While I’m away on Spring Break with my family, I thought I’d leave you with something fun for the leadup to Easter: my five favorite Easter hacks. I gave these archive gems a little 2015 makeover.
1. Dye Easter eggs in a muffin tin
Leah’s Easter egg-dyeing hack continues to be one of the most popular tips on Parent Hacks every year.
2. Pasta server as Easter egg dye dipper
Adrienne discovered that a pasta server is the perfect tool for getting eggs out of dye. FOREHEAD SMACK OF BRILLIANCE! I use this tip every time I make hard-boiled eggs.
3. Decorate Easter eggs with washable watercolors instead of dye.
This smart idea for simplifying Easter egg decoration came from two people: Chris Brogan in 2006 (he gave his wife Katrina the credit) and Jen Graybeal via Twitter just last week.
4. Veggie Pirate’s Booty as edible Easter basket “grass”
5. Use nail polish remover to erase scuff marks on white shoes.
If part of your Easter tradition includes a fancy dress and white shoes, keep Rachel’s clever scuff-removing tip in mind.
