. Look at these photos!
- And this adorable little tray of dyed eggshell succulent planters- so cute.
I think we may spend all of April decorating eggs. I’m cool with that haha.
I’ll share whatever we end up trying.
Have you tried non-traditional egg dying techniques?!
Have a happy Sunday!
