This is a nice and simple way to add a splash of spring to your home.

Fun polka-dotted Easter eggs – Tutorial from www.ahousefullofsunshine.com
Kids will love to help create these cute Easter eggs.
For this project you will need:
- Real eggs
- Push pin, toothpick and a straw
- Stickers in the shape of dots
- For the dye – ¾ cup of boiling water, 1 tsp. of white vinegar, and ½ tsp. of food coloring of your choice.
- Cups or bowls for the dye
Start by making tiny holes on either end of the egg. Then, insert a toothpick to loosen up the yolk and to make the hole big enough for a straw. Blow through the straw to empty the contents of the egg into a bowl or the sink. (This blog gives detailed instructions)
Next, rinse out the eggs and stick them in the oven for 15 minutes at 200 degrees to help them dry. Add your stickers to the eggs and then dunk them into the cooled dye mixtures for about 5 minutes. You may have to use another cup or bowl to weight the egg down. Once the egg is dry, you can pull off the stickers for the polka-dot effect.
