Magic Marker Easter Eggs

If you are looking for a new way to dye eggs with your kids this Easter, this is it. This egg dying technique passes every test that I can think of…

  1. Accessible, non-toxic materials that you already have. Check.
  2. Quick and attention grabbing. Check.
  3. Easy clean-up (of the kitchen and the kid). Check, check.
  4. Moment of magic. Check.

What you’ll need:

  • Eggs
  • Paper towels
  • Washable markers
  • Spray bottle with water and vinegar (1:1 ratio)
  • Rubberbands
  • A plate


1 Color on the paper towel in any pattern. You can do stripes, polka dots, plaid, etc. Make sure to color a large enough area that it will wrap around the egg.

2 With the paper towel on the plate, spritz it wth the vinegar/water solution.

3 Wrap the paper towel around the egg, and cinch in the back with a rubber band.

4 Spritz the egg again, and rub the surface of the paper towel to help transfer the ink.

5 Once it’s dry, about 20 minutes or so, unwrap the egg to reveal the masterpiece.
