Coloring Easter eggs is a time honored event come April (sometimes March). It is a tradition that most children remember very fondly for the rest of their lives. Coloring eggs is a staple of the Easter holiday and alongside receiving Easter baskets (and the candy in them), going on Easter eggs hunts, and posing for pictures with the Easter Bunny, coloring eggs is one of the most fun and special aspects to the holiday.
Eggs can be colored in a variety of ways. There are numerous egg coloring kits available in stores at very affordable prices (most of them sell for under $5) that offer kids the chance to color eggs with dye, paint them with paints, draw on them with markers, or even add glitter and stickers to create a visual pop. Although such egg coloring sessions can be messy they are also very enjoyable and memorable for kids and parents alike.
