Easter is the time of year where thousands of parents make a pilgrimage to the store to buy dye, candy and basket fillers. You don’t have to do that this year. Make Easter easier by checking out some of these simple Easter Hacks.
Easter is one of my favorite holidays! Sometimes the stress of holidays and the need to be “Pinterest Perfect” can be tough. We’re here to the rescue!
We’ve come up with five things you can use to celebrate and decorate for Easter. Each of these will not take a lot of your time — nor do they require a lot of skill.
Having fun during Easter does not need to take all day. Use some of these tips to make Easter just a bit easier for you this year.
These adorable Easter Cinnamon Rolls are easy peasy. You may have seen the cute bunny shaped rolls. But honestly, who has time for that!? I sure don’t!!
So, instead of twisting your cinnamon rolls into animal shapes, we’re gonna make it simple. Simply cook your store-bought cinnamon rolls like usual. Before they come out of the oven, simply spoon the pre-made icing that comes with them into three separate bowls.
Add ONE drop of food coloring (to give it the pastel color) to each bowl, and stir. Then drizzle onto the cinnamon rolls like you normally would. If you have some cute sprinkles on hand to make them even cuter, you can add them too! See? Easy peasy!
There’s no need to use fancy icing techniques for these adorable Bunny Cupcakes! We used a fun Spring Cake Mix to make the cupcakes, cute Easter cupcake liners (found in the Easter aisle at Walmart for $0.98), pre-dyed green icing from the cake aisle, some cute Easter Sprinkles and a package of marshmallow bunnies. Ice the cupcakes, plop the bunny on and add the sprinkles. Done and done.
How adorable are these?! I love this super easy way to decorate – without a need for crafting!
Look around your house for empty vases, or grab a few at your local Dollar Store. Put some Easter grass in the bottom and fill with plastic eggs.
Simple and easy! It would work on your dining room table, mantle or entry way table.
The next Easter hack is FUN! It’s a fun twist on dying eggs. Instead of dipping the eggs in liquid dye, and having them stay there (which we all know little hands have a hard time doing), you can try this method; rice dyed eggs!
HOW TO MAKE RICE DYED EGGS
Take about a cup of rice, put it in a medium-sized bowl that has a lid. Add around 15 drops of food coloring, nestle the egg on top, put the lid on the container and shake!
Shake until the egg is the desired color (doesn’t take any longer than a couple of minutes.) To do more eggs the same color, simply add 5-7 more drops of food coloring for each additional egg.
I love the textured look of these eggs! And fun for kids without liquid dye!
This Easter hack is one of my favorites: Tattoo Eggs! It’s seriously as simple as boiling eggs, letting them cool, and then applying temporary tattoos to the eggs as you would your skin.
This is a great option if you have little kids, and don’t want their fingers dyed funny colors before Easter morning for Church. The options are endless! You can even have each kid choose a character, and then on Easter, they only hunt the eggs that have their character on the eggs!
Simplify Easter this year. These are just a few simple things you can do – all without blowing your budget!!
